WORLD FILM LOCATIONS: TORONTO. Ed. by Tom Ue. Intellect Books, Bristol, 2014. Published in the U.S.A. by Intellect Books, University of Chicago Press. 128 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9781783201952 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Toronto is a changing city that has been a source of reflection and inspiration to writers and artists whose work focuses on the conditions and prospects of human life. A city on the move, it demands policies and regulation, and it offers the pleasures and perils of the massive and the anonymous. As a site of study, the city is inherently multidisciplinary, with natural ties to history, geography, sociology, architecture, art history, literature, and many other fields. World Film Locations: Toronto explores and reveals the relationship between the city and cinema using a predominately visual approach. The juxtaposition of the images used in combination with insightful essays helps to demonstrate the role that the city has played in a number of hit films, including Cinderella Man, American Psycho, and X-Men and encourages the reader to frame an understanding of Toronto and the world around us. The contributors trace Toronto's emergence as an international city and demonstrate the narrative interests that it has continued to inspire among filmmakers, both Canadian and international.
