Inhaltsangabe: SIGNS OF LIFE is actor/poet Michael Madsen's (Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, et al) first book of photography that chronicles his eye for the unusual: from the hotels, diners, and hip lounges to the vanishing small shops and businesses that have become an endangered species in today's sea of corporate logos. This book also captures the rusted, abandoned symbols of where life once was, hence the other signs of life. From cool haunts in Toronto such as: The Cadillac Lounge and The Silver Dollar Room, to the chilling and tragic locals of Texas to Terezin and the immensity of Bejing's Great Wall of China.
Featuring 78 original photos that were shot by Michael Madsen while on location, these photos have appeared at art exhibitions throughout the world.
35 new poetry selections are interspersed and contrast the visuals which once again prove Madsen as an accomplished and actualized American poet. This book follows the success of Madsen's 10 Year Anniversary Edition;The Complete Poetic Works of Michael Madsen, Vol I: 1995-2005. Madsen dedicates this book to the memory of his friend and Reservoir Dogs, co-star Chris Penn.
Über den Autor:
At 6' 2 and 190 pounds, Michael Madsen - equally adept at portraying heroic as well as villainous characters. There's just something in the way he delivers his lines with an underlying aggression masked behind his gravelly tones that makes you feel very uneasy about his true intentions!
Madsen first learned his craft at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre, where he worked under John Malkovich, one of the theater's founders. His first few film roles were minor ones, in such projects as Against All Hope, Racing with the Moon and The Natural. His work received considerable notice, however, after his knife-edged performance as deranged killer Vince Miller in Kill Me Again and then as Susan Sarandon's rough-edged boyfriend Jimmy in Thelma & Louise. His big breakthrough, however, came as the sadistic jewel thief Mr. Blonde in Quentin Tarantino's low-budget hit Reservoir Dogs. Movie audiences were glued to their seats as Madsen playfully danced around a tied-down and terrified police officer, slicing him with a knife and splashing gasoline all over the petrified man, all to the cheery tunes of Stealer's Wheels' Stuck In the Middle With You.
Not to be typecast, Madsen surprised many with his performance as foster parent Glen Greenwood in the hit family movie Free Willy before returning to another criminal role as bank robber Rudy Travis in the remake of the Steve McQueen heist flick The Getaway, and then back again as Glen Greenwood in Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home.
Madsen continues to turn in edge-of-the-seat performances as morally bankrupt individuals on the wrong side of the law, as in his intense on-screen showings in Donnie Brasco, Mulholland Falls, and High Noon. In 2003 he teamed up again with Tarantino in both volumes of Tarantino's magnum martial arts/revenge opus Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 as the coldly evil Budd (aka Sidewinder).
In addition to his film work, Madsen has contributed dialogue to two of Sony PlayStations's biggest-selling games, Grand Theft Auto 3 and Driv3r, as well as writing several books of his own poetry. Although uncomfortable with fame, Madsen's star continues to shine in Hollywood and his droll, yet captivating acting style is ensuring him a steady flow of work as one on the screen's favorite heavies.
