The Dud Avocado – Virago Modern Classics

Posted by Notcot on Jul 26, 2012 in Cult Film
The Dud Avocado - Virago Modern Classics

THE DUD AVOCADO gained instant cult status on first publication and remains a timeless portrait of a woman hellbent on living. It is, as the GUARDIAN observes, ‘one of the best novels about growing up fast’. Sally Jay Gorce is a woman with a mission. It’s the 1950s, she’s young, and she’s in Paris. Having dyed her hair pink, she wears evening dresses in the daytime and vows to go native in a way not even the natives can manage. Embarking on an educational programme that includes an affair with a married man (which fizzles out when she realises he’s single and wants to marry her); nights in cabarets and jazz clubs in the company of assorted “citizens of the world” an entanglement with a charming psychopath; and a bit part in a film financed by a famous matador. But an education like this doesn’t come cheap. Will our heroine be forced back to the States to fulfill her destiny as a librarian, or can she keep up her whirlwind Parisian existence?

Auschwitz

Posted by Notcot on Jul 14, 2012 in Cult Film
Auschwitz

‘Thank god…that occasionally books of the stature of Laurence Rees’ superb “Auschwitz: The Nazis and the ‘Final Solution'” are published that try to redress the balance…fascinating’ – Andrew Roberts “Evening Standard”. In his highly acclaimed bestseller “Auschwitz” author and broadcaster Laurence Rees tells the definitive history of the most notorious Nazi institution of them all. we discover how Auschwitz evolved from a concentration camp for Polish political prisoners into the site of the largest mass murder in history – part death camp part concentration camp where around a million Jews were killed. Rees uses Auschwitz as a window through which to examine the Holocaust in its broader context.He argues that far from being an aberration the camp was a uniquely important institution in the Nazi state one that played a vital role in the ‘Final Solution’. “Auschwitz” examines the mentality and motivations of the key Nazi decision makers and perpetrators of appalling crimes speak here for the first time about their actions. Fascinating and disturbing facts have been uncovered – from the operation of a brothel to the corruption that was rife throughout the camp.The book draws on intriguing new documentary material from recently opened Russian archives which will challenge many previously accepted arguments. Auschwitz lay at the hub of a complex system of extermination that spread throughout Nazi Europe. Rees addresses uncomfortable questions such as why so few countries under Nazi occupation protected their Jews and why the Allies did little directly to prevent the killing even after they knew about the existence of the camp.Laurence Rees’ unforgettable account of the notorious Nazi camp is a story of murder brutality courage escape and survival and a powerful study of how a human tragedy of such immense scale could have happened.’Excellent’ – Boyd Tonkin “Independent”. ‘…a key to understanding man’s inhumanity to man’ – Ian Thomson “Guardian”. ‘Well-written…with striking testimonies from bystanders perpetrators and victims…The interviews with SS men and sundry European Fascists are genuinely revealing and must have been exceptionally difficult to negotiate’ – Michael Burleigh “Daily Telegraph”.’Devastating…Rees’ research is impeccable and intrepid…Ultimately he does at the gut level what Hannah Arendt achieved some 40 years ago at the level of philosophy: he forces the reader to shift the Holocaust out of the realm of nightmare or Gothic horror and acknowledge it as something all too human…Scrupulous and honest this book is utterly without illusions’ – David Von Drehle “Washington Post” USA. ‘This magnificent book…exciting and disturbing at the same time’ – Rafael Nunez Florencio “El Mundo” Spain. ‘I believe that Rees’ book will be included in the canon of fundamental works shaping our knowledge about the Holocaust’ – Wladyslaw Bartoszewski former Polish Foreign Minister and one-time inmate of Auschwitz.

The Abominable Dr. Phibes

Posted by Notcot on Jun 12, 2010 in Cult Film

Average Rating: 4.5 / 5 (11 Reviews)

Amazon.co.uk Review
The Abominable Dr Phibes is an unusually beautiful horror classic in which Vincent Price stars as the titular genius who specialises in organ music, theology and concocting bizarre deaths for anyone who wrongs him. Discovering why is half the fun, so for now let’s just say that Phibes is a little mad and very, very angry. Aided by his assistant, the lovely, silent Vulnavia, Phibes begins cutting a gory swathe through London’s medical community, with the dogged Inspector Trout hot on his tail. The film contains many pleasures–exquisite art direction and a dark sense of humour among them–but the real treat is in watching an old pro such as Price at work. Whether he’s playing his organ, staring down a victim or drinking through his neck, Price is at the top of his game. He mixes dark menace with wry comic touches, revealing both Phibes’ maniacal obsession and offhanded confidence in his own genius. Settle in for an evening of elegant gore–and if an attractive, mute deliverywoman comes to the door, whatever you do, don’t answer! –Ali Davis
