    Dangerous Rhythm ePUB ↠ Ð ePUB blackswanteacouk dangerous pdf, rhythm download, Dangerous Rhythm PDFEPUBA very disappointing book coming after 2 books by Barrios that I liked uite a bit This one is a mess from beginning to end Occasionally he makes an interesting observation about musicals especially ones of the 20s and 30s but there are three huge problems 1 There is no strong thesis except for that given in the subtitle and I don't think he succeeds in proving that they DO matter I firmly believe they do but not because of anything in this book; 2 The structure is thematic music actors material race and sex rather than chronological or by movie so there is a LOT of repetition he tells us how great Wizard of Oz is and how terrible Paint Your Wagon is in almost every chapter; 3 There are virtually no plot summaries or even descriptions of production numbers or sets he is assuming an audience who has seen every movie he has Two sections of the book are interesting one on the largely unseen Porgy and Bess and mentions of recent productions such as Were the World Mine and t

    Dangerous Rhythm ePUB ↠ Ð ePUB blackswanteacouk dangerous pdf, rhythm download, Dangerous Rhythm PDFEPUBDangerous Rhythm is an extremely enjoyable book It is the euivalent of listening to an interesting person talk about a subject he is passionate and well informed aboutThe book covers the movie musical from the Twenties to Les Miserables but instead of taking a chronological approach Barrios looks at key themes the role of a director Broadway to Hollywood adaptations flops the best musicals animated musicals and the impact of TV on the musical This last was a topic I hadn't even seen anyone consider in earlier booksApart from a vague sense that Barrios either doesn't like Gene Kelly or thinks publiccritical opinion has turned decisively against Kelly I found Dangerous Rhythm a true delight to read If you are interested in movie musicals this book will be a delight both to the novice and the long time fan

    Dangerous Rhythm ePUB ↠ Ð ePUB blackswanteacouk dangerous pdf, rhythm download, Dangerous Rhythm PDFEPUBTo begin with I'll say that Barrios is obviously knowledgeable and passionate with definite opinions when it comes to movie musicals The good thing about a book like this is that it introduce me to many movies that I'd never heard of so it will fun to track them down The problem I had with Dangerous Rhythm is that for the first half of the book Barrios is so negative in his opinions about musicals that it's hard to believe he likes them I kept wondering what his criteria for excellence were and it seems the only one is if it works it's good; if it doesn't it's not The second half gives a much clearer idea as to what he looks for in a movie musical A minor uibble He never really gives his reasons as to why movie mu

    Dangerous Rhythm ePUB ↠ Ð ePUB blackswanteacouk dangerous pdf, rhythm download, Dangerous Rhythm PDFEPUBI think I would have enjoyed this if it had been lesssnooty I understand that the author has a vast amount of knowledge about musicals but the negative overtone of most of the chapters and the biting way so many musicals that I love were dissed made this one hard to read I had the feeling that the author felt his opinion of every film discussed was obviously everyone's opinion and

    Dangerous Rhythm ePUB ↠ Ð ePUB blackswanteacouk dangerous pdf, rhythm download, Dangerous Rhythm PDFEPUBFor a book written by a man who is known for writing such in depth pieces about musicals much of Dangerous Rhythm sounds like an attack on almost every musical ever put on film Sure he heaps major amounts of praise on the expected classics but most of the comments skew towards deriding most of the genre's output That said it does include a lot of information and it does pose a valid point about the cookie cutter factory style look and feel of a

    Dangerous Rhythm ePUB ↠ Ð ePUB blackswanteacouk dangerous pdf, rhythm download, Dangerous Rhythm PDFEPUBFor those of us who love movie musicals the sad reality is that most of them aren't very good a few are sublime and the rest have their moments Richard Barrios does an excellent job of explaining why some musicals work so well and others flop Each chapter looks at how different aspects of musicals have evolved through movie history including stars budgets adaptation styles the animated musical and the role of race and sexuality This book is undoubtedly written for movie buffs who have seen a large number of the films described It's also the product of strong research but is thankfully jargon free and very accessible to a non academic audience
