Grindhouse nostalgia : memory, home video and exploitation film fandom / David Church

USA; FANS Summary: "Too often dismissed as nothing more than 'trash cinema', exploitation films have become both earnestly appreciated cult objects and home video items that are more accessible than ever. In this wide-ranging new study, David Church explores how the history of drive-in theatres and urban grind houses has descended to the home video formats that keep these lurid movies fondly alive today. Arguing for the importance of cultural memory in contemporary fan practices, Church focuses on both the re-release of archival exploitation films on DVD and the recent cycle of 'retrosploitation' films like Grindhouse, Machete, Viva, The Devil's Rejects, and Black Dynamite. At a time when older ideas of subcultural belonging have become increasingly subject to nostalgia, Grindhouse Nostalgia presents an indispensable study of exploitation cinema's continuing allure, and is a bold contribution to our understanding of fandom, taste politics, film distribution, and home video." - TAKEN FROM BACK OF THE BOOK Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 97800748699100 Donation: Senses of Cinema Contents: Machine generated contents note: 1.A Drive-in Theatre of the Mind: Nostalgic Populism and the Declasse Video Object -- 2.42nd Street Forever?

It identifies a number of dominant themes, explains major theories, concepts and methodologies, and explores the diversity of approaches that have helped shape the international study of stars and stardom. Comparing the stars and star systems of Hollywood, Bollywood, China and many European countries, from the early-twentieth to the first decade of the twenty-first century, Martin Shingler considers the multiple functions of stars: as an elite workforce within the film industry, as actors and performers, as role models and cultural representatives, as icons and images, as transnational and national symbols, and as commodities. The scope of star studies is wide, historically and geographically, but this book helpfully focuses on salient features of the discipline, providing a cogent overview of star studies, while suggesting some useful avenues for further research. Published in the BFI Film Stars series, Star Studies provides an essential theoretical and historical companion to the individual star volumes in the series Notes: "A BFI book." -- Includes bibliographical references (p. 186-219) and index ISBN: 9781844574902 Contents: Machine generated contents note: 1.Star Studies: Mapping Out the Field of Star Scholarship Within Film Studies -- 2.Methods: Ways of Analysing Screen Performance -- 3.Star Quality: In Search of the Prerequisites For Stardom -- 4.Star Systems: The Mechanics of Star Production -- 5.Star Identities: From Image to Persona and Publicity to Gossip -- 6.Unstable Symbols: On the Representativeness of Film Star More info
