Die Modesty-Blaise-Comics und -Romane genießen nicht nur bei Krimifans längst Kultstatus. Modesty ist jung, sexy, clever und hat es als Kopf der Verbrecherorganisation >Das Netz zu Reichtum gebracht. Seit ihrem Rückzug aus der Unterwelt lebt sie in einem schicken Londoner Penthouse. Trotz Ruhestand geraten sie und ihr treuer Gefährte Willie Garvin immer wieder Hals über Kopf in die wildesten Abenteuer, die sie nur durch überragende Kampftechnik, geniales Improvisationstalent und nicht selten eine gehörige Portion Glück überleben. Auf einem Segeltörn in der Tasmanischen See rettet Modesty einen Schiffbrüchigen, der sich als der berühmte, seit zwei Jahren verschollene Maler Lucian Fletcher entpuppt. Seltsam nur, dass diesem jegliche Erinnerung an den fraglichen Zeitraum fehlt. Modesty will mit der ganzen Sache nichts zu tun haben - bis sie und ihr Partner Willie Garvin von Unbekannten zu einem dreisten Kunstraub gezwungen werden. Als Widersacher treten der veilchenäugige Orchideenzüchter Beauregard, der schießwütige falsche Priester Uriah und die üppige Nymphomanin Clarissa auf. Ihren wahren Gegner lernen Modesty und Willie allerdings erst auf der Dracheninsel kennen. Modesty Blaise ist ein typisches Produkt der >swinging sixties und so britisch wie die Beatles. Lutz Göllner Mit Die Klaue des Drachen startet die Neuausgabe der legendären Modesty-Blaise-Romane in überarbeiteten Übersetzungen im Unionsverlag. Modesty Blaise ist wohl eines der bizarrsten Produkte der Pulp-Geschichte. kaliber.38.de Peter O'Donnell flunkert mit tiefem Ernst gewaltig drauflos.

“We watch what is moving fast from a platform that is also moving fast,” writes Geoffrey O’Brien in the beginning of Stolen Glimpses, Captive Shadows. This collection—gathering the best of a decade’s worth of writing on film by one of our most bracing and imaginative critics—ranges freely over the past, present, and future of the movies, from the primal visual poetry of the silent era to the dizzying permutations of the merging digital age. Here are 38 searching essays on contemporary blockbusters like Spider-Man and Minority Report; recent innovative triumphs like The Tree of Life and Beasts of the Southern Wild; and the intricacies of genre mythmaking from Chinese martial arts films to the horror classics of Val Lewton. O’Brien probes the visionary art of classic filmmakers—von Sternberg, Fod, Cocteau, Kurosawa, Godard—and the implications of such diverse recent work as Farenheit 9/11, The Passion of Christ, and The Sopranos. Each of these pieces is alert to the always-surprising intersections between screen life and real life, and the way that film from the beginning has shaped our sense of memory and history.

Proposes that cinematic time is not a fixed idea, but a dynamic exchange between film and viewer. Doing Time addresses two areas of interest in recent film study—film temporality and film philosophy—to propose an innovative theorization of cinematic time that sees it as a dynamic process of engagement, or something we do as viewers. This active relation to cinematic time, which discloses a film’s temporal character, is called its “timeliness.” Here it is traced across a range of fascinating case studies from Hollywood and the global art cinema, uncovering each film’s characteristic way of “doing time.” Throughout, the ambiguities of filmic time are held as powerful attractions as they modulate film viewing: such pauses, gaps, repetitions, and stretches of time illuminate a living field that extends from viewing activity. Drawing on the writings of French film critic and theorist André Bazin, as well as the phenomenology of Martin Heidegger and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Lee Carruthers forwards a claim about the value of cinematic time for thinking. She also raises the tasks of film analysis and interpretation to renewed visibility. By prioritizing the viewer’s experience of filmic temporality, and offering a rich vocabulary for describing this exchange, Carruthers articulates a new sphere of theoretical inquiry that invites film viewers (and readers) to participate. “Lee Carruthers makes an original and powerful argument about the importance of ‘timeliness,’ providing a much-needed alternative approach to that of Deleuze to thinking seriously about the temporality of cinema. Her chapters, including one on The Tree of Life, are masterful criticism.” — William Rothman, author of Must We Kill the Thing We Love? Emersonian Perfectionism and the Films of Alfred Hitchcock

In HIGH CONTRAST, author Sharon Willis examines the dynamic relationships between racial and sexual difference in Hollywood films from the 1980s and 1990s. Seizing on the way such differences are sensationalized and eroticized on screen--with little regard for political context--Willis restores that context through close reviews of a wide range of movies, such as LETHAL WEAPON, FATAL ATTRACTION, PULP FICTION, and others.

The female spy has long exerted a strong grip on the popular imagination. With reference to popular fiction, film and television Violent Femmes examines the figure of the female spy as a nexus of contradictory ideas about femininity, power, sexuality and national identity. Fictional representations of women as spies have recurrently traced the dynamic of women’s changing roles in British and American culture. Employing the central trope of women who work as spies, Rosie White examines cultural shifts during the twentieth century regarding the role of women in the professional workplace. Violent Femmes examines the female spy as a figure in popular discourse which simultaneously conforms to cultural stereotypes and raises questions about women's roles in British and American culture, in terms of gender, sexuality and national identity. Immensely useful for a wide range of courses such as film and television studies, English, cultural studies, women’s studies, gender studies, media studies, communications and history, this book will appeal to students from undergraduate level upwards.
