Despite this, this is the first book to examine cinematic representations of the father. Brining Up Daddy offers a broad perspective on the Hollywood dad looking at important Hollywood fathers from World War II to the present and discusses films for a variety of genres. The book looks at films decade by decade and adopts a multi-faceted theoretical approach, making use of psychoanalysis, sociology and masculinity studies and contextualising the father figure within both Hollywood and American history. Key films include Since You Went Away, The Search, Rebel without a Cause, The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit, Cape Fear, Kramer vs Kramer, Die Hard, Three Men and a Baby, Boyz n the Hood and Magnolia. In its treatment of the father this unique study discusses why the father is such a seminal character in so many narratives and what he has come to symbolise and represent.

This book reassesses the classically-inflected action film as a significant cinematic form, often marginalized in media studies, that transcends such reductive labels as camp or kitsch. The focus is on the depiction of heroic masculinity, often characterized as reactionary or fascist, yet far more varied and contradictory, especially in relation to femininity and non-whiteness. These diverse representations of masculinity offer a major contribution to debates on maleness within and beyond academia that has been largely unexplored. In particular, Hercules in his many incarnations is one of the most important mythopoetic figures, on a par with King Arthur, Robin Hood, Tarzan and James Bond, informing popular cultural interpretations of manliness and the exaggerated male form"-- BOOK BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references (pages 177-186) and index ISBN: 9781137384706 Contents: -- Introduction -- Part I: men as men should be 1.

Feminism without women : culture and criticism in a "postfeminist" age / Tania Modleski

By scrutinizing a variety of feminist and poststructuralist theoretical positions and freqently juxtaposing her discussions with analyses of contemporary movies (ranging from Pee-wee's Big Adventure to Lethal Weapon and Three Men and a Baby ), Modleski offers a broad perspective on the future of feminism. In particular, she shows how women as social subjects are once again being relegated to the margins of discourse and society, only now, ironically, they are in danger of being marginalized by feminism itself . Feminism Without Women is a multifaceted response to the shift within feminist theory from "gynocritics" (a woman-centred critical practice) to an increasingly male-oriented "gender studies". This move has been accompanied by feminist/philosophical attempts to abolish the very category of "woman". A large portion of the book is devoted to analyzing the state of "male feminism" and argues that the "new masculinities" being heralded by some feminists are less revolutionary than is often claimed; that these kinder , gentler masculinit are in many ways perfectly consonant with the conservative times. Modleski situates her discussions of criticism and theory in the context of popular culture, and social issues relevant to feminism: surrogate mothering, women and war, the debates over pornography, gay representation in the era of AIDS, the controversy within feminism over lesbian S&M, and the intensification of racism in the 1980s and 1990s. -- PUBLISHER Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 165-182) and index ISBN: 0415904161 : $39.95; 041590417X (pbk) : $13.95 LON: bnb41590416; 7924353 Contents: Part I: Theory and methodology -- 1.

Movies considered range from the slasher film Scream to bromances and beta male comedies such as I Love You, Man to dramas such as Donnie Darko and 25th Hour to Rob Zombie’s remake of the horror film Halloween.

More amazing, all were critical and/or box office successes. What accounts for this explosion of interest? Much of the appeal of these films lies in our nostalgic desire at the end of the millenium for an age of greater politeness and sexual reticence. Austen's ridicule of deceit and pretentiousness also appeals to our fin de siècle sensibilities. The novels were changed, however, to enhance their appeal to a wide popular audience, and the revisions reveal much about our own culture and its values. These recent productions espouse explicitly twentieth-century feminist notions and reshape the Austenian hero to make him conform to modern expectations. Linda Troost and Sayre Greenfield present fourteen essays examining the phenomenon of Jane Austen as cultural icon, providing thoughtful and sympathetic insights on the films through a variety of critical approaches. The contributors debate whether these productions enhance or undercut the subtle feminism that Austen promoted in her novels." - BOOK JACKET Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 186-187) and index ISBN: 0813120845 (alk. paper) LON: 13891695 Contents: Introduction: watching ourselves watching / Linda Troost and Sayre Greenfield -- Out of the drawing room, onto the lawn / Rachel M.

Offering a compelling exploration of the Australian fifties, the book challenges the common belief that the fifties was a 'dead' era for Australian filmmaking. Reel Men engages with fourteen Australian feature films made and released between 1949 and 1962, and examines the multiple masculinities in circulation at this time. Dealing with beloved Australian films like Jedda (1955), Smiley (1956), and The Shiralee (1957), and national icons of the silver screen including Chips Rafferty, Charles 'Bud' Tingwell, and Peter Finch, Reel Men delves into our cultural past to dismantle powerful assumptions about film, the fifties, and masculinity in Australia." -- BOOK BACK COVER Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9780522872477 Contents: -- acknowledgments -- introduction -- 1 the Australian film industry: dead or alive? -- 2 Australian nation, Australian men -- 3 beyond the breadwinner -- 4 assimilation stories -- 5 anything for the family? -- 6 more than mates? -- conclusion -- bibliography -- index -- More info
Scorsese's men : melancholia and the mob

Call No: 81:747.5SCO NIC Author: Mark Nicholls CorpAuthor: Pluto Press Place: Melbourne, Australia Publisher: Pluto Press PubDate: 2004 PhysDes: 24 cm; 191 pp Subject: SCORSESE, MARTIN; AGE OF INNOCENCE, THE (US, Martin Scorsese, 1993); RAGING BULL (US, Martin Scorsese, 1980); TAXI DRIVER (US, Martin Scorsese, 1976); GOODFELLAS (US, Martin Scorsese, 1990); CAPE FEAR (US, Martin Scorsese, 1991); MEN IN FILMS. USA Summary: Martin Scorsese is the most influential director of his generation and, with his work regularly included among the top twenty films of all time, his place in cinema history is indisputable. Scorsese’s films have defined the cinematic essence of each decade since the 1960s and have set the standard of New Hollywood cinema. Join author Mark Nicholls as he traces Martin Scorsese’s central theme of melancholia, nostalgia and loss through five films from the legendary director: The Age of Innocence, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Goodfellas and Cape Fear. Scorsese’s melancholic hero, Nicholls argues, is the Hamlet of Hollywood cinema. His journey is driven by an encounter with a corrupt and conservative mob and by his own overpowering experience of loss. Refusing to renounce that loss, under pressure from the mob, Scorsese’s men construct an elaborate and intriguing fantasy of perverse male desire.

Gathering together thirteen original essays by scholars in the US, UK, and Australia, as well as Steve Neale's ground-breaking article on the male spectacle, this collection looks beyong the seemingly unassailable monolithic understanding of the 'masculine' which has previously dominiated most film criticism.
Ranging from Valentino to Schwarzeneeger, from the musical to the horror film. from close readings to 'queer' readings, the essays all differ in their critical method and historical focus. But whatever their specific interest, each essay holds a strong concern with issues that film studies has repeatedly linked to the feminine without considering how they relate as well to the masculine: spectacle, masochism, passivity, masquerade and, most of all, the body as it signifies gendered, racial, class and generational differences." -- BOOK COVER Notes: Includes bibliographical references and indexes ISBN: 0415077583; 0415077591 (pbk.)

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
