“An important historical and theoretical voyage of discovery, this book leads the reader into neglected realms of spatial illusions that preceded, inflected, and may outlast the movies as we know them.”—Tom Gunning, University of Chicago

Since their inception, museums of science and natural history have mixed education and entertainment to incredible, eye-opening effect. Such modern technologies as touch-screen kiosks, videowalls, 3-D animation, podcasts, and IMAX draw spectators to museums in large numbers, promising a deeper understanding of the natural world through an expansive form of sensual experience. These interactive modes of exhibition send “shivers” down our spines, reflecting the distinct cognitive and visceral mapping skills we bring to spectacular architecture and illusionistic media. Focusing on several historical case studies, Alison Griffiths explores the uncanny and unforgettable impact of the panorama, planetarium, IMAX theater, and the medieval cathedral on the spectator. Through her analysis Griffiths reveals the sometimes surprising antecedents of our modern forms of media.

Eye of the Century
Film, Experience, Modernity
Francesco Casetti
“An extraordinarily rich meditation on the ways that cinema operated at the very heart of the unruly twentieth century.”—Charles Musser, Yale University

Hollywood’s Censor
Joseph I. Breen and the Production Code Administration
Thomas Doherty
“Doherty writes with such wit and verve, bringing the past to life... a very entertaining read.” —Publishers Weekly “Compelling, colorful, insightful, and nearly encyclopedic in detail...destined to become the definitive scholarly biography of Breen. Highly recommended.”—Library Journal “[An] entertaining and rigorous biography of Breen.”—New York Times Book Review

In this brilliant book, acclaimed film scholar Francesco Casetti situates the cinematic experience within discourses of twentiethcentury modernity. He suggests that film defined a unique gaze, not only because it recorded many of the century’s most important events, but also because it determined the manner in which they were received. Casetti begins by examining film’s nature as a medium in an age obsessed with immediacy, nearness, and accessibility. He considers the myths and rituals cinema constructed on the screen and in the theater and how they provided new images and behaviors that responded to emerging concerns, ideas, and social orders.

From 1934 to 1954 Joseph I. Breen, a mediasavvy Victorian Irishman, reigned over the Production Code Administration, the Hollywood office responsible for censoring the American screen. Though little known outside the ranks of the studio system, this former journalist and public relations agent was one of the most powerful men in the motion picture industry. Cultural historian Thomas Doherty tells the absorbing story of Breen’s ascent to power and the widespread effects of his reign.

FILM HISTORY

George Gallup in Hollywood
Susan Ohmer
“A well-detailed account of this obscure chapter in cinema history . . . Recommended.”—Library Journal “A fascinating and exciting book.”—Public Opinion Quarterly

Silent Film Sound
Rick Altman
Winner of the Limina Award for Best Cinema Studies Book Winner of the Theater Library Association Award

“Rick Altman has given us a magnum opus... a stunningly original work of film history.”—Film Quarterly “Silent Film Sound is a bible of reference information and vintage photos.”—Bookwatch “A magisterial effort of a type rarely seen in cinema today... Altman’s history is precise, reflective, and human.”—Cinema Journal

George Gallup’s polling techniques first achieved fame when he accurately predicted that Franklin D. Roosevelt would be reelected president in 1936. Hollywood studio executives quickly pounced on the value of Gallup’s research, and soon Gallup was gauging reactions to stars and scripts for RKO Pictures, David O. Selznick, and Walt Disney and taking the public’s temperature on Orson Welles and Desi Arnaz, couples such as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, and films like Gone with the Wind, Dumbo, and Fantasia. Through interviews and extensive research, Susan Ohmer traces Gallup’s groundbreaking approach to market research from his early education in the advertising industry to his later work in Hollywood.

Based on extensive original research and filled with gorgeous illustrations, Silent Film Sound reconsiders all aspects of sound practices during the silent film period in America. Beginning with sound accompaniment and continuing through to the more familiar sound practices of the 1920s, renowned film historian Rick Altman discusses the variety of sound strategies cinema exhibitors used to differentiate their products.

Technological Change and the Rise of Corporate Mass Media
Steve J. Wurtzler
“Essential reading for anyone interested in twentieth-century audio: the hum and buzz of amplified sound as well as the corporate ka-ching that helped to make it so pervasive.”—Lisa Gitelman, author of Always Already New: Media, History, and the Data of Culture “Extensively researched. . .

Subversion
The Definitive History of Underground Cinema
Duncan Reekie Duncan Reekie explores the history of underground cinema, including the British independent and French avant-garde cinemas of the 1920s, the counterculture film movements of the 1960s, the microcinema resurgence of the 1990s, and beyond. Dispensing with simplistic “art versus commerce” discourses, Subversion not only discovers the cultural roots of underground filmmaking in bohemian cabarets of nineteenth-century Paris and the fairbooths of medieval London, but situates the underground as a radical and popular subculture separate from mainstream cinema and avant-garde film.

Electric Sounds brings to vivid life an era when innovations in the production, recording, and transmission of sound revolutionized a number of different media, especially the radio, the phonograph, and the cinema. Steve J. Wurtzler’s impeccably researched history adds a new dimension to the study of sound media, proving that the ultimate form technology takes is never predetermined. Rather, it is shaped by conflicting visions of technological possibility in economic, cultural, and political realms.

Winner of the Popular Culture Association’s Ray and Pat Browne Award for a reference work. Finalist: Theater Library Association Award

The Battle of Britain on Screen
‘The Few’ in British Film and Television Drama
S. P. Mackenzie The Battle of Britain on Screen examines the origins, development, and reception of the screen representations of “The Few” in the Battle of Britain. It explores both continuity and change of presentation in relation to a wartime event that acquired near-mythical dimensions in popular consciousness even before it happened. In addition to technical developments, considerable social, cultural, and political fluctuations occurred during this period.

Haunted Images
Film, Ethics, Testimony, and the Holocaust
Libby Saxton
“Haunted Images takes the study of Holocaust representation to new levels of theoretical sophistication. The various arguments are presented with lucidity, depth and dramatic finesse, offering an exciting reading to complex aesthetic issues and demanding ethical considerations, ultimately suggesting how the representations of the Holocaust and their critical discourse offer insights into the future of the image as witness.”—Ilan Avisar, Tel Aviv University

Uncovering the Holocaust
The International Reception of Night and Fog
Edited by Ewout van der Knaap Nuit et Brouillard (Night and Fog, 1956) by Alain Resnais carried the impact of the Holocaust to the cinema screen and to societies across the world. This volume, which coincides with the fiftieth anniversary of the film’s release, examines its representation of the Holocaust and documents its reception in different contexts, countries, and societies, as well as its continuing place in the cultural memory of the Holocaust. It comprises a comparative study of the place of the film in the debates around the actuality and the meaning of the Holocaust in France, Germany, Israel, the Netherlands, the UK, and the U.S.

Haunted Images considers a range of cinematic treatments of the Holocaust, using sustained textual analysis to radically rethink film as a witness to history. This volume redefines the particular challenges genocide presents to filmmakers, suggesting that filmic representations address the Holocaust as much through what is unseen as through what is visualized directly. Incorporating discussion of film such as Kapo (1960), Shoah (1985), and Histoire(s) du cinéma (1997), this work provides a compelling reading of European cinema’s response to the problems the Holocaust presents to filmmakers.

Cinema and History
The Telling of Stories
Michael Chopra-Gant With its unparalleled capacity for realism, cinema seems uniquely positioned to bring history to life for a mass audience. Whether retelling stories about past events or reflecting more contemporary issues, cinema has been arguably the primary source of historical knowledge for many people from its earliest years up to the present. This volume examines key historical issues raised by popular film, including what film might tell us about the past, the reliability of movies as sources of historical knowledge, and how film might compare to more "serious" works of history. Cinema and History discusses the historical resonance of films such as Lawrence of Arabia (1962), Gangs of New York (2002), and United 93 (2006).

A Theory of Narrative
Rick Altman
“Altman draws on examples ranging from the Bible to Hollywood films, from classical epic and pastoral to medieval heroic poetry, and from saints’ lives to nineteenth- and twentiethcentury French, British, and American novels, all analyzed within an impressively parsimonious scheme.”—Peter Garrett, University of Illinois

Breaking away from traditional forms of analysis, award-winning scholar Rick Altman introduces a new approach to studying narrative, identifying three basic strategies: single focus, dual focus, and multiple focus. Analyzing an intentionally diverse selection of texts, Altman demonstrates how these strategies function in context, and illustrates their theoretical and practical applications in terms of textual analysis, literary and film history, social organization, religion, and politics. Altman employs his inventive terminology and precise analytical methods throughout this groundbreaking work, making it an ideal teaching tool for literary and film theory courses and for the general reader interested in exploring narrative.

Scenes of Love and Murder
Renoir, Film, and Philosophy
Colin Davis Jean Renoir (1894–1979) is one of cinema history’s greatest directors. La Grande illusion (1937) and La Règle du jeu (1939) rank among the masterpieces of film. Turning to thinkers such as Aristotle, Wittgenstein, Girard, Derrida, and Cavell, Colin Davis examines Renoir’s films and illustrates how his work engages with some of the great philosophical questions. In particular, Renoir’s films reflect on the nature of murder and its link to desire, community, ethics, and the mystery of other minds. As his films strive, and often fail, to avoid the impasse of violence, they find creative ways of reinventing what it means to be human.

The New European Cinema
Redrawing the Map
Rosalind Galt
Choice Outstanding Academic Title

“Brilliant.. . This book will interest all students of European culture, not just European Cinema. . . Essential.”—Choice “In her ambitious scope, analytical acumen and deep research, Rosalind Galt makes a daring and much-needed intervention.”—Film International

Rosalind Galt offers innovative readings of some of the most popular and influential European films of the 1990s, including Emir Kusturica’s Underground, Lars Von Trier’s Zentropa, and Giuseppe Tornatore’s Cinema Paradiso. She considers how these films, made around the time of the revolutions of 1989, grappled with contemporary anxieties relating to the reunification of Germany, the disintegration of the Balkans, and a sense of historical loss and disenchantment. Going beyond the conventional focus on national cinemas, Galt considers how films from the Balkans to Scandinavia are recasting relationships among European cinema, history, and identity.

Religion and Film
Cinema and the Re-Creation of the World
S. Brent Plate The religious altar and the film screen appear as cousins. Religion and film both re-create the known world and then present that alternative vision to their audience. Religion and Film explores the connection of these two worlds and how they mutually affect each other. The hypothesis is that by paying attention to the way films are constructed, we can shed light on the way religions are constructed, and vice versa. This book brings together religious studies and film studies, asking questions about film’s effect on religious attitudes and how millennia-old myths and rituals alter the making of film.

Film and Philosophy
Taking Movies Seriously
Daniel C. Shaw In Film and Philosophy: Taking Movies Seriously philosophers and philosophical film theorists discuss movies in a way that takes cinema as seriously as any other fine art, leaving little doubt that the philosophy of film is a serious intellectual enterprise. After discussing the philosophical commitments of such early film theorists as Hugo Münsterberg and Sergei Eisenstein, this book offers detailed profiles of Stanley Cavell and Noël Carroll, providing archetypal examples of what it means to regard film philosophically.

Documentary Display
Re-Viewing Nonfiction Film and Video
Keith Beattie Not all documentary films and videos are sober depictions of the real world. Documentary representations can present expressive, entertaining, and spectacular images and explore modes of “showing,” in which sensation is the vehicle of cognition and knowledge. This display is analyzed within the popular and prominent forms of found-footage film, “rockumentary,” the city film, nonfiction surf film and video, and certain views of natural science. An accessible and informed study, its focus on entertaining, popular, spectacular, and sensational forms of nonfiction representation is an important contribution to theoretical analysis of documentary film and video.

Josef von Sternberg
The Case of Lena Smith
Edited by Alexander Horwath and Michael Omasta In his 1929 Hollywood production The Case of Lena Smith, director Josef von Sternberg brought to life his youthful memories of Vienna at the turn of the nineteenth century. Only a short fragment of this film survives, making The Case of Lena Smith one of the legendary lost masterpieces of American cinema. Bringing together 150 original stills and set designs, numerous script and production documents, and essays by eminent film historians, this book reconstructs Sternberg’s dramatic film about a young woman fighting the oppressive class system of imperial Vienna.

Studying Blade Runner
Sean Redmond In Studying Blade Runner, Sean Redmond uses the key concepts of media and film studies—film language, representation, institutions, and audiences—to explore the significance of the film. Specifically, the book looks at the film’s breakthrough use of special effects as a narrative tool; its revolutionary representation of the future city; its treatment of racial and sexual politics; and its unique status as a text whose meaning was fundamentally altered in the re-released “Director’s Cut.”

Anna Dawson Following the release of the sequels to the 1999 hit film, The Matrix, producer Joel Silver declared 2003 as “the Year of The Matrix.” Interest in all three films remains high and the original film makes an ideal case study in science fiction cinema. SF fans are absorbed in the film’s revolutionary special effects; action-movie buffs relish the conjunction of Hong Kong martial arts techniques with mainstream Hollywood aesthetics; and intellectuals immerse themselves in the film’s explicit evocation of Baudrillard and higher mathematics.

Studying City of God
Stephanie Muir City of God was a huge international success, a combination of intoxicating, Hollywoodstyle filmmaking and hard-hitting, socialrealist subject matter. Stephanie Muir provides a consideration of the historical and industrial context of the film, a brief history of Latin American cinema, then a detailed account of filmmaking in Brazil. She looks at how the film uses the components of narrative to experiment with time while using traditional genre conventions. A detailed, illustrated analysis of the kinetic, scene-setting opening sequence is used to dissect the formal elements of the film.

Studying Chungking Express
Sean Redmond Wong Kar-Wai’s 1994 Chungking Express explores time and desire and, on an allegorical level, the perceived loss of independence that many felt would take place post-1997. Studying Chungking Express considers these historical details but also the key issues of form, authorship, representation, and identity. In particular, the book studies the film’s central place within the Hong Kong New Wave film movement; its radical film form— notably the cut-and-mix play with editing techniques, Wong Kar-wai’s signature as an auteur; its representation of the postmodern city, and its relationship to both Hollywood cinema and European art film.

Cities in Transition
The Moving Image and the Modern Metropolis
Edited by Andrew Webber and Emma Wilson The city has been a modernist inspiration for silent classics such as Metropolis (1926) and contemporary films like The Matrix (1999).

A Family Affair
Cinema Calls Home
Edited by Murray Pomerance The family has been a central theme in movies since the earliest days of the medium. This new anthology brings the subject into sharp focus, collecting a range of multidisciplinary perspectives on the role of the family onscreen. Discussing a wide range of films—House of Strangers (1949); Mary Poppins (1964); Superstar (1987); The Royal Tenenbaums (2001); Brokeback Mountain (2005); and more—this study addresses not only the nature of family values in cinema but also the family nature of cinematic production in Hollywood. This volume provides a penetrating view of the oldest and most influential social institution as depicted on screen.

Direct Cinema
Observational Documentary and the Politics of the Sixties
Dave Saunders Direct Cinema is the first major study of the pivotal “direct cinema” documentary movement of 1960s America. Using lightweight cameras and synchronised sound, filmmakers like Robert Drew, D.A. Pennebaker, and Frederick Wiseman intimately documented such events as John F. Kennedy’s bid for the White House (Primary, 1960), Bob Dylan’s 1965 British tour (Don’t Look Back, 1965), and the tune-in and drop-out ethos of hippy culture (Woodstock, 1970). This new volume provides a comprehensive account of these vastly influential yet politically underappreciated films and connects them with the greater artistic and political impulses of the sixties.

FILM CRITICISM Shakespeare on Film
Such Things as Dreams are Made Of
Carolyn Jess-Cooke Since the birth of Shakespearean cinema in 1899, there have been close to 500 film adaptations of the Bard’s work in which he has been taken to outer space, downtown Mumbai, and feudal Japan. Exploring this astonishing array from early cinema to the present, Shakespeare on Film analyzes Shakespearean cinema in four major contexts: performance, adaptation, film style, and popularization, interpreting his unique ability to penetrate cultures, mindsets, and languages across the world.

John Mills and British Cinema
Masculinity, Identity and Nation
Gill Plain Although his film career extended from the early days of sound to the British New Wave and beyond, Sir John Mills is nonetheless remembered as the archetypal hero of the Second World War. Regarded as an English “everyman,” he came to represent a newly democratic masculine ideal. This penetrating study asks how was it possible for an actor to embody national identity. By exploring the cultural contexts in which Mills and the nation became synonymous, Gill Plain offers a new perspective on forty years of cinema and social change.

From Michael Almereyda’s Hamlet to Michael Radford’s Merchant of Venice and Peter Babakitis’ Henry V, this volume analyzes major and obscure productions, touching on advertisements, postcolonial reinventions, and mass media citations, arguing that Shakespeare is a magnet for debate over style, literary authority, nationality, ethnicity, and gender. Considering the Derry Film Initiative Hamlet, the New Zealand Maori Merchant of Venice, and the television documentary In Search of Shakespeare, this collection innovatively assesses the continuing relevance of Shakespeare.

The Lord of the Rings
Popular Culture in Global Context
Edited by Ernest Mathijs
Foreword by Brian Sibley

Filmosophy is a provocative new manifesto for a radically philosophical way of understanding cinema. It coalesces twentieth-century ideas of film as thought (from Hugo Münsterberg to Gilles Deleuze) into a practical theory of “film-thinking,” arguing that film style conveys poetic ideas through a constant dramatic “intent” about the characters, spaces, and events of film. Discussing contemporary film-makers such as Béla Tarr and the Dardenne brothers, this timely contribution to the study of film and philosophy will provoke debate among audiences and filmmakers alike.

FILM CRITICISM
New in Paper

Sex and the Cinema
Tanya Krzywinska Sex and the Cinema traces the numerous factors and contexts — artistic, institutional, political, and socio-cultural — that have shaped the way that sex appears in film. Given that cinematic representations of sex have perhaps caused more controversy than any others, Krzywinska charts the cultural norms and contestations that are often diversely in play and explores forms and themes such as narrative, incest, romance, sado-masochism, and “real” sex. Films discussed include Don’t Look Now, Intolerance, The Blue Angel, Now, Voyager, Basic Instinct, Written on the Wind, Evil Dead II, Emmanuelle, A Taste of Honey, and The Night Porter.

Deleuze, Cinema and National Identity challenges the traditional use of Deleuze’s philosophy to examine European art cinema. It explores how Deleuze can be used to analyse national identity across a range of different cinemas. Focusing on narrative time it combines a Deleuzean approach with a vast range of non-traditional material. The films discussed are contemporary and popular (either financial or cult successes), and include Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Terminator 3, Memento, Saving Private Ryan, Run Lola Run, Sliding Doors, Chaos and Peppermint Candy. Each film is examined in light of a major historical event—including 9/11, German reunification, and the Asian economic crisis—and the impact it has had on individual nations.

Hollywood Science
Movies, Science, and the End of the World

“An entertaining, maybe indispensable guide for film buffs everywhere.”—Booklist “A grand roundup of technical movie masterpieces . . . praising scientific accuracy (A Beautiful Mind) and exposing turkeys (Volcano).”—Los Angeles Magazine

Disaster Movies
The Cinema of Catastrophe Second Edition
Stephen Keane
“Throughout Keane’s writing is never too technical or marred with excessive film jargon but is both accessible and challenging, and his book will work in an undergraduate Film Studies course to compare and contrast specific movies from the last three decades.”—Film and History

In this entertaining book, Sidney Perkowitz discusses the portrayal of science in more than one hundred films, including scientific biographies and documentaries. Beginning with early films like Voyage to the Moon and Metropolis and concluding with more recent offerings like The Matrix, War of the Worlds, A Beautiful Mind, and An Inconvenient Truth, Perkowitz questions how much faith we can put into Hollywood’s depiction of scientists and their work; how accurately these films capture scientific fact and theory; whether cataclysms like our collision with a comet can actually happen; and to what extent these films influence public opinion about science and the future.

In this second edition, he adds new material regarding cinematic representations of disaster in the wake of 9/11 and an analysis of disaster movies in light of recent natural disasters.

Drawing on the work of Said, Hall, Shields, Urry, Bauman, Deleuze and Guattari, and other critical theorists, Crossing New Europe adopts a broad interpretation of “Europe” and discusses directors and films who have long been associated with the road movie, such as Wim Wenders (Alice in the Cities, Lisbon Story) and Aki Kaurismäki (Leningrad Cowboys Go America! ), and other more recent contributions such as Run Lola Run, Dear Diary, and The Last Resort.

This wide-ranging book illuminates the importance of the Western in American history, exploring the interconnections between the Western in both literature and film in the twentieth century. Structured chronologically, McVeigh traces the evolution of the Western as a uniquely American form. He argues that America’s frontier past was quickly transformed into a set of symbols and myths, an American metanarrative that came to underpin much of the “American century.” He details how and why this process occurred, the form and function of Western myths and symbols, the evolution of this mythology, and its subversions and reconstructions throughout twentieth-century American history.

What is the sentimental? How can we understand it by way of the visual and narrative modes of signification specific to cinema and through the manners of social interaction and collective imagining specific to a particular culture in transition? Rey Chow explores these questions through nine contemporary Chinese directors (Chen Kaige, Wong Kar-wai, Zhang Yimou, Ann Hui, Peter Chan, Wayne Wang, Ang Lee, Li Yang, and Tsai Ming-liang) whose accomplishments have become historic events in world cinema. By naming these films sentimental fabulations—screen artifacts of cultural becoming with irreducible aesthetic, conceptual, and speculative logics of their own—Chow presents Chinese cinema first and foremost as an invitation to the pleasures and challenges of critical thinking.

Chris Berry and Mary Farquhar explore more than one hundred years of Chinese cinema and nation. Providing new perspectives on key movements, themes, and filmmakers, Berry and Farquhar analyze the films of a variety of directors and actors, including Chen Kaige, Zhang Yimou, Hou Hsiao Hsien, Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Maggie Cheung, Gong Li, Wong Kar-wai, and Ang Lee. Among the issues and themes covered are the tension between operatic and realist modes, male and female star images, transnational production and circulation of Chinese films, the image of the good foreigner—all related to different ways of imagining nation.

Asian Cinemas
A Reader and Guide
Edited by Dimitris Eleftheriotis and Gary Needham This guide refuses to cast Asian cinema as a gallery of exotic and foreign curiosities. It places “unfamiliar” case studies within the context of “familiar” areas of critical discourse to investigate the limitations of western theoretical models and paradigms. Case studies include Hong Kong and Turkish cinema, Hindi melodramas, Godzilla films, Taiwanese directors, Fifth Generation Chinese cinema, and the works of Ozu and Bruce Lee.

Representing Atrocity in Taiwan
The 2/28 Incident and White Terror in Fiction and Film
Sylvia Li-chun Lin In 1945, Taiwan was placed under the administrative control of the Republic of China, and after two years, accusations of corruption and a failing economy sparked a local protest that was brutally quashed by the Kuomintang government. The February Twenty-Eighth (or 2/28) Incident led to four decades of martial law that became known as the White Terror. During this period, talk of 2/28 was forbidden and all dissent violently suppressed, but since the lifting of martial law in 1987, this long-buried history has been revisited through commemoration and narrative, cinema, and remembrance. Sylvia Li-chun Lin conducts a close analysis of the political, narrative, and ideological structures involved in the fictional and cinematic representations of the 2/28 Incident and White Terror. She assesses the role of individual and collective memory and institutionalized forgetting, while underscoring the dangers of re-creating a historical past and the risks of trivialization. She also compares her findings with scholarly works on the Holocaust and the aftermath of the atomic bombings of Japan, questioning the politics of forming public and personal memories and the political teleology of “closure.”

Vision On
Film, Television, and the Arts in Britain
John Wyver Vision On sheds light on one of British television’s most innovative contributions to broadcasting—its coverage of the arts, chronicling the long history of collaboration between broadcasters and the Arts Council. The arts were central to many of the earliest public broadcasting documentaries, and by the 1980s Channel 4 and the Arts Council had redefined the relationship of the arts and the media by commissioning exclusive and innovative films. John Wyver illuminates the vanguard role the arts have played in the history of British public broadcasting and locates the place of arts broadcasting in today’s multichannel, multi-media world.

Its vivid contrasts and dark spaces constitute a major influence on Hollywood classics such as Citizen Kane (1941) and Sunset Blvd. (1950). This volume offers insights into the technical and thematic developments of the Weimar film, covering classics such as The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari (1920), Nosferatu (1922), and Asphalt (1929).

The Impossible David Lynch
Todd McGowan
“An intellectually poignant, theoretically sophisticated, and erudite presentation of David Lynch’s films.”—Elisabeth Bronfen, University of Zurich

Hitchcock’s Romantic Irony
Richard Allen
“Richard Allen is without doubt the only theoretician of the cinema today about whom one can say unequivocally that he knows Hitchcock’s films as well as the creator himself. He has also found, with ‘romantic irony,’ one of the best possible terms for making Hitchcock’s singular genius shine.”—Raymond Bellour, film critic and theoretician

Todd McGowan launches a provocative exploration of weirdness and fantasy in David Lynch’s groundbreaking oeuvre. Considering the filmmaker’s entire career, McGowan examines Lynch’s play with fantasy and traces the political, cultural, and existential impact of his unique style. Each chapter discusses the idea of impossibility in one of Lynch’s films, including the critically acclaimed Blue Velvet and The Elephant Man; the densely plotted Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive; the cult favorite Eraserhead; and the commercially unsuccessful Dune. McGowan engages with theorists from the “golden age” of film studies (Christian Metz, Laura Mulvey, and Jean-Louis Baudry) and with the writings of Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan, and Hegel. By using Lynch’s weirdness as a point of departure, McGowan adds a new dimension to the field of auteur studies and reveals Lynch to be the source of a new and radical conception of fantasy.

In a new interpretation of the director’s work, Richard Allen argues that Hitchcock orchestrates the narrative and stylistic idioms of popular cinema to at once celebrate and subvert the ideal of romance and to forge a distinctive worldview—the amoral outlook of the romantic ironist or aesthete. He describes in detail how Hitchcock’s characteristic tone is achieved through a titillating combination of suspense and black humor that subverts the moral framework of the romantic thriller, and a meticulous approach to visual style that articulates the lure of human perversity even as the ideal of romance is being deliriously affirmed.

Building Bridges is the first title to fully explore the work and legacy of French documentary maker Jean Rouch. Comfortable in front of the camera as well as behind it, Rouch made numerous renowned sociological films about French and francophone African culture. His playful documentaries also make him the spiritual ancestor of the filmmakers Nick Broomfield and Michael Moore. This study contains more than twenty new essays from an international cast of filmmakers, film critics, academics, and actors discussing Rouch’s massive contribution to ethnographic filmmaking, including films such as Les Maitres fous (1955), Le Pyramide humaine (1961), and Chronique d’un été (1961).

Several essays incorporate research from Bergman’s own personal archive. Among the subjects discussed are Bergman’s stage adaptations of Shakespeare, his fascination with still photography and issues of identity, and the influence of philosophy and psychology on his work.

This volume analyzes the themes and motifs of the director’s work and the changes he has brought to modern film. Ever since he founded the back-to-basics Dogme philosophy of filmmaking in 1995, von Trier’s name has been tied to taboobreaking cinema. He consistently courts media controversy through films such as The Idiots (1998), with its unsimulated sex and nonconformist politics. This volume presents von Trier as one of the most daring cinematic exponents of postmodern politics and satire.

The Cinema of David Cronenberg
From Baron of Blood to Cultural Hero
Ernest Mathijs David Cronenberg has become one of North America’s most respected movie directors. Since the early seventies, the soft-spoken Baron of Blood has attracted widespread controversy with a steady stream of shock—sex crazed parasites in Shivers (1975), exploding heads in Scanners (1981), revolutionary flesh technology in Videodrome (1983), mutating bugs in The Fly (1986), car-crash scars in Crash (1996), and psychopathic bursts of gun violence in A History of Violence (2005). This book provides an overview of Cronenberg’s films in light of their international reception.

Sophie Mayer Sally Potter is known for her award-winning films Thriller (1979), Orlando (1992), The Tango Lesson (1997), and YES (2004). These films are widely taught and theoretically valued for their poetic vision and incisive formulations of identities in flux. Potter’s authorship comprises a fluid movement between director, screenwriter, composer, and performer. Central to this study is the politically radical potential in Potter’s interaction with the live spectator. As Orlando’s gaze engages the viewer, this book engages cinema in terms of performance studies, poetics, and feminist philosophy.

On Screenwriting
Freddie Gaffney Writers have been publishing screenwriting books for over half a century now, full of “insider tips” on how to make it big in Hollywood. Titles suggest screenwriting is an art, a craft, a skill, a business, a talent, a knack, or most simply, the ability to tell stories. It is, of course, all of these. What these books seldom do is take a complete novice through the steps of learning and understanding creative writing, be it for the Hollywood feature film or for the college video production. That is what On Screenwriting sets out to do. This volume is a practical manual that engages with the theory of the constructional process.

Digital technologies have fundamentally altered the nature and function of media in our society. Blogs, podcasting, and other forms of internet-based reporting have reinvented age-old practices of public communication, at times circumventing traditional media and challenging its privileged role as gatekeepers of news and entertainment. Some critics believe these technologies keep the public involved in an informed discourse on matters of public importance, but it isn’t clear this is happening on a large scale. Propaganda disguised as news is flourishing, and though interaction with the digital domain teaches children valuable skills, it can also expose them to grave risks. In this book John V. Pavlik critically examines our current digital innovations and their positive and negative implications.

Dekalog 01: On The Five Obstructions
Edited by Mette Hjort Released in 2003, Lars von Trier and Jørgen Leth’s agonisitic film is one of the most intriguing and significant cinematic works of recent times. This first issue in the Dekalog series, the new home for serious film criticism, brings together writers from diverse disciplinary and national backgrounds to present a case for seeing The Five Obstructions as a philosophically compelling film that tests our understanding of key psychological, aesthetic, and ethical issues: the role of others in facilitating self-understanding; creativity and its relation to constraint; individual style as an artistic problem; filmmaking as a form of play; and the ethical limitations of aestheticism.

Performing Illusions
Cinema, Special Effects, and the Virtual Actor
Dan North The camera supposedly never lies, yet film’s ability to frame, cut, and reconstruct all that passes before its lens has made cinema the most powerful medium of visual illusion. This volume examines film’s creative history of special effects and trickery, encompassing everything from George Méliès’s first trick films to modern CGI, and discussing films such as Spider-Man (2002) and the King Kong films (1933 and 2006). Evaluating the movement toward the use of computergenerated “synthespians” in films, Dan North suggests that cinematic effects should be understood not as attempts to perfectly mimic real life but as constructions of substitute realities, situating them in the cultural lineage of stage performers and illusionists.

Dubbing and Subtitling in a World Context

This book looks at dubbing and subtitling from a world perspective, and is a must-read for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of the history and theory of subtitling.

Music, Sound, and Multimedia
From the Live to the Virtual
Edited by Jamie Sexton Music and sound effects have been central to a multitude of media forms throughout the twentieth century, as background accompaniment and as a main driving force of action. Yet the investigation of sonic interactions with other media forms has been largely underresearched. Music, Sound, and Multimedia uniquely studies how music and other sounds play a central part in our understanding and uses of a variety of communications media. Jamie Sexton focuses on four areas of sound and music within broader multimedia forms—music videos, video game music, performance and presentation, and production and consumption.

The Columbia History of American Television
Gary Edgerton
“An accessible and compelling narrative of the complicated forces that went into creating our most enigmatic of mediums.”—Ken Burns, Filmmaker

Media historian Gary R. Edgerton follows the technological developments and increasing cultural relevance of TV from its prehistory (before 1947) to the Network Era (1948– 1975) and the Cable Era (1976–1994). He begins with the laying of the first telegraph line in 1844, which gave rise to the idea that images and sounds could be transmitted over long distances. He then considers the remodeling of television’s look and purpose during World War II; the gender, racial, and ethnic components of its early broadcasts and audiences; its transformation of postwar America; and its function in the political life of the country. Edgerton concludes with a discerning look at our current Digital Era and the new forms of instantaneous communication that continue to change America’s social, political, and economic landscape.

The Presidential Debates
Fifty Years of High Risk TV Second Edition

How the American Mainstream Media Reports the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
Marda Dunsky Beginning with the failed Camp David summit of July 2000 and ending with the waning of the second Palestinian uprising in the summer of 2004, Marda Dunsky takes a close look at how more than two dozen major American print and broadcast outlets have reported the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. She finds that they omit two key contextual elements: the significant impact that U.S. policy has had and continues to have on the trajectory of the conflict, and the way international law and consensus have addressed the key issues of Israeli settlement and annexation policies and Palestinian refugees. She explores how reporting of the conflict routinely takes on the contours of American policy and rarely challenges the premises of this “Washington consensus.” In addition, she examines the media’s responses to allegations of biased coverage and gauges the effect that mainstream news reporting has on public opinion and U.S. foreign policy. She includes the perspectives of more than a dozen correspondents who have reported the story from the field for major American media outlets.

This wildly popular history now covers the 2000 Bush-Gore and 2004 Bush-Kerry debates, including innovations in format and press coverage, and incorporates new research into the analysis of televised debates since 1960. Alan Schroeder organizes his book according to a television production timeline, highlighting the importance of pre- and post-debate periods, as well as the live telecasts themselves. He describes production in painstaking detail, from the selection of questioners to camera angles, from makeup to lighting and set design. Televised debates represent a rare departure from well-choreographed campaigns, and with new media such as YouTube continuing to redefine form and content, the 2008 election should present the most exciting opportunities for debate yet.

European Cinemas in the Television Age
Edited by Graham Roberts and Dorota Ostrowska Graham Roberts and Dorota Ostrowska radically rethink European cinema’s postwar history from the perspective of television’s impact on the culture of cinema’s production, distribution, consumption, and reception. In every European country television has transformed the economic, technological, and aesthetic terms of cinema production. Its growing popularity has drastically reshaped cinema’s audiences and forced governments to introduce policies to regulate the interaction between cinema and television. Cinematic criticism has been slow to address the impact of television, but this study recognizes its influence and offers a more authentic and richer history of European cinemas.
