  • "I Got no Problem Killing My Kin": Fury (2014) and The Evolution of The
           World War II Combat Film
    • Abstract: The setting is April 1945, less than a month before the collapse of the Third Reich, but the Sherman tank nicknamed "Fury" has miles to go. Concerned that his replacement assistant tank driver lacks the brutal resolve to kill the enemy, Staff Sergeant Don "Wardaddy" Collier (Brad Pitt) drags Norman Ellison (Logan Lerman) to the site of a mass suicide of Nazi officials and their wives. The room is adorned with Nazi paraphernalia, and a regal portrait of the Führer looms over elegantly dressed corpses surrounded by champagne bottles. "Why did you bring me here'" asks Norman. "Ideals are peaceful," Wardaddy responds solemnly, "History is violent."1 This disturbing contrast at the heart of Fury (2014) might sound like ... Read More

  • Falling Into History: Vertigo (1958) and The Time Lapse of Character
    • Abstract: Alongside of modern evils, a whole series of inherited evils oppress us, arising from the passive survival of antiquated modes of production, with their inevitable train of social and political anachronisms. We suffer not only from the living, but from the dead. Le mort saisit le vif!The spectral illusions, shifting identities, and narrative ironies in Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo (1958) produce a spatial disorientation that, as I have argued in a previous essay, address significant problems of social class.2 Here I wish to move from space to time, addressing the subtler, but in many ways more provocative, temporal disorientations in Vertigo, all of which bear upon the film's extensive historical allusions.3The ...

  • "Free From the Blessings of Civilization": Native Americans In Stagecoach
           (1939) and Other John Ford Westerns
    • Abstract: The past two decades have seen a welcome exposure of the colonialist and frankly racist representations of Native Americans in classical cinema, and in many ways John Ford has appeared to present an easy target, particularly with John Wayne in the starring role. Frequently, however, this perspective is grounded less in detailed analyses of films like Stagecoach and The Searchers as audio-visual and ideological wholes than in relatively isolated responses to images and sequences. There is still a clear need for a more accurate examination of Ford's treatment of Native American peoples throughout the entire body of his Western films, and this article attempts to outline some key aspects of such an approach.At the ...

  • Gay Rights and The Reception of Dog Day Afternoon (1975)
    • Abstract: For its eccentric content, Dog Day Afternoon (Sidney Lumet, 1975) has some remarkable bragging rights. It starred Al Pacino, won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, and garnered Academy Award nominations for Best Picture, Director, Actor, Supporting Actor, and Film Editing. Boasting the seventh-highest box-office gross of 1976, this commercially successful motion picture featured openly gay characters the likes of whom had never been seen on screen. The film starts with a disarming title card: "What you are about to see is true—It happened in Brooklyn, New York, on August 22, 1972." That docudrama approach continues in an opening montage of drive-by, slice-of-life Brooklyn footage on a sweltering summer ... Read More

    • Abstract: Editors Jennie Carlsten and Fearghal McGarry explain in their introduction to Film, History and Memory that the project emerged out of collaboration between historian McGarry and a documentary team using his research to make a film about an Irish republican activist. In addition to cooperating on the film, the two groups also launched an interactive website and organized an academic conference with Carlsten that included film scholars, setting the stage for the interdisciplinary nature of the current volume of essays. Building on the ground made by similar multidisciplinary projects, such as the Blackwell Companion to the Historical Film (2013), edited by historian Robert Rosenstone and film studies scholar ...

  • The Nazi Past in Contemporary German Film: Viewing Experiences of Intimacy
           and Immersion by Axel Bangert (review)
    • Abstract: Axel Bangert's concise monograph describes German films released since 1990 that treat the Third Reich. It begins with one question these films posit: "What did it mean to experience the Third Reich'" (1). It ends with a pair: "What would I have become' Who are we now'" (169). In the space between these queries, a reunified Germany's redefinitions of itself and its engagement with the past through the transporting power of moving pictures are deftly explored.Bangert's prose is measured and textured. Three chapters frame films that focus on domestic interiors, seductive monstrosities, and immersive spectacles – the first and last of this trio are prefigured in the book's subtitle, Intimacy and Immersion. The German ... Read More

  • Steaming into a Victorian Future: A Steampunk Anthology eds. Julie Anne
           Taddeo and Cynthia J. Miller (review)
    • Abstract: For scholars and students of popular cultural forms, as well as counter-cultural enthusiasts, Steaming into a Victorian Future offers an engaging range of voices on the phenomenon of steampunk, a set of social practices, texts and objects that was propelled into the alternative literary, artistic and lifestyle scenes towards the end of the twentieth century. Whilst scholarship on this extraordinarily diverse category of self-expression is certainly established, not least Rebecca Onion's much-cited article in the inaugural issue of Neo-Victorian Studies, 'Reclaiming the Machine: An Introductory Look at Steampunk in Everyday Practice' (2008), Taddeo and Miller's edited collection allows the reader to look more ...

  • Sportswomen in Cinema: Film and the Frailty Myth by Nicholas Chare
           (review)
    • Abstract: Despite the monumental gains in women's athletics arising from the passage of Title IX over forty years ago, sporting women still rarely get their due on networks such as ESPN and Fox Sports. Unfortunately, a similar imbalance is evident in narrative films and documentaries on sports. A notable exception is Nicholas Chare's Sportswomen in Cinema: Film and the Frailty Myth. An art historian by training whose previous books examined Francis Bacon's paintings as well as Auschwitz and the abject, Chare brings a fresh, multidisciplinary approach to how women, and particularly sportswomen, are depicted in film.Each chapter covers a different sport: climbing, boxing, team sports, track and field, bodybuilding, tennis, and ...

  • Music for Silent Film: A Guide to North American Resources by Kendra
           Preston Leonard (review)
    • Abstract: One of the most commonly held misconceptions regarding cinematic history is that there was a so-called silent film period. To be sure, prior to the advent of sound-on-film technology (and Al Jolson's breaking of the sound barrier), film stock did not have the capacity to save a film's audio alongside its visual material for convenient synchronous exhibition. But that certainly doesn't mean that the cinematic experience existed in silence. Certainly, even from the dawn of film as a new medium—W.K.L. Dickson was experimenting with sound film a few short years after the first Edison camera tests were shot—there were efforts to provide audiences with a fuller experience, complete with (often synchronized) sound from a ...

  • Native Americans in the Movies: Portrayals from Silent Films to the
           Present by Michael Hilger (review)
    • Abstract: When Michael Hilger published From Savage to Nobleman: Images of Native Americans in Film in 1995, the United States of America was still recovering from the post-celebration blues of the quincentenary of the arrival of Christopher Columbus to the American continent. The first years of the decade witnessed a resurgence of Native protests about the American Holocaust, as some Native scholars have called it, and its problematic celebration. The film industry, which is always a measure of the social temperature, released several key Indian-themed movies with huge success. Thus, at that time, Hilger's book was a necessary shout-out to those who had suddenly discovered Native Americans in movies.Twenty years later it ... Read More

  • Refocus: The Films of Delmer Daves eds. by Matthew Carter, Andrew Patrick
           Nelson (review)
    • Abstract: In The American Cinema (Dutton, 1968), Andrew Sarris' controversial hierarchy of directors, Delmer Daves is relegated to the "Lightly Likeable" category reserved for "talented but uneven directors with the saving grace of unpretentiousness" (171) such as Michael Curtiz, Henry Hathaway, and Mitchell Leisen. Daves should have been flattered to be numbered among the directors of Casablanca (1942), The House on 92nd St. (1945), and Easy Living (1937). Unpretentious Daves was, but not unprofound, as the ten essays in this excellent collection proves. Actually, there are eleven. The editors modestly refer to their joint article as an "Introduction," in which they make a case for Daves as an auteur with a vision that he ... Read More

  • Postfeminism and the Fatale Figure in Neo-Noir Cinema by Samantha Lindop
           (review)
    • Abstract: Lindop's collection of essays, Postfeminism and the Fatale Figure in Neo-Noir Cinema, is a significant addition to the ongoing dialogue surrounding third-wave feminism and noir cinema. Historically grounded, with ample coverage of other scholars in the field (Janey Place, E. Ann Kaplan, Tanya Modeski, and Hannah Hamad to name a few), Lindop's research and analysis opens the door to a new dark alley of film noir investigation. Although many of the essays were published previous to this collection, they form a cohesive whole that never fails to engage readers with its original insights and clever, clean writing style.Lindop's definition of postfeminism is essential to her interpretation of neo-noir. She claims that ... Read More

    • Abstract: Having debuted before American television audiences on September, 1966, Star Trek is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary as a pop culture phenomenon, as audiences all over the world instantly recognize its characters, its extended universe, and its lexicon. Star Trek eventually became a television franchise comprised of five series: Star Trek: The Original Series (1966-1969); Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987-1994); Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993-1999); Star Trek: Voyager (1995-2001); and Star Trek: Enterprise (2001-2005). While the original series struggled with low ratings through three seasons on network television, the franchise went on to achieve a second life and an unprecedented level of success ... Read More

  • World Film Locations: Liverpool eds. by Jez Conolly and Caroline Whelan
           (review)
    • Abstract: Liverpool, a city on the Northwestern coast of England, is a place of profound dualities. As a thriving port city and center of industry, it was an essential gateway to the Empire (and the rest of the world). It has a large immigrant population, including the closest connection to Ireland of any city in England. Its people enjoyed the riches of the Industrial Revolution and were early witnesses to the marvels of modernity: the railway, electric lighting, and cinema. By the era of Margaret Thatcher (the late 1970s and early 1980s), however, Liverpool loomed large as a symbol of decline. With a retreat of heavy industries and reduced importance for trade, the city reeled under high unemployment. Continued sectarian ... Read More

  • Dolce Vita Confidential: Fellini, Loren, Pucci, Paparazzi, and the
           Swinging High Life of 1950s Rome by Shawn Levy (review)
    • Abstract: Levy's Dolce Vita reads like a well-researched and well-written tabloid. Fittingly, it begins with a photographer, Tazio Secchiaroli, or Il Mitragliatrice Umana ("The Human Machine Gun"), as he trolls the streets of trendy Via Veneto in Rome camera in hand, searching for movie stars in compromising positions. He finds the regulars: exiled Egyptian King Farouk gorging himself in a cafe, Ava Gardner clubbing with her new co-star and lover, Tony Franciosa, and Swedish actress Anita Ekberg and husband, Anthony Steel, who becomes so provoked by shutterbug Secchiaroli that he drunkenly charges at him. A typical night for paparazzi in 1950s Rome. Levy follows this prologue with more sobering historical background on ... Read More

  • Hollywood Riots: Violent Crowds and Progressive Politics in American Film

    • Abstract: Doug Dibbern's excellent new book analyzes the importance of political filmmakers who questioned American postwar conservatism by releasing films in the early 1950s about race riots and the dangers of right wing reporting. Dibbern beautifully interweaves history, the politics of the film industry and the power of the films themselves to inform his analysis of the rapidly changing politics and demographic shifts during this era. He argues that independent filmmakers and writers drew from real local events to explicitly challenge the media's tendency to literally whitewash stories about racial violence and union riots as well as Hollywood's increasing complicity with the growing conservative cultural climate which ...

  • Reconstructing Violence: The Southern Rape Complex in Film and Literature
           by Deborah E. Barker (review)
    • Abstract: During the Jim Crow era, all-white juries and white vigilantes defended white supremacy by using the southern rape complex to justify violence against African American men in the name of protecting the so-called honor and purity of white women. Court-ordered executions and lynch mobs killed thousands of black men in the 19th and 20th Centuries, who were accused of raping or even flirting with white women. The southern rape complex vilified black men as rapists and threats to southern culture, and provided white men a discourse to support the actions they took to reinforce white male privilege and racial hierarchy. In Reconstructing Violence, Deborah Barker shows how variations of the southern rape complex in ... Read More

  • Mussolini's Dream Factory: Film Stardom in Fascist Italy by Stephen Gundle
           (review)
    • Abstract: In Mussolini's Dream Factory: Film Stardom in Fascist Italy Stephen Gundle examines how the Italian movie industry created its own star system as a counterpart to Hollywood's. American movies came to dominate Italian screens after the virtual collapse of the domestic film industry in the 1920s. In response, Benito Mussolini's fascist government began to subsidize film production as part of the regime's industrial and cultural strategy. This new partnership between the Italian government and the film industry would lead to the construction of what would become Cinecittà. The new state of the art production center in Rome was deemed important enough for Mussolini himself to attend the laying of its cornerstone in ... Read More

  • The Many Lives of Cy Endfield: Film Noir, the Blacklist and Zulu by Brian
           Neve (review)
    • Abstract: One would have to be a scholar of the blacklist to speak authoritatively about Cy Endfield. Although Jonathan Rosenbaum wrote appreciatively about him in "Pages from the Endfield File" (Film Comment, November-December 1993), Endfield is largely unknown except to B movie buffs. He never experienced the notoriety of the Hollywood Ten or was granted the privilege accorded to Carl Foreman, whom HUAC allowed to testify about himself without naming names, which in 1956 was unprecedented. When Enfield decided to purge himself in 1960, he was not that fortunate. To those who have written about HUAC's witnesses, friendly and otherwise, Endfield is just a name. Thanks to Neve, a name has been given a life, and a shadow has ... Read More

  • Bad Seeds and Holy Terrors: The Child Villains of Horror Film by Dominic
           Lennard (review)
    • Abstract: Over the course of his energetic book, Bad Seeds and Holy Terrors: The Child Villains of Horror Film, Dominic Lennard examines those pint-sized, flinty-eyed child villains so popular in horror cinema through a variety of lenses. In discussing Damien, the satanic villain of The Omen (1976), Lennard invokes a discourse of patriarchal anxieties; a chapter on Rhoda of The Bad Seed (1956) situates this bourgeois murderer within an analysis of class hierarchies; long, dark-haired Samara of The Ring (2002) generates an analysis of gender inequalities and a critique of cultural prejudices against working mothers. Even from this brief summary, it is clear that Lennard's text aims to cover a lot of ground. While much of this ... Read More

Bowdoin Van Riper have assembled a diverse collection of essays exploring the intersections of war narratives with tales of vampires, ghosts, and zombies. Along with their contributors, they turn a critical eye on novels, films, and other narratives in which revenants or the walking dead are the enemy, conflicted allies, or the vengeful returned. Along the way, they unearth a host of lesser-known narratives, imaginative tales of conflict, violence, heroism, and redemption, from vampire flying aces to possessed machines or war to wronged and vengeful spirits. ...

  • Political Fellini: Journey to the End of Italy by Andrea Minuz (review)
    • Abstract: By the "political" in his title, Andrea Minuz does not mean "ideological." Fellini was neither a DeSica nor a Passolini. He hated Communism and, as Minuz suggests in an appendix in which he quotes from correspondence between the director and the Italian prime minister Giulio Andreotti, Fellini was sympathetic to the Catholic and centrist Christian Democracy Party, of which Andreotti was head. Fellini, as Minuz argues, was a mythmaker, who created an Italian identity out of ancient rituals, mostly Catholic in origin, that never disappeared but left their traces in such scenes as the procession in Nights of Cabiria (1957) and its transmogrification in Roma (1972), the Madonna sighting in La Dolce Vita (1960), and the ...
