"A virtuoso performance. In this work of vastly erudite cultural imagination, Long both dazzles and illuminates. He has fashioned, in elegant prose, a thrilling mosaic of critical interpretation, one that is assured a central place on the leading edge of music scholarship."--Albin Zak, author of The Poetics of Rock: Cutting Tracks Making Records

The end of the 1970s was a turning point for science fiction and horror films. A new film would blend these genres together into a cinematic experience that would cross boundries, and which would feature a villain that audiences and critics alike would find far scarier than the knife wielding antics of Michael Myers or Jason and Pamela Voorhees That film was Alicn.

People ask me all the time why Im writing a book in the first place. I simply tell them that its for inspiration for people whose goal in life is to become a writer and author since I started at such a young age while in high school still. I plan to have this book associated within my previous school campus known as Moreno Valley High School. I truly believe anyone of any age has the ability to write and publish their own book, but what a lot people lack is motivation to go through with it. Hopefully, this book gives them a sense of purpose and also gives the readers some type of inspiration to write their own books.

Zbigniew Preisner s Three Colors Trilogy Blue White Red

Director Krzysztof Kieslowski's Three Colors trilogy—Blue (1993), White (1993), and Red (1994)—is one of the great achievements of European film. A meditation on liberty, equality, and fraternity, these three films marked the culmination of the director's career, as well as the zenith of one of the most important creative collaborations in 20th-century cinema-between Kieslowski, scriptwriter Krzysztof Piesiewicz, and composer Zbigniew Preisner. Thanks to their close working relationship, music for the Three Colors trilogy achieves both a focal narrative and philosophical function. At times, Preisner's music advances the narrative independently of the films' other codes; at other times, it creates a metaphorical space into which the audience is invited in order to read for "deeper" messages. As the first major scholarly treatment of Preisner's music, Nicholas Reyland's Zbigniew Preisner's Three Colors Trilogy: A Film Score Guide fills an important void in film score scholarship. In this guide, Reyland analyzes the historical context of the film scores, the life of the composer, the hermeneutic and narrative role of the music within the film, and the musical scoring techniques used for the trilogy. This volume also draws on an interplay of established "classic" approaches to analyzing film music and more recent approaches in the exploration of its themes and readings. In addition, the composer's willingness to be interviewed by Reyland enhances the musicological scholarship of this book, giving the reader privileged access into the process of scoring. A significant contribution to both film studies and musicological literature, this book celebrates one of the great cinematic achievements of the last few decades.

Using the seminal anthropology of Rene Girard and drawing out its radical implications Virtually Christian reconfigures the traditional framework of theology. Gone are the heavenly otherworld and its metaphysical God. In their place is revealed a God deeply implicated in the human story and laboring with us for a transformed earth. The identity and mission of Jesus become fully understandable against this background. The consequences for teaching and practice are enormous and especially relevant for emerging church Christians. This book provides a vital contemporary reading of both the gospel message and classical Christian thought.
