KOREA Summary: "This book examines the role of the Korean film as a cultural text of Koreans in both the North and the South, and focuses on the conflicting self-identities of a people still strongly committed to their cultural traditions despite political divisions. The book defines the significance of film-making and film-viewing in Korean society. It covers the introduction of motion pictures in Korea inn 1903 ... up to the 1990s. It introduces the works of Korea's major directors, and analyses the Korean film industry in terms of film production, distribution and reception. Based on this historical analysis, the study investigates ideological constructs in seventeen films, eight from North Korea and nine South Korea."

DeMille, 1956); RED RIVER (US, Howard Hawks, 1948) Summary: When we think of the films of the 1950s, we inevitably remember the confident swagger of John Wayne, the suave sophistication of Cary Grant, and the emotional intensity of Marlon Brando. But today's culture critics see in the decade a period when heterosexual/homosexual dualism came to dominate the representation of American masculinity. Masked Men documents how movies of the 1950s represented masculinity as a multiple masquerade. Hollywood depicted the sexual anxieties of the domesticated breadwinner, the repudiation of wartime homoerotic male bonding, the exhibitionism of muscular bodies, the transvestic connotations of boyishness, and the playboy bachelor apartment. These presentations challenged the postwar ideal of the typical American male, that omnipresent and seemingly invisible Man in a Gray Flannel Suit Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. -335) and index; Filmography: p. -322 ISBN: 0253211271 (pa : alk. paper); 0253332974 (cl : alk. paper) LON: 12951206 More info

In this definitive study, Leo Braudy tells the complicated story of the film’s production. He revisits the facts behind the controversy of Kazan’s infamous ‘naming of names’ during the McCarthy communist trials of the 1950s. But above all this is an analysis of the enduring appeal of On the Waterfront: the method inspired acting, the music and cinematography, the use of authentic locations and its powerfully symbolic depiction of post-war American values.

Paula Rabinowitz discusses the ways in which these four media shaped truth-claims and political agency over the decades: in the 1930s about poverty, labor and popular culture during the depression; in the 1960s, about the Vietnam War, racism, work and the counterculture; and in the 1980s, about feminist and gay critiques of gender, history, narrative and cinema...Rabinowitz argues that the gendering ov vision that occurs when narratives conform to conventional genres profoundly affects the relation of documentarian to subject. She goes on to define this gendering of vision in documentary as an ethnographic process. Ultimately, this polemical study challenges the construction of the spectato in psychoanalytic film theory, and articulates a new model for theorizing power relations in culture and history." -- taken from back cover.

IN a series of witty and provcative investigations of American popular culture, Fred Pfeil exposes the contradictions in the construction of what heterosexual masculinity over the last fifteen years. White Guys proves such topics as the rock'n'roll bodies of Bruce Springsteen, Axl Rose, and the late Kurt Cobain; the 'male rampage' films Die Hard and Lethal Weapon and the films of 'sensitive transpormation' that followed in their wake; and the curious yet symptomatic activities of the men's movement whose 'rituals' Pfeil has investigated firsthand.
Pfeil's aim is to reveal the ambiguity and flux in a social category too often assumed to be monolithic and unchanging. White Guys invites its readers to consider the shifts in mainstream masculinity's representation, in relation to the general emergence of postmodern 'tribalisms' and in the context of changes in both contemporary feminism and the global economy." -- BOOK COVER ISBN: 1859849377 : ¦39.95; 1859840329 (pbk.) : ¦12.99 LON: bnc85984937; 11499168 Contents: From Pillar to Postmodern: Race, Class, and Gender in the Male Rampage Film -- The Year of Living Sensitively -- Rock Incorporated: Plugging in to Axl and Bruce -- Soft-Boiled Dicks -- Guerillas in the Mist: Wild Guys and New Age Tribes -- Chips off the Old Block More info
