Jefferson, NC: McFarland & Company, Inc, c. 1991. Hardcover. ISBN: 0899506186. Binding and contents are almost like new. No DJ. ; 9-1/4" Tall, vii + 200pp. Dark gray cloth, bright gold spine & front cover lettering. MOVIES. The brash young men who came to be known collectively as 'the movie brats' - a group which included Martin Scorsese, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, and Brian De Palma, are the directors examined in this book. They all possessed several key similarities: technical expertise, almost encyclopedic knowledge of the classic Hollywood canon, and strong commerical sense. Their personal histories and childhood interests demonstrate that the five young lions of this sutdy are undeniably children of the postmodern age. At the same time, a clear link can be demonstrated between their shared film school background and their familiarity with the films of Hollywood's classic period, the works of certain directors, and their mastery of a wide range of film styles, genres, and techniques. This book examines the training and backgrounds of these five young lions, plus the postmodern world into which they were born. Notes. Bibliography. Index. Dozens of b/w photos, many of them movie stills.. Fine .
