Books Info:

Popcorn free pdf From Blackboard Jungle to Quadrophenia, from 8 Mile to Abba: the Movie, no one has seriously looked at the strange phenomenon that is the rock 'n' roll movie. Garry Mulholland, critically acclaimed author of This Is Uncool and Fear of Music, turns his focus away from classic records to the best, the worst, the weird and the completely deranged from the world of the rock movie. Part serious critical appreciation, part celebration of B-movie trash, Garry Mulholland's inclusive approach is the key to his success. He is as comfortable deconstructing the likes of Performance, Gimme Shelter or Jubilee as he is celebrating Footloose or Jailhouse Rock. As he writes: ' ...Anyone who rejects the joy that the likes of Grease or Dirty Dancing or Fame have brought to millions of people without even attempting to engage with why such unapologetic trash works can't really be that interested in filmgoers at all.' Popcorn aims to be the first and last word on music in film.
