About this title

Synopsis:

Paul Auster's "Collected Screenplays" brings together the film work of Paul Auster. Paul Auster's novels have earned him the reputation as 'one of America's most spectacularly inventive writers'. He has also brought this sense of invention to the art of screenwriting, producing "Smoke", "Blue in the Face", "Lulu on the Bridge" and "The Inner Life of Martin Frost". "Smoke" tells the story of a novelist, a cigar store manager, and a black teenager who unexpectedly cross paths and end up changing each other's lives in indelible ways. Set in contemporary Brooklyn, "Smoke" directly inspired "Blue in the Face", a largely improvised comedy shot in a total of six days. "Lulu on the Bridge" is both a thriller and a fairy tale: when jazz musician Izzy Maurer is accidentally hit by a bullet during a performance in a New York club, he is led on a journey into the strange and sometimes frightening labyrinth of his soul. "The Inner Life of Martin Frost" follows the mysterious and unsettling experiences that befall writer Martin Frost when he borrows a friend's country house and sets out to write a story about elusive and impossible love. The volume also contains production notes, as well as interviews with Paul Auster about his work in film.
