Tardes De Cine
Author: Ernesto Garratt
Publisher: B DE BOOKS
Conversaciones con grandes directores Las migrañas no le dan paz a Pedro Almodóvar. Alex de la Iglesia se consume en el consumismo. Tarantino hace una particular interpretación de la clásica película pop Top Gun. Scorsese recuerda esos años de sexo, drogas y rock and roll. Duncan Jones busca separarse de la sombra del padre, el inefable David Bowie. Y David Cronenberg, higiénico en extremo, se niega a darle la mano al autor de este libro que pretende desentrañar las claves del método de estos (y otros) realizadores, los más destacados del momento. Tardes de cine reúne las entrevistas hechas por el periodista y crítico Ernesto Garratt a catorce directores de la primera línea de la industria fílmica. Esta es su lista personal, una clasificación arbitraria y honesta, descarnada a ratos, siempre profunda. Son diálogos que retratan, desde el oficio, la experiencia detrás de las cámaras y la ética particular de estos cineastas. Con cada uno de ellos, el periodista recorre su filmografía y repasa, a través de ensayos reveladores, las características que los han transformado en referentes.

«Esta noche no vas a dormir…». Sangre cubana y un amor casi carnal por el arte, Luis es un seductor instintivo, de los que carecen de reglas e inhibiciones; por eso, ninguna mujer se le resiste, y sus conquistas terminan puntualmente en el taller de Navigli en el que pinta. Sobre sexo, cree saber incluso más de lo que necesita, al menos, hasta que conoce a la propietaria de una tiendecita de vinilos en la que el tiempo parece haberse detenido, quien, sin pedirle permiso, pasa de ser su enemiga jurada a ser su obsesión. Todo por culpa de un hurón. Pues sí, porque, cuando la graciosa mascota comienza a sobrar en casa de ella, una noche de primavera en la que Milán parece mágica, Luis se transforma en el Príncipe Azul: se ocupará de Lucky, pero, a cambio, ella tendrá que posar para él una tarde a la semana, durante seis semanas. Un contrato auténtico, del que Luis perderá pronto el control, arrebatado por una pasión que lo llevará, en el juego del placer, más lejos de lo que nunca ha llegado. Y, mientras persigue la inspiración y, poco a poco, conquista a su presa, no se dará cuenta de que, en realidad, el cazador ha sido cazado y de que puede que, con ella, haya encontrado el amor. Pero ¿está listo para reconocerlo y aceptarlo? Todas las veces que quieras es una historia de erotismo arrollador, que desvela a las mujeres lo que todo hombre querría ocultarles, dentro y fuera de la cama: también los hombres se enamoran y, con el corazón, el sexo sí que no tiene límites…

A major literary debut, an epic tale of love, failure, and unexpected faith set in New York, Amsterdam, and Las Vegas The modern-day Jonah at the center of Joshua Max Feldman's brilliantly conceived retelling of the book of Jonah is a young Manhattan lawyer named Jonah Jacobstein. He's a lucky man: healthy and handsome, with two beautiful women ready to spend the rest of their lives with him and an enormously successful career that gets more promising by the minute. He's celebrating a deal that will surely make him partner when a bizarre, unexpected biblical vision at a party changes everything. Hard as he tries to forget what he saw, this disturbing sign is only the first of many Jonah will witness, and before long his life is unrecognizable. Though this perhaps divine intervention will be responsible for more than one irreversible loss in Jonah's life, it will also cross his path with that of Judith Bulbrook, an intense, breathtakingly intelligent woman who's no stranger to loss herself. As this funny and bold novel moves to Amsterdam and then Las Vegas, Feldman examines the way we live now while asking an age-old question: How do you know if you're chosen?
