  • Poland Daily: Economy, Work, Consumption and Social Class in Polish Cinema
           by Ewa Mazierska (review)
    • Abstract: Poland Daily, Ewa Mazierska's extensive new study of Polish cinema, is a bold and welcome act of revisionism in the field of Eastern European cinemas. Its freshness of perspective applies most obviously to its chief critical objective, which is to retell the history of Polish screen imagery 'from below', that is, with regard to the representation of the lives – and, above all, livelihoods – of ordinary Polish citizens. In a striking departure from the traditional emphasis on Polish film's preoccupation with war, defeat, and the more lavish tragedies of history, the characters who populate Mazierska's book are not resistance fighters, martyrs or soldiers, but manual labourers, technicians, functionaries, small-time ...

  • Science Fiction Cinema and 1950s Britain: Recontextualizing Cultural
           Anxiety by Matthew Jones (review)
    • Abstract: Though the first science fiction films can be traced back to the 1890s it was not until the 1950s that science fiction emerged as a full-fledged cinematic genre in its own right. No small factor in this was the ways in which it served as a Rorschach test of the fears of the postwar era, from the nightmare of nuclear annihilation in movies like The Day the Earth Stood Still (Robert Wise, 1951) to concerns about infiltration reflected in such films as The Thing (From Another World) (Christian Nyby, 1951). While these films embodied the vision of the predominantly American casts and crews who produced them primarily with a national audience in mind, their distribution internationally ensured that they were interpreted ...

  • 1968 and Global Cinema ed. by Christina Gerhardt and Sara Saljoughi
           (review)
    • Abstract: Published to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of a watershed moment in twentieth-century political conflict, the impressive 1968 and Global Cinema seeks to broaden contemporary understanding of that moment beyond the French student uprisings, corresponding movements in the U.S., and the New Wave cinema explicitly invested in those struggles. In fact, editors Christina Gerhardt and Sara Saljoughi call into question the very idea of a historical moment, explaining in their introduction that many of volume's essays take the view of a "long 1968," examining events and films that pre and post- date that calendar year (2). The intended corrective is therefore temporal, but also geographical, illuminating ... Read More

  • L.A. Private Eyes by Dahlia Schweitzer (review)
    • Abstract: The loner-turned-criminal holds an important place in the noir tradition – think of Fred McMurray as Walter Neff in Double Indemnity (1944). When such character types are central to a film, viewers get a sense of their psychology and unique perspective on crime, leading us to root for them and learn more about their motivations. But the private eye, in other noirs like The Big Sleep (1946), slowly unravels a criminal undertaking to reveal the truth. This "unofficial" avenger, who works separately from the police, the subject of distrust in many films noir, detects with more instinct and willpower than logic. Noir on page and screen has its share of New York stories and even some set in London (1950's Night and the ... Read More

  • Jojo Rabbit
    • Abstract: From the opening bars of the Beatles German language version of "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" (Ich möchte deine Hand halten), you know you are in for a genre-blending, mind blowing snarky pop powered treat. Jojo Rabbit is candidly Taika Waititi's latest offering in his quest to supplant all his predecessors as the master of satire. A pastiche of several directors' worth of style and trademarked signatures, Jojo Rabbit is a wonderful dark comedic satire set during the last days of the Third Reich.Adapted from the novel, Caging Skies (Christine Leunen 2008), Jojo Rabbit seeks to present us a totalitarian, fascist regime as we have rarely experienced it before: through the eyes of an 11-year- old boy. Jojo (Roman Griffin ... Read More

  • Peterloo
    • Abstract: Peterloo opens on a different -loo altogether than the one its title enshrines: the battlefield of Waterloo in 1815, the closing act of the long revolutionary and Napoleonic wars that enmeshed Britain and France for over two decades after France's revolutionary regime beheaded its king. Amid the confused carnage and wreckage of the battle's closing moments, we watch a dazed and confused young British bugler blink and bumble about the ravaged landscape, occasionally tooting out a feeble bugle call.

  • Red Joan
    • Abstract: A grandmotherly British woman prunes the plants in her garden and then steps back into her tidy semi-detached home—thinking, perhaps, of a cup of tea. She glances at a newspaper on the table, a headline of which announces the death of Sir William Mitchell, a man her age and the former head of the Foreign Office. There is a knock on the door, and a look of anxiety flits across her face. She composes herself, answers the door, and the reason for her fleeting look of terror becomes clear: The doorstep is lined with police officers, who place her under arrest for espionage and lead her to an unmarked car waiting at the curb.These opening scenes set the tone for Red Joan, a film based on Jennie Rooney's 2013 novel that ...

  • The Irishman
    • Abstract: An old man looks back on a life of crime. There is something beautifully elegiac about Martin Scorsese's film The Irishman. As well as recounting the tale of the enigmatic Frank Sheeran (played by Robert DeNiro) looking back on his career in organized crime, it brings together many of the thematic and formal elements that have come to define a Scorsese film. This film presents a multi-layered and subtle treatment of faith, the Mafia, family, friendship, and loyalty in a manner that pushes boundaries, while being familiar to those who know Scorsese's work. The film is astonishing in its sensitive treatment of Frank's competing and divergent worlds. As well as its cinematic importance, it offers both an insightful ... Read More

  • The Aftermath
    • Abstract: "They're not like us," warns a Briton in a German cafe, echoing propaganda shown to Allied forces before they entered post-World War II occupation zones. Anyone familiar with postwar history knows this skepticism quickly gave way to fraternization between Allied occupiers and Germans. The Aftermath (2019) illustrates this change through Rachel Morgan (Keira Knightley), a British colonel's wife, who joins her husband, Lewis (Jason Clarke), stationed in Hamburg. They self-consciously inhabit the requisitioned house of an architect (Aleksander Skarsgaard) and his daughter, Freda (Flora Thiemann), whom Lewis allows to stay. Rachel loathes the Germans for the death of her son, who died during the bombing of Britain. Her ... Read More

  • Downton Abbey
    • Abstract: For six seasons (ITV, 2010-15), the world fell in love with the aristocratic Crawley family and their household staff featured in the ITV production Downton Abbey. At the height of its popularity, as many as 15 million viewers tuned in to a Sunday evening episode, and visitors to Highclere Castle, the model and setting for the series, continue to number at 50,000 a year. Downton Abbey-branded teas, china, jewelry, makeup, ornaments, stuffed dogs, and cookbooks, among other items, have allowed fans to consume this series in multiple ways long after it bade farewell in 2015. Since it first aired in 2010, Downton Abbey has become a crucial part of TV history, heralding a new "golden age" of the period drama genre not ... Read More

  • The Circus
    • Abstract: "Friday, I tasted life," Emily Dickinson wrote to a friend in May 1866. "It was a vast morsel. A circus passed by the house—I still feel the red in my mind, though the drums are out." Red and drums, the poet's deft shorthand for the indescribable spectacle that rolled through the streets of Amherst, Massachusetts on that long-ago spring morning, capture the essence of the American circus. It is bold and brash, vibrant and percussive, immersive and overwhelming. It is exoticism incarnate, rolling through the countryside on a thousand wheels, capable of turning the heads even of jaded city-dwellers and making even the vibrant greens of the New England countryside in springtime feel as bland as the sepia-toned bookend ...

  • Burning
    • Abstract: It has been nearly a decade since Korean director Lee Chang-Dong directed his two hallmark works: 2010's Poetry and 2007's Secret Sunshine. Dong's artistic reputation has rested comfortably with those film's nuanced character studies, but also with his subtle use of genre, in particular the tropes of crime thrillers. Abductions and death frame and influence each film, but these genre elements are not so much explosive plot developments as quiet shocks that push Dong's characters to deeper introspection and understanding. Using this genre – filled with investigations, authority figures and a searching structure, Dong has also subtle scrutinized wider issues of control, power and privilege in modern Korean ...

  • Two Takes On Harriet
    • Abstract: Kasi Lemmons, director of the haunting Southern Gothic family drama Eve's Bayou (1997), had spent years trying to bring the story of Harriet Tubman to the big screen. Her resulting film is a fantastic genre-mash up of biographical, super-hero, action, and dramatic film that remains hauntingly relevant to today's political climate in the States.Cynthia Erivo plays Harriet Tubman, born Araminta "Minty" Ross. For Erivo's performance alone, the film is more than worth watching. She so aptly embodies and expresses the emotional evolution from the character, from run-away slave to Civil War hero. (As a British actor, Erivo faced criticism for portraying an "American" hero. No doubt, there lies strong racialized/gendered ... Read More

  • Editor's Introduction
    • Abstract: Why do we publish "reviews" of books and films, especially when reviews litter the Web' Perhaps the question contains its own answer. Scholarly reviews are actually in short supply. The public imagination consumes piles of opinions, but what is an "informed" opinion, and why does it matter' Students write papers that make claim after claim, but those claims often go untested by credible evidence. Even prospective contributors to prestigious journals submit articles for publication but fail to practice the very lessons of evidence that, presumably, those authors might be asked to teach their students. Evidence matters as long as democracy matters—as long as convincing others is more valuable than is coercing ... Read More

  • High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Making of an American Classic
           by Glenn Frankel, and: The Broadcast 41: Women and the Anti-Communist
           Blacklist by Carol A. Stabile (review)
    • Abstract: Two recent studies of the mid-century blacklists in U.S. film and broadcasting, Glenn Frankel's High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Making of an American Classic and Carol A. Stabile's The Broadcast 41: Women and the Anti-Communist Blacklist, contribute in important ways to the ongoing project of recovering lost and repressed narratives from the Second Red Scare. Recasting the politics of the era through the perspectives and experiences of individual industry workers, these books illuminate the ways in which cultural works were shaped by and resisted the mandates of the emergent anti- communist movement of the postwar period. Both works interweave biography with social, industrial, and political history, but ... Read More

  • Bollywood in Britain: Cinema, Brand, Discursive Complex by Lucia
           Krämer (review)
    • Abstract: Public awareness of Bollywood, the world of popular Hindi cinema, has slowly but surely grown during the past few decades, and although this increase in recognition must clearly be seen as a global phenomenon, there are significant differences between the ways individual countries and social groups view this exciting universe. Lucia Krämer's thorough examination of the state of affairs in Britain is therefore not only an excellent addition to the already available academic writings on Bollywood, but it also offers a timely investigation into a previously unexplored aspect of this complex field.Even though Bollywood as a term has long become common currency both in popular and academic discourse, the author points ...

  • Archiveology: Walter Benjamin and Archival Film Practices by Catherine
           Russell (review)
    • Abstract: There are two constitutive problems at the heart of Catherine Russell's 2018 book. Archiveology: Walter Benjamin and Archival Film Practices. The first is a definitional one, motivating Russell to return again and again to declarative statements intended to articulate just what 'archiveology' is and how it functions. For Russell, "archiveology is above all a means of returning to the images of the past that were produced to entertain, or produced for more serious purposes of documentary recording, and reviewing them for new ways of making history come alive in new forms."1 She explains: "Etymologically, archiveology might mean the study of archives, but the Greek suffix '-ology' actually refers to someone who ...

  • The Colour Fantastic: Chromatic Worlds of Silent Cinema ed. by Giovanna

This collection of 12 essays is interdisciplinary in nature and crosses theoretical domains to also document practical and archival praxis done since 2015. This volume captures a selection of essays originally presented at the conference, "The Colour Fantastic: Chromatic Worlds of Silent Cinema," that took place in 2015 at Amsterdam's EYE Filmmuseum. This conference celebrated ... Read More

  • Celluloid War Memorials: The British Instructional Films Company and the
           Memory of the Great War by Mark Connelly (review)
    • Abstract: Books about British Second World War cinema and British film representations of that war have for a long time been more prominent, and produced in larger numbers, than their equivalents relating to the First World War. No doubt this relates to the firmly established popular memory of the Second World War, and the cinema associated with it, as Britain's 'finest hour', compared to more negative ingrained assumptions about the 1914-18 war. The centenary of the First World War, however, has further encouraged emerging new scholarship on British production of cinema during the war and subsequent British film representations of it.

  • Disposable Passions: Vintage Pornography and the Material Legacies of
           Adult Cinema by David Church (review)
    • Abstract: While going through a collection of sexploitation film fan magazines as part of my PhD dissertation research, I was flummoxed by a number of photo spreads supposedly taken on the sets of films I'd never heard of and couldn't find any information about. It wasn't until reading David Church's Disposable Passions: Vintage Pornography and the Material Legacies of Adult Cinema (Bloomsbury, 2016), that I realized these films had, in fact, been invented. Church explains that a few adult magazines of the 1960s and 70s would recycle production stills from different films (or use newly shot photographs), combining them with a phony synopsis for a film that never existed. In so doing, he argues, these magazines underscored ... Read More

  • Everybody Sing! Community Singing in the American Picture Palace by Esther
           M. Morgan-Ellis (review)
    • Abstract: Community singing as part of the program at a typical movie palace in the silent era was so common that film historians have never examined it in detail. Professor Morgan-Ellis has now provided the definitive study of a phenomenon similar to Emerson's "Over-Soul," a collective spirit arising out of a shared experience that unites an audience and turns an auditorium of individuals into a vibrant organism. But the community sing-along is only part of her extraordinary study. She has also researched exhibition practices in Chicago in the late 1920s, and by an exhaustive study of the trades has been able to reconstruct a typical program at a 1927 movie palace, a boon to anyone who has wondered what movie going was like ...

  • Melodrama Unbound: Across History, Media, and National Cultures ed. by
           Christine Gledhill and Linda Williams (review)
    • Abstract: The critical history of melodrama has been wrought with just as much suffering and misunderstanding as we can find in a stereotypical melodramatic plotline, and for a long time, the term itself was used with derision and contempt, identifying melodrama with cheap and exaggerated displays of excessive emotions in formulaic plots, targeting the weaker sex. In the past few decades, however, with more scholarly attention directed at this exciting and surprisingly endemic mode, both the critical and popular appreciation of melodrama have begun to change. Yet, as Melodrama Unbound illustrates, there is still much to do before we may claim to comprehend the concept in its entirety.The volume is not the first one trying to ... Read More
