    FREE DOWNLOAD Û Dangerous Rhythm Dangerous RhythmNot satisfied with just writing about the birth of musical films A Song in the Dark 1995 Richard Barrios looks at the importance of movie musicals of all types via a kaleidoscope of lenses In twelve short chapters an introduction and epilogue he discusses the past and future of movie musicals the origination of the concept of the musical who have been the stars the role of music versus plot etc not neglecting animated musicals and television musicalsThe book and the chapter titles all come from song titles or lyrics sung in a movie musical which is an example of how Barrios infuses a uirky viewpoint into this series of essays He also provides

    FREE DOWNLOAD Û Dangerous Rhythm Dangerous RhythmA 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 rec

    FREE DOWNLOAD Û Dangerous Rhythm Dangerous RhythmDangerous 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

    FREE DOWNLOAD Û Dangerous Rhythm Dangerous RhythmTo 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 musicals matter But that's

    FREE DOWNLOAD Û Dangerous Rhythm Dangerous RhythmFor 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 lot of old school musicals Barrios also does a fantastic job of firmly placing the classics within the period they were created in and setting up a link between their success or failure and the state of the world at the time It definitely gives one a lot to think about but I would have liked it a bit if it didn't skew so much towards giving reasons why musicals are so often seen as bad films

    FREE DOWNLOAD Û Dangerous Rhythm Dangerous RhythmDon't go into this book expecting a clear explanation of the subtitle or even a clear explanation of anything I think this book is what it might be like to hang out with Richard Barrios for a couple of hours over coffee listening to him expound on one hundred years of movie musicals He's totally biased but he's so smart and witty that I can forgive him for taking jabs at my faves Judy Garland and Gene Kelly as the cover image implies Barrios is an Astaire loyalist all the way It took a while to get used to Barrios's freewheeling style but after a chapter or two I was hooked A must read for any serious movie musical nerd
