Films of Alan Parker, 1976-2003

    By

    The offbeat musicals Fame 1980, Pink Floyd The Wall 1982, The Commitments 1991 and Evita 1996...The stylized biopics Midnight Express 1978, Mississippi Burning 1988, The Road to Wellville 1994 and Angela's Ashes 1999...The visceral social dramas Shoot the Moon 1982, Birdy 1984, Come See the Paradise 1990 and The Life of David Gale 2003...The one-of-kind genre films Bugsy Malone 1979 and Angel Heart 1987...These are the films of British director, writer, producer and cartoonist Sir Alan Parker. Among many awards and a knighthood, Parker is the founding director of the Director's Guild of Great Britain, and in 2013 won the honorary British Academy of Film and Television Arts Fellowship Award. Parker is known for his humility as a director and has never considered himself an auteur: "I have total admiration for film crews. They are the true heroes of the filmmaking process, not directors." He has worked alongside producer Alan Marshall, cinematographer Michael Seresin and the late film editor, Gerry Hambling. This book is the first study of his complete body of feature films 1976-2003.
