Inhaltsangabe: ?An enjoyable, irascible collection? of smart and sometimes-scathing film criticism from a famously candid author (Library Journal).
Everyone?s a critic, especially in the digital age?but no one takes on the movies like multiple award-winning author Harlan Ellison. Renowned both for fiction (A Boy and His Dog) and pop-culture commentary (The Glass Teat), Ellison offers in this collection twenty-five years? worth of essays and film criticism.
It?s pure, raw, unapologetic opinion. Star Wars? ?Luke Skywalker is a nerd and Darth Vader sucks runny eggs.? Big Trouble in Little China? ?A cheerfully blathering live-action cartoon that will give you release from the real pressures of your basically dreary lives.? Despite working within the industry himself, Ellison never learned how to lie. So punches go unpulled, the impersonal becomes personal, and sometimes even the critics get critiqued, as he shares his views on Pauline Kael or Siskel and Ebert. Ultimately, it?s a wild journey through the cinematic landscape, touching on everything from Fellini to the Friday the 13th franchise.
As Leonard Maltin writes in his preface, ?I don?t know how valuable it is to learn Harlan Ellison?s opinion of this film or that, but I do know that reading an Ellison essay is gong to be provocative, infuriating, hilarious, or often a combination of the above. It is never time wasted. . . . Let me assure you, Harlan Ellison is never dull.?
Über den Autor: Harlan Ellison has been called ?one of the great living American short story writers? by the Washington Post. In a career spanning more than fifty years, he has won more awards than any other living fantasist. Ellison has written or edited one hundred fourteen books; more than seventeen hundred stories, essays, articles, and newspaper columns; two dozen teleplays; and a dozen motion pictures. He has won the Hugo Award eight and a half times (shared once); the Nebula Award three times; the Bram Stoker Award, presented by the Horror Writers Association, five times (including the Lifetime Achievement Award in 1996); the Edgar Award of the Mystery Writers of America twice; the Georges Melies Fantasy Film Award twice; and two Audie Awards (for the best in audio recordings); and he was awarded the Silver Pen for Journalism by PEN, the international writers? union. He was presented with the first Living Legend Award by the International Horror Critics at the 1995 World Horror Convention. Ellison is the only author in Hollywood ever to win the Writers Guild of America award for Outstanding Teleplay (solo work) four times, most recently for ?Paladin of the Lost Hour,? his Twilight Zone episode that was Danny Kaye?s final role, in 1987. In 2006, Ellison was awarded the prestigious title of Grand Master by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Dreams With Sharp Teeth, the documentary chronicling his life and works, was released on DVD in May 2009.
