In her film reviews, she dissects the 'mega' filmmakers of our time - Steven Spielberg, Federico Fellini, Akira Kurosawa, Pedro Almodovar, Ken Russell and David Lynch. Definitely not 'one of the boys', Suzanne Moore's attitude to the good and famous is refreshing and irreverent." -Book blurb.

The new avengers : feminism, femininity and the rape-revenge cycle / Jacinda Read
Manchester, UK: Manchester University, 2000.
Call No: 626:396 REA Author: Read, Jacinda Source: UK Place: Manchester, UK Publisher: Manchester University PubDate: 2000 PhysDes: 290 p; 22 cm Series: Inside Popular Film Subject: FEMINISM AND THE CINEMA; FEMINISM AND TV; CRIME IN FILMS; SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY (US, Joesph Ruben, 1991); WESTERNS; SPECTATORSHIP Summary: In this, the first full-length study of the rape-revenge film, Jacinda Read suggests that the rape-revenge cycle can be read as one of the primary ways in which Hollywood has attempted to make sense of feminism and the changing shape of heterosexual femininity in the post-1970 period. Arguing that rape-revenge is better understood not as a genre, but as a narrative structure, the author analyses the ways in which various deployments of this structure rework the ‘mass cultural fictions of femininity’ inscribed in the genres over which they have been mapped.
