Prague, the "Hollywood of the East," has played an important role in the history of cinema, and World Film Locations: Prague traverses the city's topography to examine an internationally diverse range of movies made in the Czech capital: landmark early films such as Ecstasy, controversial due to the nudity that catapulted Hedy Lamarr into stardom in the United States; Steven Soderbergh's biopic Kafka, starring Jeremy Irons; adaptations of Kafka's literary works such as The Trial, with a screenplay by Harold Pinter and starring Anthony Hopkins; and action blockbusters like Mission Impossible, The Bourne Identity, and Casino Royale. Exploring legendary Prague landmarks as they appear on-screen - including the Charles Bridge, Old Town, Mala Strana, Liechtenstein Palace, Wenceslas Square, and Prague Castle - the book also discusses the intersection of the capital city and its cinematic representations; Prague and the Czech New Wave; the iconic Barrandov Studios; and the impact of political events such as the Prague Spring, the Soviet Invasion of 1968, and the Velvet Revolution on the city's film industry. An invaluable resource for scholars, students, and aficionados of film and cinematic psychogeography, this collection will be heralded by students of Eastern European literary, cultural, and sociopolitical history.
