  • Cinema Diptych: Grindhouse Death Proof
    • Abstract: In the end, the diptych became the fundamental form of cinema, in very varied shapes but each time having the effect of putting time into bodies.Death Proof might well present two visions of a singular thing, especially since the film is organized as a diptych. In the first panel, murder takes place at night; in the second, revenge exposes itself in the daytime.Although it is primarily associated with pictorial representation, the term "diptych" is sometimes also applied to narrative forms, like novels or poems, and to works produced in any medium—music, performance, film—that either come as a pair or are in some way divided into two parts. In writings pertaining to the latter, "diptych" is most often used to ... Read More

  • Living Precariously in the African Postcolony: Debt and Labor Relations in
           the Films of Mahamat-Saleh Haroun
    • Abstract: The feature films of Mahamat-Saleh Haroun—Abouna (Our father, 2002), Daratt (Dry Season, 2006), Un homme qui crie (A Screaming Man, 2010), and Grisgris (2014)—invite critical methods that attend to the experience of feeling postcolonial precarity. The films give formal expression to the affective atmospheres and temporalities generated within the excruciating historical conditions of the present. Set in Chad, Haroun's films focus intensely on the subjective damage inflicted by globalization processes under the current regime of neoliberal capitalism (the liberalization of economies, the extraction of raw materials for external markets, and the reconfiguration of the functions of the state, as well as the expansion ...

  • The Melancholic Voice-Over in Film Noir
    • Abstract: There is a remarkable scene in Gilda (Charles Vidor, 1946) that foregrounds the importance of history and memory for the voice-over in film noir. It takes place not long after the opening, in which we see Johnny Farrell (Glenn Ford) throwing dice at a low-angle camera that rises up to meet them, shot by the great émigré cinematographer Rudolph Maté. Right afterward, Johnny's voice-over chimes in for the first time to introduce his story and its context: "To me a dollar was a dollar in any language. It was my first night in the Argentine and I didn't know much about the local citizens." We don't hear from him again until about fifteen minutes later, after he has been hired to work at an illegal Buenos Aires casino ... Read More

  • Brakhage and the Birth of Silence
    • Abstract: Why must one always talk' Often one shouldn't talk, but live in silence.That's when you know you've found somebody really special—when you can just shut the fuck up for a minute and comfortably share silence.In one of the most memorable scenes of Jean-Luc Godard's Bande à part (Band of Outsiders, 1964), Odile (Anna Karina), Franz (Sami Frey), and Arthur (Claude Brasseur) loiter and engage in idle chatter in a crowded café (as so often happens in films of the nouvelle vague). After an uncomfortable silence laced with ennui, Franz asserts: "Okay. If there's nothing left to say, let's have a minute of silence."1 Unimpressed by the recommendation, Odile bluntly retorts, "You can really be dumb sometimes." But Franz ... Read More

  • "Nobody Knows Anything": Professionalism and Publics in The Great Waldo
           Pepper
    • Abstract: "Nobody knows anything," the screenwriter William Goldman's oft-repeated aphorism about Hollywood, has achieved the status of an incontrovertible truth, as economic analyses of the American film industry have confirmed that "the unpredictability of audience taste is no myth."1 Goldman initially made this claim about unpredictable audiences to sketch the dire circumstances wrought by an industrywide recession between 1969 and 1971, during which the studios posted combined losses totaling more than $500 million.2 His account in Adventures in the Screen Trade also fits with industry rhetoric that was quick to blame a disastrous series of box-office flops—most notably, the apparent failure of old-fashioned, road-show ...

  • Retail Tales and Tribulations: Transmedia Brands, Consumer Products, and
           the Significance of Shop Talk
    • Abstract: In a 2012 interview, Maura Regan, senior vice president of global licensing for Sesame Workshop, explained the company's approach to merchandising characters like Elmo by likening retail to "just another medium for telling our brand's story."1 Regan conceded, however, that the consolidation of the retail market and the rise to power of big-box retailers like Walmart and Target posed challenges to the twenty-first-century business of licensing characters and entertainment brands. This was a common refrain among numerous heads of consumer product divisions whom I spoke with while researching this article. Rick Rekedal, former head of licensing and current global general manager for franchises for DreamWorks Animation ... Read More

  • In Focus: Film and Media Studies in the Anthropocene
    • Abstract: The West thinks it is the sole possessor of the clever trick that will allow it to keep on winning indefinitely, whereas it has perhaps already lost everything.A crisis tends to focus attention on the exigencies of the present moment, and our current environmental crisis is no exception. New warnings about the dangers of a warming world pass across social media and news headlines, providing daily reminders of rising sea levels, desertification, defaunation, extreme weather events, and the social and political instability that comes with them. Collective action must be taken immediately, we say; the time for change is now. But there is still time, we think. The catastrophe may be arriving more quickly, but it ... Read More

  • Cinema's Hot Chronology (5:29:21 Mountain War Time, July 16, 1945)
    • Abstract: In the history of film and media there are banner periods in which technology, aesthetics, and politics collide in especially striking ways. In the US context, we could rattle off years (e.g., 1896, 1927, 1946) that exemplify what James Chandler, borrowing from Claude Lévi-Strauss, calls "hot chronologies," dates that are overrepresented in historical accounts relative to both their duration and as compared with other periods that are "less eventful." The "thermometric metaphor," explains Chandler, has nothing to do with actual temperatures. In Lévi-Strauss's anthropology, hot chronologies emerge out of advanced "hot societies," those "in which time may be said to count and be counted" in the annals of world ... Read More

  • Cinema's Natural History
    • Abstract: In the name of recycling, this contribution attends to old film theories and films that are strangely attuned to a longue durée conceptualization of the Anthropocene, or the geological epoch in which humans have become a determinant factor in climatological and ecological change on a global scale.1 Selmin Kara has written insightfully on "anthropocenema" in reference to a cycle of contemporary films that allegorize the environmental degradation and accelerating extinction of the extreme present and even more extreme future.2 In developing natural history as an anthropocenematic genre, I expand its film historical scope and shift emphasis from a taxonomic categorization of shared textual properties to the ...

  • The Anthropocene's Nonindifferent Nature
    • Abstract: Writing of his arrival by ship in New York in Nonindifferent Nature, Soviet filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein expresses admiration for the vertical uplift of the Manhattan skyline as it appears over the horizon. The skyscrapers seem to him "like rocket missile explosions frozen in flight," which dramatically capture the "technical and material becoming" of American industrial prowess.1 The propulsive character of the city, not to be limited to these terrestrial heights, "takes airplanes and hurls them into the sky to conquer the stratosphere," as the blue sky "trembles" before this technological encroachment. On encountering this sight of skyscrapers coming into view, Eisenstein notes that one feels "that the earth is a ... Read More

  • Ecodiegesis: The Scenography of Nature on Screen
    • Abstract: The Anthropocene is a concept that reveals monsters. Among its many horrors is the catastrophic realization that climate change is an unintended consequence of industrialization. Another horror is its unpredictable time frame, with traumatic backstories and impending deadlines lurching in and out of view. Then there is the dread of uneven suffering: the terrible knowledge that, while everyone will be affected, those harmed first and worst are not the humans who are most responsible for creating this condition. These are monsters of such vast proportions we can hardly comprehend them, and we would not be off base in observing that some of their qualities are cinematic. Indeed, although the Anthropocene is more than ... Read More

  • Sinkholes
    • Abstract: A problem of scale plagues popular texts that try to visualize the environmental impact of humans. The harbingers of Earth's imminent ecological apocalypse occupy spaces and temporalities immeasurable within the idioms of conventional screen media. For example, the vast reach and submicroscopic effects of the dioxins resulting from trash incineration aren't easily rendered by the moving image.1 Environmental catastrophe doesn't fall into discrete parameters and thus challenges visual media with various phenomena that can't be narrativized in linear time-space trajectories. The limitless and the abyss collide in the spaces of the Anthropocene. In this context, a response to the problem of scale has opened up in the ... Read More

  • Reorientations; or, An Indigenous Feminist Reflection on the Anthropocene
    • Abstract: Destruction of homelands. Loss of kinship species. Exposure to deadly contaminants. Mass extinction. Transformed lifeways. In the face of these radical changes, a question lingers: How long will life be possible' Recently the academy has also felt the urgency of these environmental problems and proposed to address them within the framework of the term "the Anthropocene." Indigenous studies has offered various responses to the Anthropocene, some arguing that it has utility in framing the violence of colonialism and others critiquing the limitations and assumptions behind the "anthropos" in Anthropocene.1 Since contact, indigenous peoples of the Americas have dealt with an escalation of the forces of environmental ...

  • A Taste for Brown Sugar: Black Women in Pornography by Mireille
           Miller-Young (review)
    • Abstract: In her recent field assessment of pornography studies, Linda Williams argues that "pornography on film, video, or the internet is always two contradictory things at once: documents of sexual acts, and fantasies spun around knowing the pleasure or pain of those acts."1 This contradiction resides at the center of Mireille Miller-Young's A Taste for Brown Sugar: Black Women in Pornography, which questions hegemonic assumptions about black women's place in adult film history. Deftly and systematically dismantling stereotypes in her nuanced parsing of industrial structures, Miller-Young ultimately examines the topic as part of a much bigger trajectory of cultural racism and sexism. Mostly (and refreshingly) ... Read More

  • A Theory of Regret by Brian Price (review)
    • Abstract: The most important thing is the word that the title doesn't begin with. The second most important thing is the second word with which it does. I will not elaborate on those assertions until the end of my review. By then, something will have changed; these lines will look different.Brian Price's scholarship over the past decade and a half has been a patient demolishment of dogma. From his first monograph, Neither God nor Master, a work that unseats the vision of Robert Bresson as transcendental filmmaker, unconcealing a wholly new Bresson of radical politics; to his coeditorship of Color: The Film Reader, an influential collection that set in place a foundation for the, at the time, woefully neglected area of color ...

  • Aerial Aftermaths: Wartime from Above by Caren Kaplan (review)
    • Abstract: Drones lurk at the periphery of Caren Kaplan's new book on the history of aerial imagery; their presence is felt rather than seen. The structure of the book reinforces this feeling, as the introduction situates us in the present by diving into aerial photographs of 9/11, and the afterword discusses the questions the book raises about aerial views in modernity in the context of unmanned aerial vehicles (known as UAVs), or drones. The author even professes that the "entire project of this book is a prologue to considering the observational and sensing capacities of machines like drones."1 But what one realizes after reading Aerial Aftermaths is that even if Kaplan never mentioned drones, a contemporary reader would ...

  • Lewd Looks: American Sexploitation Cinema in the 1960s by Elena Gorfinkel
           (review)
    • Abstract: For all the attention to gender and sexuality in American film history over the past forty years or so, sexploitation—the hundreds of rapidly produced films promising ever more scintillating exposés of female flesh, suburban sin, and urban perversion between 1959 and 1972—have received surprisingly little scholarly attention. Although popular with a devoted set of enthusiasts, collectors, and filmmakers, sexploitation films are either written out of or receive a modest paragraph in most American film histories. Even Eric Schaefer's magisterial work on classical American exploitation films ends with the rise of sexploitation, and Linda Williams's foundational Hard Core slides directly from the stag film to the ...

  • Documentary across Disciplines ed. by Erika Balsom and Hila Peleg (review)
    • Abstract: Documentary across Disciplines offers a provocative, well-curated cross-disciplinary collection of writings that redefine the idea of the documentary beyond its usual confines in film studies. This inspiring work—edited by the London-based film scholar Erika Balsom and the Berlin-based Hila Peleg, a curator, filmmaker, and artistic director of the Berlin Documentary Forum—provides a reading experience that fulfills its promise to expand the concept of documentary beyond filmmaking. It includes topics related to the representation of actuality, evidence, and indexicality for a twenty-firstcentury context. Works explore how postcolonial subjectivity and new understandings of agency relate to a wide range of forms of ... Read More
