Shutter Island [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Shutter Island by Meredith Day Book Resume:

In 1954, up-and-coming U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels is assigned to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Boston's Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital. He's been pushing for an assignment on the island for personal reasons, but before long he thinks he's been brought there as part of a twisted plot by hospital doctors whose radical treatments range from unethical to illegal to downright sinister. Teddy's shrewd investigating skills soon provide a promising lead, but the hospital refuses him access to records he suspects would break the case wide open. As a hurricane cuts off communication with the mainland, more dangerous criminals "escape" in the confusion, and the puzzling, improbable clues multiply, Teddy begins to doubt everything - his memory, his partner, even his own sanity.

Dennis Lehane's masterpiece of mystery and suspense—brought to life for the first time as a graphic novel In 1954, U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels and his partner, Chuck Aule, are sent to Shutter Island to find a mass murderer who has escaped from Ashecliffe Hospital, a fortress-like federal institution for the criminally insane. As an intense hurricane bears relentlessly down on the island, the marshals are forced to piece together clues to a shocking puzzle hidden within Shutter Island, taking them on a dark, twisted journey, where paranoia assumes an air of cool rationality and the line between sanity and madness disappears... Filled with his trademark grit, insight, and pathos, Shutter Island is vintage Dennis Lehane.

The Fantastic in Holocaust Literature and Film

Shutter Island [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Fantastic in Holocaust Literature and Film by Judith B. Kerman,John Edgar Browning Book Resume:

When reality becomes fantastic, what literary effects will render it credible or comprehensible? To respond meaningfully to the surreality of the Holocaust, writers must produce works of moral and emotional complexity. One way they have achieved this is through elements of fantasy. Covering a range of theoretical perspectives, this collection of essays explores the use of fantastic story-telling in Holocaust literature and film. Writers such as Jane Yolen and Art Spiegelman are discussed, as well as the sci-fi television series V (1983), Stephen King's novella Apt Pupil (1982), Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth (2006) and Martin Scorsese's dark thriller Shutter Island (2010).

Shutter Island (Patient 67)

Shutter Island [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Shutter Island (Patient 67) by Dennis Lehane Book Resume:

Det är sommaren 1954. På Shutter Island ligger Ashcliffe Hospital, ett hårdbevakat sjukhus för mentalsjuka brottslingar. Nu har en av dem lyckats fly därifrån. Kriminalaren Teddy Daniels kallas dit för att tillsammans med sin kollega Chuck Aule ta hand om fallet. Men på Ashcliffe Hospital är ingenting vad det synes vara. Och detsamma gäller Teddy Daniels. Består hans uppdrag verkligen i att ta reda på vad som hänt den saknade Rachel Solando? Eller har han kommit dit för att undersöka ryktena om den radikala psykiatri som lär bedrivas på Ashcliffe Hospital och som sägs innefatta drogexperiment och hjärntvätt och ingå som en del i den kalla krigföringen mot Sovjetunionen? Eller har han helt andra, högst privata skäl att befinna sig på Shutter Island? Ju längre tiden går, desto mer hopar sig frågorna: Vad är det egentligen som pågår bakom sjukhusets murar? Hur kan någon överhuvudtaget avvika från denna strängt isolerade ö? Varför är den tomma fyren omgärdad av elektriskt stängsel och beväpnade vakter? Och vem är den patient 67 som den förrymde fången nämnt i ett kodat, kvarlämnat meddelande? Ju mer Teddy och Chuck försöker kartlägga de mysterier som omger Shutter Island, desto diffusare blir bilden. Ju närmare sanningen de kommer, desto mer undanglidande blir den – och desto mer övertygade blir de om att någon försöker driva dem över vansinnets brant. Översättare: Ulf Gyllenhak

Men's Cinema

Shutter Island [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Men's Cinema by Stella Bruzzi Book Resume:

Men's Cinema offers a fresh theorisation of men in Hollywood cinema via a theoretical discussion of definitions of masculinity and the close textual analysis of classic and contemporary films. Through an examination of mise-en-scene, Men's Cinema moves beyond discussions of representation and narrative to an exploration of the physical or instinctive effects of cinema and how we are invited to engage with, desire or identify with Hollywood's vision of men and masculinity. By delineating how Hollywood has built up and refined the language of men's cinema through a series of recurrent, refined tropes, this book critically explores masculinity and the concept of a male aesthetic within film.Films discussed include: The Deer Hunter, Dirty Harry, Goodfellas, Inception, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Once Upon a Time in the West, Point Break, Raging Bull, Rebel Without A Cause, Reservoir Dogs, Sherlock Holmes, There's Always Tomorrow, The Wild Bunch.

CinemaÕs Sinister Psychiatrists

Shutter Island [Pdf/ePub] eBook

CinemaÕs Sinister Psychiatrists by Sharon Packer, M.D. Book Resume:

"This book discusses films with diabolical drugging, unethical experimentation, involuntary incarceration, sexual exploitation, lobotomies, "shock schlock," conspiracy theories and military medicine, to show how fact informs fantasy, and when fantasy trumps reality. Except for six "golden years" from 1957 to 1963, portrayals of bad psychiatrists far outnumber good ones and this book tells how and why that was"--

Das Spiel mit der Realität in Martin Scorseses "Shutter Island"

Shutter Island [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Das Spiel mit der Realität in Martin Scorseses "Shutter Island" by Lisa Demmel Book Resume:

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Philosophie - Sonstiges, Note: 2,0, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Veranstaltung: Proseminar: Traum und Wirklichkeit in Film und Musik. Philosophische Grundlagen zur Analyse moderner Medien - oder zum Begriff der "Kontingenz", Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Satellite Awards, Teen Choice Awards, San Diego Film Critics Society Award und noch viele weitere Auszeichnungen hat Scorseses Film „Shutter Island“, basierend auf dem gleichnamigen Roman von Dennis Lehane, abgeräumt. Der Streifen polarisiert: Die Filmzeitschrift „Schnitt“ bezeichnet ihn als „das heimliche Meisterwerk unter [seinen] Zwischenwerken“, Carsten Baumgardt von der Redaktion meint im Gegensatz dazu, Shutter Island sei „zwar durchaus ein guter Psycho-Thriller, aber kein Meisterwerk mit Preispotential“. So gehen die Meinungen bei den Kritikern auseinander, doch dass der Film im Gedächtnis bleibt, ist unumstritten. Zu verwirrend, zu komplex, zu überraschend ist das Ende. Nach Vorführungen brechen im Internet Diskussionen aus, ob Leonardo Di Caprio in seiner Rolle als US-Marshal Edward „Teddy“ Daniels nun geisteskrank ist oder ob er schlicht resigniert. Scorsese schafft es, mit der Wahrnehmung zu spielen: Ist Teddy ein Mörder? Ist er schizophren? Alles ein abgekatertes Spiel oder in Wirklichkeit gut gemeinte Hilfe? Der Zuschauer ist fast gezwungen, sich ein zweites Mal hinzusetzen und den Film noch einmal anzuschauen – mit 120 Prozent Aufmerksamkeit.

Wahnsinn oder Phantastik? Analyse von "Shutter Island" unter Berücksichtigung der Merkmale der Phantastik by Jessica Forberger Book Resume:

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: 2,0, Universitat zu Koln (Institut fur deutsche Sprache und Literatur I), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Martin Scorseses Shutter Island" erfullt den Zuschauer nicht nur mit Grauen und Schauder, sondern hinterlasst eine Menge ungeklarter Ratsel. Elemente des Unheimlichen, Ubernaturlichen und Wahnsinnigen fuhren bei dem Rezipienten zu einem Moment der Unsicherheit, der dem der Phantastik sehr ahnelt. Die Grenzen zwischen Realitat und Fiktion, Psychose und Traum, wahr und falsch verschwimmen recht schnell. Eine Ambivalenz zwischen physischem und psychischem Gefangensein entsteht. Der Zuschauer verliert den Uberblick uber die Handlung und wird zum Schluss mit der Auflosung allein gelassen. Nun stellt sich die Frage, in wie weit der Film Shutter Island" in das Genre der Phantastik eingeordnet werden kann und welche Rolle der Wahnsinn als Motiv hierbei spielt.

Hollywood Puzzle Films by Warren Buckland Book Resume:

From Inception to The Lake House, moviegoers are increasingly flocking to narratologically complex puzzle films.

The essays in Hollywood Puzzle Films examine the appropriation of puzzle film techniques by contemporary Hollywood dramas and blockbusters through questions of narrative, time, and altered realities. Analyzing movies like Source Code, The Butterfly Effect, Donnie Darko, Déjà Vu, and adaptations of Philip K. Dick, contributors explore the implications of Hollywood's new movie mind games.
