Fellini, Federico.

Fellini 8 1/2 / directed by Federico Fellini.

[U.K.] : Nouveaux Pictures, 2001.

Abstract: Fresh off of the international success of La Dolce Vita, master director Federico Fellini moved into the realm of self-reflexive autobiography with what is widely believed to be his finest and most personal work. Marcello Mastroianni delivers a brilliant performance as Fellini's alter ego Guido Anselmi, a film director overwhelmed by the large-scale production he has undertaken. He finds himself harangued by producers, his wife, and his mistress while he struggles to find the inspiration to finish his film. The stress plunges Guido into an interior world where fantasy and memory impinge on reality. Fellini jumbles narrative logic by freely cutting from flashbacks to dream sequences to the present until it becomes impossible to pry them apart, creating both a psychological portrait of Guido's interior world and the surrealistic, circus-like exterior world that came to be known as "Felliniesque." 8 1/2 won an Academy Award for Best Foreign-Language Film, as well as the grand prize at the Moscow Film Festival, and was one of the most influential and commercially successful European art movies of the 1960s, inspiring such later films as Bob Fosse's All That Jazz (1979), Woody Allen's Stardust Memories (1980), and even Lucio Fulci's Italian splatter film Un Gatto nel Cervello (1990).

Mangia, prega, ama / Directed by Ryan Murphy

[S.l.] : Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, 2011

Abstract: It's 3 a.m. and Elizabeth Gilbert is sobbing on the bathroom floor. She's in her thirties, she has a husband, a house, they're trying for a baby - and she doesn't want any of it. A divorce and a turbulent love affair later, she emerges battered and bewildered and realises it is time to pursue her own journey in search of three things she has been missing: pleasure, devotion and balance. So she travels to Rome, where she learns Italian from handsome, brown-eyed identical twins and gains twenty-five pounds, an ashram in India, where she finds that enlightenment entails getting up in the middle of the night to scrub the temple floor, and Bali where a toothless medicine man of indeterminate age offers her a new path to peace: simply sit still and smile. And slowly happiness begins to creep up on her.

[S.l.] : Medusa Home Entertainment, 2003

Abstract: Personaggio centrale è il giornalista Marcello Rubini, testimone e complice di un mondo caotico e volgare, cinico, privo di valori e soprattutto minato da un’insopportabile noia di vivere. Il film si apre con l’immagine di un Cristo di gesso trasportato in elicottero nel cielo di Roma e si chiude a Fregene, davanti al mare, dove i pescatori hanno portato a riva un pesce mostruoso e dove una ragazza, giovane e dagli occhi innocenti (simbolo di quella grazia che gli uomini persi nei loro piccoli e grandi fallimenti non sanno più vedere), tenta invano di parlare con il protagonista, che non la riconosce e non riesce a sentire le sue parole. In mezzo, tanti episodi a volte tragici e a volte grotteschi: i paparazzi di Via Veneto e le cittadine di provincia dove accadono miracoli, le orge notturne nelle ville dei nuovi ricchi e le serate intellettuali che si concludono in drammatici suicidi. L’intento è di mettere in scena la disperata impotenza di una civiltà ormai allo sbando e di tanti individui incapaci di vivere sentimenti autentici. La scelta stilistica è però diametralmente opposta. Invece di raffreddare lo sguardo, Fellini lo colora di ironia e di sarcasmo. Il regista riminese accumula fatti, azioni e movimenti in un carosello sfrenato che compone un affresco composito, colorito, a tratti disordinato ma sempre appassionante.

Confessions / Saint Augustine ; translated by Henry Chadwick.

Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2008.

Oxford world's classics

Abstract: In this new translation the brilliant and impassioned descriptions of Augustine's colourful early life are conveyed to the English reader with accuracy and art. Augustine tells of his wrestlings to master his sexual drive, his rare ascent from a humble Algerian farm to the edge of the corridors of high power at the imperial court of Milan, and his renunciation of secular ambition and marriage as he recovered the faith that his mother had taught him. It was in a Milan garden that Augustine finally achieved the act of will to Christian conversion, which he compared to a lazy man in bed finally deciding it is time to get up and face the day.

Abstract: The period in which we live is marked by increasingly frequent and intense cultural encounters of all kinds. However we react to it, the global trend towards mixing or hybridization is impossible to miss, from curry and chips - recently voted the favourite dish in Britain - to Thai saunas, Zen Judaism, Nigerian Kung Fu, 'Bollywood' films or salsa or reggae music. Some people celebrate these phenomena, whilst others fear or condemn them. No wonder, then, that theorists such as Homi Bhabha, Stuart Hall, Paul Gilroy, and Ien Ang, have engaged with hybridity in their work and sought to untangle these complex events and reactions; or that a variety of disciplines now devote increasing attention to the works of these theorists and to the processes of cultural encounter, contact, interaction, exchange and hybridization. In this concise book, leading historian Peter Burke considers these fascinating and contested phenomena, ranging over theories, practices, processes and events in a manner that is as wide-ranging and vibrant as the topic at hand.
