THE EXTRA TERRESTRIAL (US, Steven Spielberg, 1982); FATAL ATTRACTION (US, Adrian Lyne, 1987); AIRPLANE (US, Jim Abrahams & David Zucker & Jerry Zucker, 1980); TERMS OF ENDEARMENT (US, James L. Brooks, 1983) Summary: What do ET, Fatal Attraction and Look Whos Talking have in common? . As well as being amongst the most popular films at the UK box office of recent years all three represent dysfunctional families, families which profoundly transgressed contemporary ideological norms. The eighties were a decade in which the family occupied a pivotal position in an increasinglingly complex social and moral universe and film itself enjoyed a resurgence. Sarah Harwood argues that Hollywood cinema engaged with debates over the' crisis in the family' in intense and complex ways, both feeding and resisting dominant social mythologies In a fascinating analysis of films as diverse as 'Aiplane!' and 'Terms of Endearment' Family Fictions maps the functions, paradoxes and pleasures of familial representations in recent times. These startling analyses shed light on power and gender relations in contemporary cinema as well as on how the films themselves engaged with their broader cultural contexts Notes: Filmography : p. 248-252; Bibliography : p. 253-258; Includes index ISBN: 0333648439 (hbk); 0333648447 (pbk) More info

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
