Mooresy: The Fighter's Fighter is the life story of one of Britain's most-loved boxers. Not always an angelic teen and a product of the 'Salford Overspill', Jamie Moore was sucked into the slipstream of the thrill which came with car theft. At 15, his luck ran out after a helicopter police chase. Boxing turned out to be his saviour. Progressing through the amateur ranks, he turned pro in 1999 aged 20 and went on to become British, Irish, Commonwealth and European light middleweight champion. Known by many as 'Britain's most exciting fighter' Moore engaged in some epic battles, and was one half of boxing's Fight of the Year three times within a five-year period. Four shoulder operations and three brain scans prompted him to quit in 2010. He was snapped up by Sky Sports and started training his own stable of champions. Life was good. That life was almost permanently taken away from him in August 2014, after being shot at five times in Marbella. Despite having a bullet lodged in his right hip and constant pain to his left leg as a result of another bullet passing straight through his thigh, Moore does not dwell on his brush with death. His serene acceptance of life is inspirational as he remains a husband, proud father, former champion, trainer - and occasional actor.

The Cinema of Akira Kurosawa

Author: Stephen Prince

The Japanese film director Akira Kurosawa, who died at the age of 88, has been internationally acclaimed as a giant of world cinema. Rashomon, which won both the Venice Film Festival's grand prize and an Academy Award for best foreign-language film, helped ignite Western interest in the Japanese cinema. Seven Samurai and Yojimbo remain enormously popular both in Japan and abroad. In this newly revised and expanded edition of his study of Kurosawa's films, Stephen Prince provides two new chapters that examine Kurosawa's remaining films, placing him in the context of cinema history. Prince also discusses how Kurosawa furnished a template for some well-known Hollywood directors, including Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and George Lucas. Providing a new and comprehensive look at this master filmmaker, The Warrior's Camera probes the complex visual structure of Kurosawa's work. The book shows how Kurosawa attempted to symbolize on film a course of national development for post-war Japan, and it traces the ways that he tied his social visions to a dynamic system of visual and narrative forms. The author analyzes Kurosawa's entire career and places the films in context by drawing on the director's autobiography--a fascinating work that presents Kurosawa as a Kurosawa character and the story of his life as the kind of spiritual odyssey witnessed so often in his films. After examining the development of Kurosawa's visual style in his early work, The Warrior's Camera explains how he used this style in subsequent films to forge a politically committed model of filmmaking. It then demonstrates how the collapse of Kurosawa's efforts to participate as a filmmaker in the tasks of social reconstruction led to the very different cinematic style evident in his most recent films, works of pessimism that view the world as resistant to change.

A first-hand account that gives special attention to the author's experience among pre-dominantly non-Jewish partisans in Soviet Russia, where he confronted anti-Semitism while facing a common enemy.

In lean and concise prose, Zissman relives the German invasion of Poland and his own incarceration in a forced labor camp. He recalls life in the Derechin ghetto, where every day brought brutal Nazi persecution and the constant threat of slaughter. Finally, he tells of escape to Russia, where he fought alongside Soviet partisans - only to face prejudice from his comrades. In the tradition of Elie Wiesel and Primo Levi, Zissman probes the Nazi impact on Jewish notions of identity and community during and after the Holocaust. volatility of life as a Jew among non-Jewish Soviet partisans, even while battling a common enemy.
