ECHO AND NARCISSUS : WOMEN'S VOICES IN C

By: AMY LAWRENCE

Price: $8.00

Publisher: UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA PRES:

Seller ID: IM175803


Do women in classical Hollywood cinema ever truly speak for themselves? In "Echo and Narcissus," Amy Lawrence examines eight classic films to show how women's speech is repeatedly constructed as a "problem," an affront to male authority. This book expands feminist studies of the representation of women in film, enabling us to see individual films in new ways, and to ask new questions of other films. Using "Sadie Thompson" (1928), "Blackmail" (1929), "Rain" (1932), "T... View more info

WINDOW SHOPPING

By: ANNE FRIEDBERG

Price: $12.00

Publisher: UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA PRES:

Seller ID: IM175919


Departing from those who define postmodernism in film merely as a visual style or set of narrative conventions, Anne Friedberg develops the first sustained account of the cinema's role in postmodern culture. She explores the ways in which nineteenth-century visual experiences--photography, urban strolling, panorama and diorama entertainments--anticipate contemporary pleasures provided by cinema, video, shopping malls, and emerging "virtual reality" technologies.

Indelible Shadows investigates some of the profound questions raised by any attempt to create a film based on the Holocaust. How does one make a movie that is both morally just and marketable?

AUTONOMOUS IMAGE : CINEMATIC NARRATION A

By: ARMANDO JOSE PRATS

Price: $12.00

Publisher: UNIVERSITY PRESS OF KENTUCKY:

Seller ID: IM283791


" Blowup, says Armando Prats, is one of the necessary movies. It is a "living expression of the transition into the new narrative domains" in terms of man's "new vision of himself as a narrative creature in a world whose very essense is cinematic narration." Prats' work on the new humanism inherent in postwar filmmaking is a rewarding work with implications for the fields of esthetics and axiology as well as film criticism. In his analyses of four films by three direc... View more info

REELPOLITIK

By: BEVERLY MERR KELLEY

Price: $6.00

Publisher: GREENWOOD PUBLISHING GROUP INC:

Seller ID: IM59473


The movies that document American history during the interwar years still hold relevance today. While we may be put off by the corny sentimentality popular at the time, we feel attracted, despite our 1990s veneer of sophistication, to healthy portions of unadulterated American spirit. Americans resist encumbering themselves with political labels, Kelley asserts, content to remain simultaneously fragmented between elitism and populism, isolationism and interventionism ...
