This book is elegantly designed and packed with evocative film stills, location info and maps. It is affordable and collectable. It includes scene specific reviews and short essays about directors, themes and locations covering everything from sporting dramas to representations of outlaw Ned Kelly. It presents a diverse mix of contributors including film reviewers, University lecturers, journalists and film-makers. Tracing cinematic depictions of life in Melbourne from the Victorian era to the present day, "World Film Locations: Melbourne" serves as an illuminating and visually rich guide to films set wholly or partially in one of Australia's most diverse and culturally important cities. In a series of short analyses of iconic scenes and longer essays focusing on key directors, recurring themes, and notable locations, the contributors examine the city's relationship to cinema from a variety of angles. Covering everything from sporting dramas to representations of the outlaw Ned Kelly to the coming-of-age films of the 1980s and beyond, this accessible trip around the birthplace of Australian cinema validates Melbourne's reputation as a creative hotbed and reveals the true significance of the films and filmmakers associated with the city. Illustrated throughout with full-colour film stills and photographs of the locations as they are now, "World Film Locations: Melbourne" also contains city maps for those wishing to explore Melbourne's cinematic streets with this volume's expert guidance.
