The Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism Is Endangering Our Families--And How to Save Them

Descriere: The face of entertainment has changed radically over the last decade--and dangerously so. Stars like Britney, Paris, Lindsay, Amy Winehouse--and their media enablers--have altered what we consider "normal" behavior. According to addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky and business and entertainment expert Dr. S. Mark Young, a high proportion of celebrities suffer from traits associated with clinical narcissism--vanity, exhibitionism, entitlement, exploitativeness--and the rest of us, especially young people, are mirroring what we witness nightly on our TV and computer screens. A provocative, eye-opening study, The Mirror Effect sounds a timely warning, raising important questions about our changing culture--and provides insights for parents, young people, and anyone who wonders what the cult of celebrity is really doing to America.

Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner

Pret: 88,00 RON

Paul Sammon

Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner

The 1992 release of the "Director's Cut" only confirmed what the international film cognoscenti have know all along: Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, based on Philip K. Dick's brilliant and troubling SF novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, still rules as the most visually dense, thematically challenging, and influential SF film ever made. Future Noir is the story of that triumph. The making of Blade Runner was a seven-year odyssey that would test the stamina and the imagination of writers, producers, special effects wizards, and the most innovative art directors and set designers in the industry. A fascinating look at the ever-shifting interface between commerce and the art that is modern Hollywood, Future Noir is the intense, intimate, anything-but-glamerous inside account of how the work of SF's most uncompromising author was transformed into a critical sensation, a commercial success, and a cult classic.

It's Not about Me

Continuing the story of the hugely successful television and radio broadcaster, this sequel documents the remaining journey of self-discovery undertaken by Chris Evans. Picking up after the host's purchase of the immensely popular Virgin Radio, the account depicts how Evans had become a media mogul in his own right, until his life took a darker turn. The end of his career at his own station is covered, followed by the ensuing bitter court case and his bout with alcoholism. Highlighting his discovery of singer Billie Piper and his second chance at fame, this biography captures Chris Evans as he rose phoenix-like from the ashes again, regaining his popularity and professional reputation. Told with wit, verve, and startling honesty, this is the final part of one man's quest in which he learns what holds the most importance in life.
