Attack of the leading ladies : gender, sexuality, and spectatorship in classic horror cinema / Rhona J. Berenstein

At the center of the industry's first cycle of horror films was the terrified woman. Eyes straining and mouth open wide as she emitted an ear-piercing scream, the damsel in distress awaited rescue from the monster's horrible attentions. Or so it semmed.
The first book to explore the gender dynamics of classic horror film, 'Attack of the leading ladies' addresses the roles of women both on- and off-screen. Combining close textual analysis with the study of advertising campaigns, reviews, fan magazines and censorship materials, Rhona J. Berenstein presents an in-depth look at such films as 'Bride of Frankenstein', 'Dr. X', 'Dracula', 'King Kong', 'Mad Love', 'Svengali', and 'White Zombie'."-- BOOK COVER Notes: Filmography: p. -246; Includes bibliographical references (p. -258) and index ISBN: 0231084633 (pbk. : alk. paper); 0231084625 (cloth : alk. paper) LON: 11723761 Contents: Introduction: horror of classic horrors -- Spectatorship-as-drag: re-dressing classic horror cinema -- Horror for sale: the marketing and reception of classic horror cinema -- Looks could kill: the powers of the gaze in hypnosis films -- The interpretation of screams: female fear, homosocial desire, and mad-doctor movies -- White skin, white masks: Race, gender, and monstrosity in jungle-horror cinema More info

Newly revised and expanded to take the latest developments into account, Cinema in the Digital Age examines the fate of cinema in the wake of the digital revolution. Nicholas Rombes considers Festen (1998), The Blair Witch Project (1999), Timecode (2000), Russian Ark (2002), and The Ring (2002), among others. Haunted by their analogue pasts, these films are interested not in digital purity but rather in imperfection and mistakes-blurry or pixilated images, shaky camera work, and other elements that remind viewers of the human behind the camera.With a new introduction and new material, this updated edition takes a fresh look at the historical and contemporary state of digital cinema. It pays special attention to the ways in which nostalgia for the look and feel of analogue disrupts the aesthetics of the digital image, as well as how recent films such as The Social Network (2010) and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)-both shot digitally-have disguised and erased their digital foundations. The book also explores new possibilities for writing about and theorizing film, such as randomization. Notes: Includes bibliographical references.

Series: Forerunners: Ideas First Subject: DERRIDA, JACQUES; SPECTATORSHIP; PHILOSOPHY AND THE CINEMA Summary: "Cinema without Reflection traces an implicit film theory in Jacques Derrida's oeuvre, especially in his frequent invocation of the myth of Echo and Narcissus. Derrida's reflections on the economies of image and sound that reverberate in this story, along with the spectral dialectics of love, mirrors, and poiesis, serve as the basis for a theory of cinema that Derrida perhaps secretly imagined. Following Derrida's interventions on Echo and Narcissus across his thought on the visual arts, Akira Mizuta Lippit seeks to return to a theory of cinema adrift in Derrida's philosophy."

Tauris PubDate: 2002 PhysDes: 273 p. : 24 cm Series: Cinema and Society Subject: THEORY; SPECTATORSHIP; AUDIENCE RECEPTION; AUDIENCES; CULTURE AND THE CINEMA; KUHN, ANNETTE Summary: An Everyday Magic: Cinema and Cultural Memory explores cinemagoing and cinema culture in the 1930s, when ‘going to the pictures’ was everybody’s favourite spare-time activity. From the familiar and magical surroundings of the picture houses themselves to the action and romance on the screen, Annette Kuhn draws on extensive interviews with picturegoers, research in cultural history, and readings of popular films of the day to discover how cinema brought a special magic to the daily lives of a generation of young men and women growing up in an austere climate of making-do. And from Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald to Fred and Ginger, she shows how audiences looked to their screen heroines and heroes for inspiration, and at the importance of cinemagoing in make-believe, play, friendship and growing up. This fascinating book throws new light on such issues as cinema spectatorship, childhood, adolescence, ageing and film reception, and provides a major contribution to understandings of both the role of cinema in its heyday and the nature of popular memory.

Pippin reveals how films can illuminate, in a concrete manner, core features of shared human life. Filmed Thought examines questions of morality in Almodovar's Talk to Her, goodness and naivete in Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt, love and fantasy in Sirk's All That Heaven Allows, politics and society in Polanski's Chinatown and Malick's The Thin Red Line, and self-understanding and understanding others in Nicholas Ray's In A Lonely Place and in the Dardenne brothers' oeuvre. In each reading, Pippin pays close attention to what makes these films exceptional as technical works of art (with an eye to cinematic irony) and as intellectual and philosophical achievements. Throughout, he shows how films offer a view of basic problems of human agency from the inside and allow viewers to think with and through them. Captivating and insightful, Filmed Thought shows us what it means to take cinema seriously not just as art, but as thought, and how this medium provides a singular form of reflection on what it is to be human." - taken from back cover.

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

Making sense of cinema : empirical studies into film spectators and spectatorship / edited by Carrielynn D. Reinhard and Christopher J. Olson
New York: Bloomsbury Academic, 2017.
Available at ProQuest (RMIT login required) Call No: 412.3 MAK Author: Reinhard, Carrielynn; Olson, Christopher J. Edition: 2016 Place: New York Publisher: Bloomsbury Academic PubDate: 2017 PhysDes: xvi, 298 pages ; illustrated ; 23 cm Subject: SPECTATORSHIP; AUDIENCE RESEARCH Summary: There are a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches to researching how film spectators make sense of film texts, from the film text itself, the psychological traits and sociocultural group memberships of the viewer, or even the location and surroundings of the viewer. However, we can only understand the agency of film spectators in situations of film spectatorship by studying actual spectators' interactions with specific film texts in specific contexts of engagement.
Making Sense of Cinema: Empirical Studies into Film Spectators and Spectatorship uses a number of empirical approaches (ethnography, focus groups, interviews, historical, qualitative experiment and physiological experiment) to consider how the film spectator makes sense of the text itself or the ways in which the text fits into his or her everyday life. With case studies ranging from preoccupations of queer and ageing men in Spanish and French cinema and comparative eye-tracking studies based on the two completely different soundscapes of Monsters Inc. and Saving Private Ryan to cult fanbase of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and attachment theory to its fictional characters, Making Sense of Cinema aligns this subset of film studies with the larger fields of media reception studies, allowing for dialogue with the broader audience and reception studies field. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9781501320217 Contents: List of Figures -- List of Tables -- List of Contributors -- Acknowledgments -- Chapter 1: Introduction: Empirical approaches to film spectators and spectatorship / CarrieLynn D.

Media in mind / David Reynolds
Oxford: Oxford University Press,

In Media in Mind, author Daniel Reynolds draws upon naturalist philosophies of the mind from John Dewey through contemporary theories of embodied and extended cognition to make the case that the lines separating media from the minds of their users are not blurry or variable so much as they never existed to begin with.
Through analyses of films and video games from 1900 to the present, Media in Mind shows how media forms and technologies challenge dominant models of perception and mental representation, and how they complicate theoretical understanding of concepts like the platform and the interface. In order to do justice to the profound and literally mind-changing power of media, Reynolds argues, we need to think not so much about the relationship between media and the mind as about the roles that media play in our minds. Through this crucial distinction, Media in Mind surveys more than a century of media theory to illustrate the ways that scholars of film and digital media have situated and reconsidered a series of divisions between media, user, and world, and how these these conceptual divisions have reflected and inflected their ways of understanding the mind. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9780190872526 Contents: Introduction: The Discontinuities -- 1.

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.

The reality of illusion : an ecological approach to cognitive film theory / Anderson, Joseph D.

Source: Adrian Miles Place: United States Publisher: Southern Illinois University Press PubDate:  PhysDes: xiv, 200 p. : ill. ; 23 cm Subject: PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF FILMS; SPECTATORSHIP Summary: Anderson's primary argument is that motion picture viewers mentally process the projected images and sounds of a movie according to the same perceptual rules used in response to visual and aural stimuli in the world outside the theater. To process everyday events in the world, the human mind is equipped with capacities developed through millions of years of evolution. In this context, Anderson builds a metatheory influenced by the writings of J. J. and Eleanor Gibson and employs it to explore motion picture comprehension as a subset of general human comprehension and perception, focusing his ecological approach to film on the analysis of cinema's true substance: illusion.
Anderson investigates how viewers, with their mental capacities designed for survival, respond to particular aspects of filmic structure - continuity, diegesis, character development, and narrative - and examines the ways in which rules of visual and aural processing are recognized and exploited by filmmakers. He uses Orson Welles's Citizen Kane to disassemble and redefine the contemporary concept of character identification; he addresses continuity in a shot-by-shot analysis of images from Casablanca; and he uses a wide range of research studies, such as Harry F. Harlow's work with infant rhesus monkeys, to describe how motion pictures become a substitute or surrogate reality for an audience. By examining the human capacity for play and the inherent potential for illusion, Anderson considers the reasons viewers find movies so enthralling, so emotionally powerful, and so remarkably real.

Videocracy : how YouTube is changing the world... with double rainbows, singing foxes, and other trends we can't stop watching / Kevin Allocca
London: Bloomsbury Publishing, 2018.
Call No: 408 ALL Author: Allocca, Kevin Place: London Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing PubDate: 2018 PhysDes: xv, 335 pages : illustrations ; 22 cm. Subject: YOUTUBE; ONLINE VIDEO PROGRAMMING; SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE CINEMA; SPECTATORSHIP; INTERNET Summary: From YouTube's Head of Culture and Trends, a rousing and illuminating behind-the-scenes exploration of internet video's massive impact on our world. Whether your favorite YouTube video is a cat on a Roomba, Gangnam Style, the Bed Intruder song, an ASAPscience explainer, Rebecca Black's Friday, or the Evolution of Dance, Kevin Allocca's Videocracy reveals how these beloved videos and famous trends--and many more--came to be and why they mean more than you might think. YouTube is the biggest pool of cultural data since the beginning of recorded communication, with four hundred hours of video uploaded every minute. (It would take you more than sixty-five years just to watch to watch the vlogs, music videos, tutorials, and other content posted in a single day!) This activity reflects who we are, in all our glory and ignominy. As Allocca says, if aliens wanted to understand our planet, he'd give them Google. If they wanted to understand us, he'd give them YouTube. In Videocracy, Allocca lays bare what YouTube videos say about our society and how our actions online--watching, sharing, commenting on, and remixing the people and clips that captivate us--are changing the face of entertainment, advertising, politics, and more. Via YouTube, we are fueling social movements, enforcing human rights, and redefining art--a lot more than you'd expect from a bunch of viral clips.

Watching television : hermeneutics, reception and popular culture / Tony Wilson

Call No: 611 WIL Author: Wilson, Tony Source: UK Place: Cambridge, UK Publisher: Polity Press PubDate: 1993 PhysDes: ix, 230 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm Subject: TELEVISION; SPECTATORSHIP Summary: "This book offers an original and sophisticated analysis of some of the issues raised by the reception of television programmes. Wilson uses concepts drawn from the philosophical traditions of hermeneutics and phenomenology - concepts such as horizon, identification as play and life-world - to explore the interaction between programmes and viewers. The result is not only a systematic theoretical account of watching television, but also a set of practical guidelines for the analysis of programmes and contexts of reception." - taken from back cover.
