  • Living in a World without Sun: Jacques Cousteau, Homo aquaticus, and the
           Dream of Dwelling Undersea
    • Abstract: “I think there will be a conscious and deliberate evolution of Homo aquaticus, spurred by human intelligence rather than the slow blind natural adaptation of species. We are now moving toward an alteration of human anatomy to give man almost unlimited freedom underwater.”1 So Jacques-Yves Cousteau told a baffled audience of ocean scientists at the World Congress on Underwater Activities in London in October 1962. Although Cousteau based his claim on American scientists’ research into surgically implantable artificial gills that would allow divers, like fish, to regenerate the oxygen in their blood without breathing air, his ultimate vision was of “future generations born in underwater villages, finally adapting to ...

  • From the Question of Soul to a Carnival of Souls: The Truncated Road Film,
           Gothic Automobiles, and Dangerous Women Drivers
    • Abstract: Carnival of Souls (Herk Harvey, 1962) begins with a high-speed drag race—a carload of carefree young girls tear through the rural roadways of a small Kansas town while pursued by another automobile. The contest ends in disaster when the car containing the young women careens over the side of a bridge and plunges into the river below. As the lone survivor, Mary (Candace Hilligoss), stumbles from the depths of the watery crash, a narrative of macabre and eerie events begins to unfold. Viewers are subsequently invited on another journey, a road trip to Utah with Mary, in which the boundaries between life and death begin to disintegrate as the protagonist is inexplicably drawn toward an abandoned amusement pavilion at ...

  • Malthus at the Movies: Science, Cinema, and Activism around Z.P.G. and
           Soylent Green
    • Abstract: In the early 1970s, two Hollywood films portrayed the coming millennium as desperately overcrowded and polluted, fast running out of resources and space. Both Z.P.G.: Zero Population Growth (Michael Campus, 1972) and Soylent Green (Richard Fleischer, 1973) were products of the “Malthusian moment,” a brief peak in the late 1960s and early 1970s of environmental concerns with world population growth and its control, but they also differed in significant ways.1 Z.P.G. imagined a totalitarian state that banned childbirth on penalty of death, fared as poorly at the box office as with critics, and became embroiled in a major fracas with the grassroots organization Zero Population Growth (ZPG). Soylent Green envisioned a ... Read More

  • The Makings of a Contradictory Franchise: Revolutionary Melodrama and
           Cynicism in The Hunger Games
    • Abstract: Marx and Engels begin The Communist Manifesto by arguing: “The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles. Freeman and slave, patrician and plebeian, lord and serf, guild-master and journeyman, in a word, oppressor and oppressed. . . . Society as a whole is more and more splitting up into two great hostile camps, into two great classes directly facing each other—Bourgeoisie and Proletariat.”1 In depicting the most general framework for class analysis, Marx and Engels reconfigure the history of social relations into a “more or less veiled civil war, raging within existing society, up to the point where that war breaks out into open revolution, and where the violent overthrow of the ...

  • (Dis)locating Spain: Performance Intertextualities in Pedro Almodóvar’s
           Todo sobre mi madre
    • Abstract: In an article titled “Rethinking European Film Studies,” Tim Bergfelder de-constructs a series of well-established and frequently interiorized binary oppositions. Specific attention is paid to the ostensible divide between “universal” Hollywood texts and “culturally specific” European art-house fare: “In contrast to the ‘open’ American film, the closed textuality of European films (and of nationally popular genres in particular) is perceived to demand a culturally competent viewer, which simultaneously denies access to mass audiences in other countries who do not share or acquire the same competence.”1 Furthermore, “as European films are mostly treated as discrete cultural phenomena, transnational modes of ...

    • Abstract: Of the numerous South Korean films that have dealt with the country’s postcolonial division, Welkeom tu Dongmakgol (Welcome to Dongmakgol; Park Kwang-hyun, 2005; hereafter Dongmakgol) occupies an uncommon niche.1 In revisiting the wartime period (1950–1953), the film presents an oddly pleasurable scenario. Set in a secluded, mountainous village called Dongmakgol, it features a group of soldiers who are unexpectedly stranded together: a US Navy captain, two South Korean soldiers, and three North Korean comrades. Gradually assimilating to the simple, peaceful life in Dongmakgol, the soldiers eventually form a fraternity with one another and build a strong bond with the villagers. But in the end, they leave the ... Read More

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: Film studies developed as an academic discipline in the late 1960s—roughly the same time that hard-core pornography emerged from under the counter and into the public sphere in bookstores and movie theaters. In its quest for legitimacy, film studies cast its gaze backward some thirty or forty years, largely focusing on classical Hollywood cinema. After their establishment in the late 1960s in small storefront theaters in the United States, pornographic movies also drew heavily on Hollywood’s past, concentrating on narrative features, building a system largely based on bankable stars, and even mimicking Tinseltown with glitzy premieres for major releases. But even though film studies and pornographic cinema came of ... Read More

  • Microhistories and Materiality in Adult Film History, or the Case of
           Erotic Salad
    • Abstract: To my surprise, I discovered how important to me were, unknowingly, books I had never read, events and persons I did not know had existed.Writing more than fifteen years ago, Eric Schaefer detailed the state of the study of adult cinema in film studies in relation to the place of sex films in archives.1 Many of the conditions he described exist largely unchanged. Master copies and source materials of adult films are not housed in any single archive, nor are they necessarily located at designated film archives (the UCLA film archive being one specific exception). Many adult films have been lost, but those that remain are found across varied locations and sold by for-profit video distributors.2 Whereas producers and ... Read More

  • The Adult Film History Project
    • Abstract: Eventually, just about every adult film historian encounters a familiar, frustrating scenario. While conducting research, tantalizing traces of evidence—crucial contemporary press accounts, invaluable legal papers, or other primary documents—will come to light, only to vanish again, slipping through the historian’s fingers as if they never existed. Generally speaking, the adult film industries did not create conventional paper trails, nor did they embrace their own long-term legacies.1 In almost all cases, the bits and pieces they did leave behind have not been preserved or archived with conventional methods.2 The result for historians has been a methodologically complicated landscape defined by particular ...

  • Oh Paris! The Journeys of Lasse Braun’s 8mm Pornography
    • Abstract: An easy way to challenge the concept of national cinema is by drawing on examples: if a Danish film director makes a film, set in the United States, funded by various European institutions and production companies, in Trollhättan, Sweden, bringing in an Icelandic singer as the star of the film as well as a French cinematic icon and American actors—how do we describe that film' Film journalists and critics have used the disparaging term “Euro-pudding” to mark such ventures, but as various recognized auteurs have come to exploit the possibilities of European funding, this type of transnational film production has become much more common and is not routinely disregarded anymore. The same kind of transnationality can ... Read More

And I’m talking here from gonzo porn that means scene contains: ATM, DP, DAP, TAP, Face Fucking, Balls Deep, Merry Go Rounds, swallowing multiple loads, cum gargling, etc. Why can this work in Europe and not in US anymore' Otherwise I would suggest the American girls to visit Europe if they wanna experience some real hardcore poundings. —ultimate_sperminator, “US Porno is Softcore Compared to Legal Porno,” Adult DVD Talk, October 11, 2015While ultimate_sperminator, in the epigraph to this essay, is by no means the most articulate member of the fan forum Adult DVD Talk, and ...

  • The Queer Heart of Porn Studies
    • Abstract: In a field retrospective, Linda Williams historicizes the development of porn studies under the tutelage of film and video studies. Williams notes that, in hindsight, porn studies might also have thrived under “history, anthropology, cultural studies, or the then-developing queer studies.”1 Following this supposition, I want to explore what queerness can teach us about the study of adult film.2 The familial resemblance between porn studies and queer studies suggests that their coemergence was perhaps not coincidental at all but resulted from sex-positive feminist and nonstraight scholars who, amid the culture wars (and the rise of neoliberalism), took that indeterminate site of power—sexuality—as their primary ...

  • No Sex in Newark: Postindustrial Erotics at the Intersection of Urban and
           Adult Film History
    • Abstract: No masterpiece of pornography by most standards, Newark Penn Station Pt 1: Dude Fingering My Musty Booty (neanea14, 2015) consists of fifty-six seconds set in a restroom that foreground a man’s thrust-out ass. We peer up into it from below, as another man sitting on a toilet in an adjacent stall reaches under the divide to, indeed, finger it. The man being fingered shoots the scene from his phone camera, held in one hand as he strokes himself with the other, leaving us with a shaky and constrained view. Just before the minute mark, it abruptly stops. Fortunately for viewers left disoriented or seeking narrative or sexual closure, our cruising pornographer, known only as neanea14, posted a short sequel to his XTube ... Read More

  • Ghostly Desires: Queer Sexuality and Vernacular Buddhism in Contemporary
           Thai Cinema by Arnika Fuhrmann (review)
    • Abstract: In Ghostly Desires: Queer Sexuality and Vernacular Buddhism in Contemporary Thai Cinema, Arnika Fuhrmann materializes the apparitions summoned in Thai cinema after 1997, recoding spectral protagonists as figures of nonnormative desire who resist both doctrinal Buddhism and the state regulation of minoritized sexuality. Fuhrmann revisits sites of cinematic haunting and horror to assemble their specters under the rubric of “Buddhist melancholia,” a term denoting the Buddhist-coded tendency to eroticize loss in Thai cinema. Across Fuhrmann’s five dazzling case studies, apparitions surface as queer, feminist, and trans-identity avatars whose posthumous desires refuse prescriptive heterofamilial structures of ...

  • Hokum! The Early Sound Slapstick Short and Depression-Era Mass Culture by
           Rob King (review)
    • Abstract: James Agee summed up a whole tradition of thinking about American film comedy in his influential essay “Comedy’s Greatest Era” when he asserted, “The only thing wrong with screen comedy today is that it takes place on a screen which talks.”1 Agee’s assertion defined how sound-era screen clowning has been discussed, much as the essay established the canon of silent comedians deemed worthy of studying. Gerald Mast’s The Comic Mind: Comedy and the Movies preserves the idea of a breach between silent and sound comedy, shifting from a focus on silent clowns to screwball comedy with the entry of talking pictures, a move that oversimplifies the history of both subgenres.2Continuing a project begun with his own earlier ...

  • Melodrama: An Aesthetics of Impossibility by Jonathan Goldberg (review)
    • Abstract: An understanding of affect as an index of the political has been vital to the resurgence of scholarly interest in melodrama. As an affective mode par excellence, at least in the last two decades, melodrama has been associated with the ability to amplify the emotions of marginal and disadvantaged groups.1 Analytically, in cinema studies the challenge has been to uphold melodrama’s capacity to posit individual problems as larger, more complex indices of a desired social imaginary. Jonathan Goldberg’s Melodrama: An Aesthetics of Impossibility attempts to offer an interdisciplinary account of melodrama’s political possibilities by returning to its musical roots. Goldberg attempts to retrace melodrama’s original ... Read More

  • Spectacular Television: Exploring Televisual Pleasure by Helen Wheatley.
           I. B. Tauris (review)
    • Abstract: Helen Wheatley embarks on an ambitious project in Spectacular Television: Exploring Televisual Pleasure. She focuses on visual pleasure as an always-present component and competitive strategy of television that has been foregrounded by the turn to digital technologies. Wheatley is responding to two theories prevalent in television studies: medium specificity and John Ellis’s glance theory, which positions television as a medium of distracted viewing.1 Medium specificity posits a taxonomy contrasting cinematic style with televisuality. Wheatley introduces site-specific, large-scale “public television” as a “third category” of moving image, distinct from both home broadcasting and cinema.2 She examines examples of ... Read More

  • Stealing the Show: African American Performers and Audiences in 1930s
           Hollywood by Miriam J. Petty (review)
    • Abstract: In 1976, James Baldwin published “The Devil Finds Work,” a nonfiction blend of autobiography and film criticism.1 Detailing his own cinephilic perception, the essay critically interrogates the visual economy of race in American cinema. “It is scarcely possible,” Baldwin notes, “to think of a Black American actor who has not been misused: not one has ever been seriously challenged to deliver the best that is in him.”2 Describing the stunted careers of Paul Robeson and Ethel Waters, Baldwin suggests that “what the black actor has managed to give are moments—indelible moments, created, miraculously, beyond the confines of the script: hints of reality, smuggled like contraband into a maudlin tale, and with enough ...
