A tale of four people trapped by their addictions, the basis for the acclaimed Darren Aronofsky film, by the author of Last Exit to Brooklyn. Sara Goldfarb is devastated by the death of her husband. She spends her days watching game shows and obsessing over appearing on television as a contestant—and her prescription diet pills only accelerate her mania. Her son, Harry, is living in the streets with his friend Tyrone and girlfriend Marion, where they spend their days selling drugs and dreaming of escape. When their heroin supply dries up, all three descend into an abyss of dependence and despair, their lives, like Sara’s, doomed by the destructive power of drugs. Tragic and captivating, Requiem for a Dream is one of Selby’s most powerful works, and an indelible portrait of the ravages of addiction. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Hubert Selby Jr. including rare photos from the author’s estate.
A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! In his first major book on the subject of income inequality, Noam Chomsky skewers the fundamental tenets of neoliberalism and casts a clear, cold, patient eye on the economic facts of life. What are the ten principles of concentration of wealth and power at work in America today? They're simple enough: reduce democracy, shape ideology, redesign the economy, shift the burden onto the poor and middle classes, attack the solidarity of the people, let special interests run the regulators, engineer election results, use fear and the power of the state to keep the rabble in line, manufacture consent, marginalize the population. In Requiem for the American Dream, Chomsky devotes a chapter to each of these ten principles, and adds readings from some of the core texts that have influenced his thinking to bolster his argument. To create Requiem for the American Dream, Chomsky and his editors, the filmmakers Peter Hutchison, Kelly Nyks, and Jared P. Scott, spent countless hours together over the course of five years, from 2011 to 2016. After the release of the film version, Chomsky and the editors returned to the many hours of tape and transcript and created a document that included three times as much text as was used in the film. The book that has resulted is nonetheless arguably the most succinct and tightly woven of Chomsky's long career, a beautiful vessel--including old-fashioned ligatures in the typeface--in which to carry Chomsky's bold and uncompromising vision, his perspective on the economic reality and its impact on our political and moral well-being as a nation. "During the Great Depression, which I'm old enough to remember, it was bad–much worse subjectively than today. But there was a sense that we'll get out of this somehow, an expectation that things were going to get better . . ." —from Requiem for the American Dream
“An extraordinary achievement . . . a vision of hell so stern it cannot be chuckled or raged aside.”—The New York Times Book Review A classic of postwar American literature, Last Exit to Brooklyn created shock waves upon its release in 1964 with its raw, vibrant language and startling revelations of New York City’s underbelly. The prostitutes, drunks, addicts, and johns of Selby’s Brooklyn are fierce and lonely creatures, desperately searching for a moment of transcendence amidst the decay and brutality of the waterfront—though none have any real hope of escape. Last Exit to Brooklyn offers a disturbing yet hauntingly sensitive portrayal of American life, and nearly fifty years after publication, it stands as a crucial and masterful work of modern fiction. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Hubert Selby Jr. including rare photos from the author’s estate.
“A terrifying journey into the darkest corners of the psyche” by the author of Requiem for a Dream and Last Exit to Brooklyn (The Guardian). A small-time criminal sits alone in his cell, his mind reeling with sadistic thoughts of retribution against the police and, eventually, all those he believes have failed him throughout his life. A deeply disturbing exploration of a character the Guardian described as “a genuinely frightening American Psycho,” Hubert Selby Jr.’s second novel is made all the more chilling by the narrator’s brief flashes of humanity. The Room is a tale so terrifying the author himself couldn’t read it for decades after writing it. Called “brutal” by the New York Times when it was first published, it is a dark masterpiece about a man who may be temporarily trapped in jail, but whose true prison is his own anger, as he is enslaved by out-of-control passions and sickening fantasies of revenge. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Hubert Selby Jr. including rare photos from the author’s estate.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 1,7, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, Veranstaltung: Einführung in die Filmanalyse, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: REQUIEM FOR A DREAM (Darren Aronofsky, USA 2000) ist ein US-amerikanischer Film vom Regisseur Darren Aronofsky aus dem Jahr 2000. Auf dem gleichnamigen Roman von Hubert Selby Jr. basierend, erzählt der Film den Niedergang von vier Drogensüchtigen in Brooklyn. Die jungen Leute Harry (Jared Leto), sein Freund Tyrone (Marlon Wayans) und seine Freundin Marion (Jennifer Connelly) konsumieren jede Art von Droge von Marihuana bis Heroin und versuchen sich mit dem Verkauf von Drogen über Wasser zu halten. Sie sehnen sich nach einem besseren Leben, geraten jedoch im Laufe des Films immer tiefer in die Abhängigkeit. Sara Goldfarb (Ellen Burstyn), Harrys Mutter, ist eine einsame, verwitwete Frau, die ihre Tage vor dem Fernseher verbringt und für ihren großen Traum, einen Besuch bei ihrer Lieblingsfernsehshow, bereit ist alles zu tun. Um schnell Gewicht zu verlieren, lässt sie sich Appetitzügler verschreiben. Der Konsum von Diätpillen führt bei der alten Frau zu Wahnvorstellungen und letztlich zum völligen Realitätsverlust. Am Ende des Films ist jeder allein und die Träume sind „gestorben“ : Sara landet in der Psychiatrie, Tyrone im Gefängnis, Harry verliert einen Arm und Marion wird für ihre Drogensucht zur Prostituierten. Der Film enthält eine große Anzahl verschiedener visueller Techniken von Split Screen, über Zeitraffer, Snorry Cam und Fischauge, bis hin zu Computersimulationen. Die vorliegende Seminararbeit beschränkt sich auf die Analyse der Kamera- und der Montagetechnik. Dazu dienen ausgewählte Szenen, deren Wirkung und Bedeutung für den Film im Verlauf der Analyse herausgearbeitet werden.
