Cinema ; 26 Subject: THEORY; PSYCHOANALYSIS AND THE CINEMA; SEXUALITY AND THE CINEMA; GENDER AND THE CINEMA Summary: "The Difficulty of Difference argues that serious misreadings of Freud and Lacan on sexual difference have characterized prevailing models of psychoanalytic film criticism. In critiquing theories of identification and female spectatorship, D. N. Rodowick maintains that early film theorists and recent feminist critics are equally guilty of imposing a binary conception of sexual difference on Freud's thought. By embracing such a rigid definition of male/female difference, they fail to understand the fundamentally complex and fluid process of sexual identification as it is articulated in Freud's writing, constructed in film texts, and negotiated by spectators." - taken from back cover Notes: Formerly CIP -- Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 0415903327 Contents: Note on Abbreviations – Preface -- Chapter 1 The Difficulty of Difference -- Chapter 2 The Return of the Exile -- Chapter 3 Reading Freud ...

Femmes Fatales examines Freud, the female spectator, the meaning of the close-up, and the nature of stardom. Duane's analyses of such figures as Pabst's Lulu and Rita Hayworth's Gilda trace the thematics and mechanics of maskes, masquerade, and veiling, with specific attention to the form and technology of the cinema. Working through and against the intellectual frameworks of post-structuralist and psychoanalytic theory, Doane interrogates cinematic and theoretical claims to truth about women which rely on judgements about vision and its stability or instability. Reflecting the shift in conceptual priorities within feminist film theory over the last decade, Femmes Fatales addresses debates over female spectatorhsip, essentialism and anti-essentialism, the tensions between psychoanalysis and history, and the relations between racial and sexual difference. Doane's nuanced and original readings of the femme fatale in cinema demonstrates that confrontations between feminism, film theory and psychoanalysis can be productively destabilizing for each discipline. -- PUBLISHER Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 269-300) and index ISBN: 041590319X; 0415903203 (pbk.)

Call No: 626 [159.964.2] OPR Author: O'Pray, Michael Source: US Place: Houndmills, Basingstoke, Hampshire ; New York Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan PubDate: 2004 PhysDes: xiv, 252 p. ; 23 cm Series: Language, Discourse, Society Subject: AESTHETICS; EXPRESSIONISM; B-MOVIES; PSYCHOANALYSIS AND THE CINEMA; MONTAGE; FORD, JOHN; HITCHCOCK, ALFRED; ROSSELLINI, ROBERTO; ANTONIONI, MICHELANGELO; DREYER, CARL TH. Summary: The critical writings of Adrian Stokes, based on the psychoanalyst Melanie Klein's innovative theories, were enormously influential on visual art and culture during his lifetime, but have rarely been applied to film. In this first major study of Stokes, his ideas and those of the philosopher Richard Wolheim are considered in relation to two central issues in current film theory - film as representation and as expression. Stokes fundamental distinction between carving and modelling which reflects Klein's own division in mental life between paranoid-schizoid and depressive positions is explored in relation to the traditional division in film theory between montage and realism. At the core of this study is the role of the Kleinian notion of phantasy in understanding film as an art form. To this end, the carving and modelling modes are applied to the films of Ford, Hitchcock, Rossellini, Antonioni, Dreyer, Eisenstein and American B movies.

Many scholars have linked the origins of the discipline to late-1960s developments in the academy such as structuralist theory and student protest. Yet this collection reveals the broader material and institutional forces—both inside and outside of the university—that have long shaped the field. Beginning with the first investigations of cinema in the early twentieth century, this volume provides detailed examinations of the varied social, political, and intellectual milieus in which knowledge of cinema has been generated. The contributors explain how multiple instantiations of film study have had a tremendous influence on the methodologies, curricula, modes of publication, and professional organizations that now constitute the university-based discipline. Extending the historical insights into the present, contributors also consider the directions film study might take in changing technological and cultural environments. -- Publisher description Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9780822342892 Contents: The Academy and Motion Pictures / Lee Grieveson, Haidee Wasson

While most psychoanalytic film criticism is highly theoretical, Greenberg writes in a candid, entertaining style that will appeal to cineasts and scholars alike. Beginning with a basic overview of psychoanalytic film criticism, Greenberg directs his focus on characters, motivations, and conflicts in detective, war, science fiction, and horror movies, as well as cult cinema. In "On the McMovie," he probes the hollow, escapist fare that emerged from Hollywood in the 1970s and 1980s and embraced nearly every genre. Greenberg zooms in on the pathological narcissism of heroes in such McMovies as Rambo and Top Gun; Screen Memories concludes by addressing two important films of the late 1980s. Greenberg decries Working Girl as a "Co-opt" film with a seemingly liberal agenda, which nevertheless mocks and subverts the very social advances it appears to affirm. But Enemies: A Love Story - with its humor, manic energy, and theme of renewal in the teeth of death - is seen as evidence of a tentative but hopeful return to quality in Hollywood Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. -268) and index ISBN: 0231072864 (acid-free paper) LON: 92041710; 9733268 More info

Often requiring time and effort to fully grasp it and seeming rather old-fashioned, it can be difficult to approach the subject with enthusiasm and appreciate its relevance to modern day.
Understanding Film Theory aims to disassociate theory from these connotations and bring a fresh, contemporary and accessible approach to the discipline. Now comprehensively updated in a second edition, the book’s sixteen chapters - including a new chapter on Adaptations - continue to provide an insight into the main areas of debate. Taking the application of theory as its central theme, the text incorporates a number of innovative features: ‘Reflect and Respond’ sections encourage readers to engage critically with theoretical concepts, while seminal texts are concisely summarised without oversimplifying key points.
Throughout the book the authors illustrate why theory is important and demonstrate how it can be applied in a meaningful way, with relevant case studies drawn from both classic and contemporary cinema including: Once Upon a Time in the West (1968), Run Lola Run (1998), The Hunger Games (2012), Blue is the Warmest Colour (2013) and The Lego Movie (2014). Additional case studies address key genres (the British Gangster film and the musical), film movements (Dogme 95), individual actors (Ryan Gosling, Judi Dench and Amitabh Bachchan) and directors (Alfred Hitchcock and Guillermo del Toro).
Understanding Film Theory is an approachable and extensive introduction to film theory. It is the ideal entry point for any student studying film, using clear definitions and explaining complex ideas succinctly.

Walker includes sustained analyses of particular films according to a range of theoretical approaches: psychoanalysis, feminism, genre studies, post-colonialism, and queer theory. The films come from disparate temporal and industrial contexts: from Classical Hollywood Gothic melodrama (Rebecca) to contemporary, critically-acclaimed science fiction (Gravity). Along with sound tracks from canonical American films including The Searchers and To Have and Have Not, Walker analyzes independent Australasian films: examples include Heavenly Creatures, a New Zealand film that uses music to empower its queer female protagonists; and Ten Canoes, the first Australian feature film with a script entirely in Aboriginal languages. Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory thus not only calls new attention to the significance of sound tracks, but also focuses on the sonic power of characters representing those whose voices have all too often been drowned out.
Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory is both rigorous and accessible to all students and scholars with a grasp of cinematic and musical structures. Moreover, the book brings together film studies, musicology, history, politics, and culture and therefore resonates across the liberal arts." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references, filmography (page 419) and index; Includes filmography ISBN: 9780199896325 Donation: Oxford University Press Contents: -- acknowledgments -- general introduction -- pt.
