Romantic movies—no matter how fluffy or fanciful—contain some kernel of truth about real-life love. These films are fictionalized accounts of the collective romantic experiences of everyone involved in the filmmaking process, so even average movies can provide spectacular insights for every stage of romance from first dates to wedding planning. No one knows this better than Leslie C. Halpern, a respected entertainment journalist who was a stringer for The Hollywood Reporter for 13 years and has contributed to Variety, the Orlando Sentinel, Markee, and many other publications. She is also the author of Reel Romance: The Lovers’ Guide to the 100 Best Date Movies, which earned her a reputation as an expert on the subject of romantic movies, and Dreams on Film, which is used on college campuses around the world. Her book Passionate About TheirWork: 151 Celebrities, Artists and Experts on Creativity was named one of MyShelf.com’s Top Ten Reads for 2010. Now in her new book, 200 LOVE LESSONS FROM THE MOVIES, Leslie C. Halpern helps make our favorite movies even more enjoyable by showing us the nugget of relationship wisdom in them. Whether the movie features an unforgettable date (My Date with Drew), odd first meetings (Wimbledon), or a particularly stormy breakup (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), Halpern steers the reader toward a valuable lesson to be learned, for example: 45. Don't Let Anger Obscure The Thoughtfulness of a Gift. 46. If You Broke It, Lost It, or Damaged It, then Replace It. 47. Make Sure You Really Want to Say Good-Bye When You Give a Good-Bye Gift. 48. Words May Deceive, but Facial Expressions Don't Lie. Reel Romance made Leslie Halpern a popular speaker at film festivals, book clubs, bookstores and campuses, and she has appeared in signings around the country, in addition to American television, Canadian television, radio, and print. 200 LOVELESSONS FROM THE MOVIES is sure to attract an equally large and enthusiastic movie-loving audience.

The aim is to provide models who read this book with professional advice, training and helpful hints that are more advanced by far than any other book currently available on the Modeling Profession. The Model Bible will teach you what it really takes to sign with a major agency and help guide you into becoming a professional model within the Modeling Industry. The book will teach you how to conduct yourself in a professional manner at all times and give you the strength to convey confidence in everything you set out to accomplish, not only in dealing with the fashion industry but also on a personal level, including the way you dress and communicate, not forgetting how to have fun while doing it! You will learn how to master self-control in very high-pressure situations and how to control your emotions regardless of the pressure you’re under. Preparation is the key to your success and this book is going to prepare you like no other. After reading it you will also be able to project yourself into being the best you can be in all the various areas of your life. You will also learn how to listen and learn and not to complain or pout, but to be polite, sophisticated and someone who carries themselves with elegance and grace at all times. This book will show you that the modeling industry is a very complex and competitive business and that if you plan on succeeding, you must have a passion and a desire to never give up. You will learn the importance of selling yourself and standing out at an audition or a Go-See in order to have the best opportunity of landing the job. Bottom line is that to survive in this business you’re going to need to know how to be thick-skinned and be able to handle rejection as well as praise, and this book is the tool that’s going to help you do it. Learning how to pose and how to be absolutely fluent and natural in front of all sorts of different types of cameras is an important aspect of modeling, as is speaking in front of the camera, not to mention being completely at home on the runway or catwalk. It’s also essential not to appear shy at castings and bookings – a friendly, personable manner will get you places. Models have to remember to look someone in the eye when they are speaking or listening to them, and to NOT WEAR SHADES INDOORS OR DURING INTERVIEWS! It’s frank advice like this that sets the Model Bible apart from other guides to modeling; that and all the details of how to prepare to get into a Model Agency by compiling an up to date professional Portfolio/ Look Book that showcases the different looks a model can offer and all the work she has done. Being ready to go on a casting or booking at the last minute, as well as being gracious about whatever clothing or hair or makeup is provided at the booking, is another mark of a professional model. In addition, enough emphasis cannot be put on sticking to an exercise regime that ensures that they have a healthy, toned body. On the other hand, models have to realize that it’s not just about being pretty or about having a perfect body. My cousin who is a designer once told me “Making it as a model isn’t about being pretty, it’s about being unique”. I couldn’t agree more. I would even add to it: IT’S ABOUT BEING UNIQUE AND STAYING POSITIVE AND HAVING A GREAT ATTITUDE. The Model Bible will help you capitalize on your uniqueness, find the type of modeling that makes the most of your attributes and suits you best, and surround yourself with the experts who will help you succeed in what is a very exciting, if demanding business. The only thing that never goes out of fashion is loving it. Rich Celenza

Films with dream sequences, or a dreamlike quality, allow directors to create their own rules of logic and nature to meet a variety of artistic needs. For instance, an opening dream immediately establishes what a character is feeling; a later dream--or series of them--provides viewers with a glimpse of the climax, and a concluding dream ties up loose ends. (In real life, of course, dreams do not occur at such convenient times or serve such useful purposes.) This book explores why science is lost or distorted in the process of representing dreams on film and why audiences prefer this figurative truth of art over the literal truth of science. Part One discusses changes in form and considers the history of dream theory. Additionally, the physiology of sleeping and dreaming, dream structure, sleep deprivation, dreams under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and waking up, as depicted on film, are examined. Part Two investigates changes in content, and delves into the psychology of sleeping and dreaming, dream interpretation, altered states of consciousness, visions and prophecies, dreams as wish fulfillment, sex and death, nightmares, and reality versus illusion. The author uses theories by Freud, Jung, and current experts in her analyses of dream sequences and their use in film.
