Eisenstein, 1925); REALISM ON TV; REALITY "SHOWS"; REALITY TV; RACIAL PROBLEMS ON TV; RACIAL PROBLEMS AND TV; TRUTH IN FILMS; VIOLENCE ON TV; WAR AND THE CINEMA; GULF WAR ON TV; ETHICS AND TV Summary: "Blurred Boundaries explores decisive moments where the traditional boundaries of fiction/non-fiction and truth/falsehood blur. Nichols argues that the history of social representation in film, television, and video requires an understanding of the fate of both contemporary and older work. Traditionally, film history and cultural studies sought to place films in a historical context. Nichols proposes a new goal: to examine how specific works, old and new, promote or suppress a sense of historical consciousness. Examining work from Eisenstein's Strike to the Rodney King videotape, Nichols interrelates issues of formal structure, viewer response, and historical consciousness. Simultaneously, Blurred Boundaries radically alters the interpretative frameworks offered by neoformalism and psychoanalysis: Comprehension itself becomes a social act of transformative understanding rather than an abstract mental process, while the use of psychoanalytic terms like desire, lack, or paranoia to make social points metaphorically yields to vocabulary designed expressly for historical interpretation - such as project, intentionality, and the social imaginary. An important departure from prevailing trends in many fields, Blurred Boundaries offers new directions for the study of visual culture." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 149-182) and index ISBN: 0253340640 (alk. paper); 0253209005 (paper : alk. paper) LON: 10767942 More info

Palmer examines more than three hundred films as texts that represent, revise, parody, comment upon, and generate discussion about major events, issues, and social trends of the eighties. Palmer defines the dialectic between film art and social history, taking as his theoretical model the 'holograph of history' that originated from the New Historicist theories of Hayden White and Dominick LaCaprra. In the eighties,such issues included the war in Vietnam, the preservation of the American farm, terrorism, nuclear holocaust, changes in Soviet-American relations, neoconservative feminism, and yuppies. Among the films Palmer examines are Platoon, The Killing Fields, The River, Out of Africa, Little Drummer Girl, Kiss of the Spiderwoman, Silkwood, The Day After, Red Dawn, Moscow on the Hudson, Troop Beverly Hills, and Fatal Attraction. Utilizing the principles of New Historicism, Palmer demonstrates that film can analyze and critique history as well as present it." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9780809320295 Contents: The holograph of history -- The Vietnam War as film text -- The "coming home" films -- The terrorism film texts -- The nuclear war film texts -- From the "evil empire" to Glasnost -- The feminist farm crisis and other neoconservative feminist texts -- The yuppie texts -- Film in the holograph of new history More info

But today's culture critics see in the decade a period when heterosexual/homosexual dualism came to dominate the representation of American masculinity. Masked Men documents how movies of the 1950s represented masculinity as a multiple masquerade. Hollywood depicted the sexual anxieties of the domesticated breadwinner, the repudiation of wartime homoerotic male bonding, the exhibitionism of muscular bodies, the transvestic connotations of boyishness, and the playboy bachelor apartment. These presentations challenged the postwar ideal of the typical American male, that omnipresent and seemingly invisible Man in a Gray Flannel Suit Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. -335) and index; Filmography: p. -322 ISBN: 0253211271 (pa : alk. paper); 0253332974 (cl : alk. paper) LON: 12951206 More info

A Hollywood celebrity, Ford lived his life against the background that Twentieth Century-Fox fashioned for him. As he did, the facts of his life merged with - and became inseparable from - his multifaceted legend, fostered by Hollywood's studio culture and his own imagination. In The Westerns and War Films of John Ford Sue Matheson offers an engaging look at one of America's greatest directors and the two genres of films that solidified his reputation. Drawing on previously unreleased material, this volume explores the man, the filmmaker, the veteran, and the legend - and the ways in which all of those roles shaped Ford's view of America, national character, and his creative output. Among the films discussed here in depth are Ford's early productions, such as The Iron Horse and Drums along the Mohawk, his military films, such as Submarine Patrol, The Battle of Midway, and They Were Expendable, and his Westerns, including Fort Apache, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, The Searchers, and Cheyenne Autumn. Ford imbued many of his creations with a point of view that represented his ideals, and the films discussed here illustrate their director's distinct vision of American life on the frontier and in service of the country. That vision - Ford's idealization of the American Character - would, in turn, shape the worldview of several generations. The Westerns and War Films of John Ford will appeal to critics and scholars, but also to any fan of this iconic filmmaker's work.
