Castaways of the Image Planet: Movies, Show Business, Public Spectacle
Geoffrey O’Brien. Collects 16 years’ worth of essays on film & related pop culture by cultural critic O’Brien. Most of the pieces were originally pub. in The NY Review of Books, The Village Voice, The New Republic, Film Comment, Filmmaker, & The NY Times. The topics range from the invention of cinema to contemporary F-X aesthetics; from Shakespeare films to Seinfeld; from ‘30s screwball comedy to Hong Kong martial arts movies; from the roots of spy movies to the televising of Clinton’s testimony. Some pieces are profiles of individual directors or actors -- Ed Wood, Orson Welles, Michael Powell, Marlon Brando, Alfred Hitchcock, Dana Andrews, The Marx Brothers, Bing Crosby -- whose careers are probed to look for the point where obsession meets public myth-making.
