It looks at you : the returned gaze of cinema / Wheeler Winston Dixon
Albany: State University of New York Press, 1995.
Call No: 632.53 DIX Author: Dixon, Wheeler W., 1950 Place: Albany Publisher: State University of New York Press PubDate: 1995 PhysDes: xv, 238 p. : ill. ; 24 cm Series: SUNY series in postmodern culture Subject: GAZE IN FILMS; UTOPIA IN FILMS; INTERACTIVE CINEMA; WARHOL, ANDY; BRAKHAGE, STAN; GUY-BLACHE, ALICE; VINYL (US, Andy Warhol, 1965?) Summary: This book is a study of one of the most insidious and pervasive phenomena in the study and reception of cinema: the "returned gaze" from the screen in which the audience is actually surveilled by the film being projected on the screen. Rather than the usual process of watching a film, in those films which return the gaze of the viewer, the film looks at us, confronting our voyeur's embrace of the spectacle it presents. The book cites examples as diverse as Andy Warhol's Vinyl, Laurel and Hardy two-reel comedies, the films of Jean-Marie Straub, Jean-Luc Godard, Roberto Rossellini, and Wesley E. Barry's Creation of The Humanoids. It also discusses the history of the returned gaze in video, pornography, surveillance systems, and the related plastic arts Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 203-226) and index ISBN: 0791423409 (pbk.); 0791423395 LON: 10868713 More info

With contributions from a diverse group of scholars, the chapters analyze issues that include gender, sexuality, disability, class, and race. The contributors pose intriguing questions about the franchise, such as: What do “mutants” really represent? What role do women and people of color play in the narratives? Why does it matter that Professor X is disabled? Why is Mystique often shown naked? What facilitated Wolverine’s rise to prominence? And how do topics regarding identity, trauma, and bioethics, figure in the stories? Exploring issues relevant for a multicultural world and connecting thematic elements from the films to political debates and social struggles, the book seeks to make a thoughtful contribution to the scholarship of popular culture. The X-Men Films will appeal to media scholars and students, as well as to anyone interested in the X-Men series." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9781442265332 Contents: -- acknowledgments -- introduction / Claudia Bucciferro -- part I Utopian and Immersive Experiences -- 1: Mutopia: American Utopianism and the Mutant Superhero / Matt Yockey -- 2: The Immersive Marketing Campaign for X-Men: Days of Future Past / Nicolo Gallio -- part: II Agency and Authority -- 3: Superhuman Authority: Fascism and Bioethics in the X-Men Films / Evan Hayles Gledhill -- 4: Magneto's Dilemma: The Technological Limitations of Mutant Transhumanism / Ron Von Burg and D.
