  • The Screen Is Red: Hollywood, Communism, and the Cold War by Bernard F.
           Dick (review)
    • Abstract: During the House of Representatives Committee on Un-American Activities - or HUAC - investigations of Hollywood in 1947, chairman J. Parnell Thomas told journalists that he had a media bombshell. He would link the investigation of communism in the film industry to the leaking of atomic secrets to the Russians. Journalists were intrigued and showed up in droves to find it was a media stunt and Thomas had nothing. Hollywood, communism and nuclear fears proved to be an irresistible lure for journalists in the 1940s, and they remain a fascinating topic for film historians. The political cinema of this turbulent period and its impact is the focus of a new book by Bernard F. Dick, a prolific writer on the film industry. ... Read More

  • Politicking and Emergent Media: US Presidential Elections of the 1890s by
           Charles Musser (review)
    • Abstract: American political historians have often attempted to identify those presidents who adopted new media outlets to express their messages effectively: Franklin D. Roosevelt and radio, John F. Kennedy and television, and Donald J. Trump and Twitter. Trump has himself described his tweets as being “modern day presidential.” 1 Charles Musser’s latest book, Politicking and Emergent Media: US Presidential Elections of the 1890s, explores the late nineteenth-century embrace of communication technologies like the phonograph, the stereopticon and the motion picture in four presidential campaigns (1888, 1892, 1896, and 1900), thus making a major contribution to the fields of Film Studies, Media Archaeology, American Studies ...

  • Animating the Science Fiction Imagination by J. P. Telotte (review)
    • Abstract: J.P. Telotte’s Animating the Science Fiction Imagination explores the role of pre-World War II cinematic animation in forming the science fiction genre. The associations between the two, Telotte suggests, have been somewhat neglected in contemporary scholarship. Animation and science fiction not only share a similar modernist orientation, but the industrialization of American cartooning and the emergence of science fiction in the form of pulps and serials occurred almost simultaneously. Telotte thus explores the body of pre-war United States animation that directly engages with science fiction, or what by the 1950s we would come to understand as typical science fiction themes. He identifies four science fiction ... Read More

  • The Hagiography of Nat Turner in The Birth of a Nation (review)
    • Abstract: Hagiography seldom results in great—or even good—literature, and history is its enemy. The hagiographer simplifies, purifies, elevates, idealizes; he erases, burkes, attenuates, equivocates, so that his subject emerges as an object of pristine ideological veneration, assuring and inspiring the faithful. As the word indicates (“hagios” is Greek for “sacred”), hagiography is a religious act, often repudiating historical fact rather than testing itself against it. In The Birth of a Nation (2016), Nate Parker, the film’s writer-director-actor, sets out to beatify Nat Turner, the leader of a short-lived slave revolt in Southampton County, Virginia in 1831, in which 55 people, mostly women and children, were killed. So ... Read More

  • Chappaquiddick by John Curran (review)
    • Abstract: Around 12:45 AM on the night of July 18, 1969, a black 1967 Oldsmobile sedan plunged off a bridge on the resort island of Martha’s Vineyard, five miles off the southern coast of Massachusetts. The car was registered to, and driven by, Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy: junior senator from Massachusetts, younger brother of a martyred president and presidential hopeful, and last surviving son of Boston tycoon and political kingmaker Joseph P. Kennedy. It landed on its roof in the slow-flowing creek beneath the bridge, submerged in 6–8 feet of water. Kennedy somehow extricated himself from the sunken car, and survived. The other occupant of the car, former Robert F. Kennedy campaign worker Mary Jo Kopechne, drowned. A passing ... Read More

  • Dawson City: Frozen Time by Bill Morrison (review)
    • Abstract: Bill Morrison’s films revel in decrepitude, pairing damaged old strips of nitrate film stock with moody, minimalist scores to create a vision of the distant past at once plaintive and terrifying. Beyond Zero: 1914–1918 (2014) literalizes the destruction of war by incorporating actual decayed battle footage from World War I, while The Great Flood (2012) and The Highwater Trilogy (2006) render natural disasters stark and implacable with minimal contextualization. 2002’s Decasia may be the purest example of the Morrison aesthetic. Traces of damage from water, fire, decomposition, and decades of neglect infect the frame like a hyperactive disease, generating optical illusions that other productions spend thousands of ...

  • American Made by Doug Liman (review)
    • Abstract: Some people can never get past the image of Tom Cruise dancing around in his skivvies in 1983’s Risky Business. Granted, that was 34 years ago; he was only 21 then (he’s 55 now). In my view, Cruise was at his best in comedic or semi-comedic roles.Cruise makes a sort of return to form in American Made, directed by Doug Liman, a story based on the real-life exploits of CIA contract pilot Barry Seal, and does a remarkably competent job of it. He captures Seal’s blend of frat-boy insouciance, confusion, and fuck-it-all willingness to fly by the seat of his pants— literally. As Seal, he doesn’t seem to know what is going on most of the time but is willing to throw caution to the wind and see what happens. The results ... Read More

  • Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World by Catherine Bainbridge, Alfonso
           Maiorana (review)
    • Abstract: Who would have thought that after watching a music documentary about Native Americans’ influence on pop music that you would listen to Jackson Browne’s “Doctor My Eyes” completely differently. I did. And, so will you.Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World, is an enlightening and engaging film that will leave you with an appreciation for Native American musicians and their stories. Much like the Oscar-winning 20 Feet from Stardom (2013) a few years back, this film brings to the public eye little known history, stories and, more importantly, great music.From the early blues of Charley Patton, to the jazz stylings of vocalist Mildred Bailey, to Fred Lincoln “Link” Wray, and on to pop, folk, heavy metal, and hip-hop ...

  • Bad Times at the El Royale by Drew Goddard (review)
    • Abstract: Check in at the most bizarre hotel this side of Barton Fink, where a group of travelers gather for a night of confrontations, revelations, and gruesome violence. And speaking of the Coen Brothers, Bad Times is right out of their playbook. It’s a dangerous neo-noir set in the late 1960s. It’s a dark and stormy night. Lightning flashes fitfully illuminate the scene. The blood-stained guest register introduces a motley cast of characters. And despite the grim pleasures of it all, there’s a moment of grace that tops it all off at the end.There’s the priest who’s not a priest, but a thief and ex-con looking for buried money under the floorboards of one of the hotel’s rooms; a vacuum salesman who’s an FBI agent keeping ...

  • The Lady from Shanghai by Orson Welles (review)
    • Abstract: Orson Welles’s The Lady from Shanghai (1946) adheres to the Joycean establishment of Irish mythos weaved symbolically into a cinematic framework; the use of fantastical mythology to emphasize parabolic realism parallels the modernism in Ulysses, making Elsa reflective of contemporary standards through mythic references. As the temptress, Elsa’s thematic contributions through visual allusions adhere to social archetypes that victimize and villainize, using Irish mythology and traditional portrayal of women in art. The analogous essence of the feminine and the natural world demonstrated in Shakespearean literature contributes to cinematic practice in which the representation of the external world is reflective of the ...

  • Dirty Harry’s America: Clint Eastwood, Dirty Harry, and the Conservative
           Backlash by Joe Street (review)
    • Abstract: Countless words have already been expended on Dirty Harry (dir. Don Siegel, 1971) and its four film sequels, ranging from popular criticism to scholarly appraisals of their ideological aspects, including their seemingly simple yet often muddled representation of issues related to law and order; racial, sexual and economic politics; and ideas of national identity. Indeed, such is the level of interest generated by the franchise, it seems astonishing that it has taken a full forty-five years from Dirty Harry’s release for a sustained book-length study to pull together the key issues and debates the films have sparked.Happily, Street’s work proves worth the wait. Thorough, clearly structured, and incisive, it ... Read More

  • The Politics and Poetics of Cinematic Realism by Hermann Kappelhoff
           (review)
    • Abstract: In The Politics and Poetics of Cinematic Realism, Hermann Kappelhoff reaffirms the cultural significance of cinema by exploring how filmmakers from the 1920s avant-garde to the present-day relate to and reimagine their spectators’ sociopolitical contexts in an attempt to facilitate a more dynamic confrontation with reality. This spectatorial engagement, moreover, is necessarily political in that it aspires to remake the fabric of spectators’ lived experiences and social conditions.In chapter one, “Poetics and Politics,” Kappelhoff meticulously sketches a theoretical framework in which to situate his claims. Drawing on the work of Gilles Deleuze, Jacques Rancière, and Richard Rorty, Kappelhoff proceeds to unspool ... Read More

  • Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory by Elsie Walker, and:
           Sound: Dialogue, Music, and Effects ed. by Kathryn Kalinak
    • Abstract: Cinema has always been considered a modern spectacle of vision. But, although film substance consists of both sound and images, it is a fact that the aural dimensions of this audiovisual medium have been regularly disregarded in academic and journalistic reviews. On the other side, there have also been certain works that deal with the so-called “film musicology,” which tend to employ extremely specialized music-centred examples, comparisons and terminology that are mainly accessible only to a small number of musicology experts. Today, scholars wonder if there is an alternative: to put it simply, how can we apply cultural theories to film music and sound in order to better appreciate and explain films'Elsie Walker’s ...

  • British Rural Landscapes on Film ed. by Paul Newland (review)
    • Abstract: This fine collection of essays and interviews investigates the modes and significance of British rural landscape on screen within the history of British national cinema. It sets out to challenge heritage cinema’s representational paradigm of treating landscape as mere spectacle, and focuses instead on films in which the notion of the rural incorporates the depiction of the interconnectedness of land and its inhabitants. In its structure and arrangement the volume displays three strands of thought. First and foremost, it provides a chronological overview of the way British landscape was depicted from the earliest period of silent films to its recent renderings by Gideon Koppel and Patrick Keiller. Certain chapters ... Read More

  • The Fighting Sullivans: How Hollywood and the Military Make Heroes by
           Bruce Kuklick (review)
    • Abstract: Until March 23, 2018, I had not thought very much about the five Sullivan brothers—Joseph, Francis, Madison, Albert, and George—all of whom died on November 13, 1942 when their ship, Juneau, was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine during the Battle of Guadalcanal. That was the day that the New York Times reported that wreckage from the Juneau had been discovered in the South Pacific off the coast of the Solomon Islands. I was familiar with the 1944 film, The Sullivans, retitled The Fighting Sullivans, when the original title failed to draw the crowds that Twentieth Century-Fox anticipated. The poster for The Sullivans suggested a home front drama; the one for The Fighting Sullivans, a combat film with a ... Read More

  • Compound Cinematics: Akira Kurosawa and I by Shinobu Hashimoto (review)
    • Abstract: “A work’s quality is the author’s personality, and liking it or not a matter of taste”When Shinobu Hashimoto (b. 1918) shared this wisdom, he was in his late eighties and reflecting on a long and successful career in the Japanese film industry. The results of his reflection, Compound Cinematics: Akira Kurosawa and I, detail the collaborative screenplay-writing he did with Team Kurosawa, including Rashomon (1950), Ikiru (1952) and Seven Samurai (1954). Originally published in 2006 in Japan, it is an insightful foray into both Hashimoto and Kurosawa’s screenwriting philosophies and how the two men were initially attracted to each other and eventually drifted apart. It is also an honest portrait of an exciting period ... Read More

Kaplan presents her account of these new developments in an analysis grounded in trauma theory. She notes that while theorists have investigated post-traumatic syndrome, there is significantly less written about pretraumatic stress syndrome. Kaplan suggests that premonitions of future catastrophes have the potential to induce traumatic reactions. She argues that the ever-increasing presentation of dystopic futuristic worlds in contemporary film and literature expresses intense global anxiety regarding our planet’s future. She focuses, in particular, on concerns regarding the collapse of ... Read More

Dass identifies a challenge to the notion of Habermasian publics as arenas of social engagement, noting that a vision of the Indian city as a literate, urbane forum that conversed exclusively in print ignores the influence of uneducated populations and the subsequent modern crowd anxiety that constituted everyday life amongst film-going Indians ...

  • Girls Will Be Boys: Cross-Dressed Women, Lesbians, and American Cinema,
           1908–1934 by Laura Horak (review)
    • Abstract: If Marlene Dietrich in Morocco (Josef von Sternberg, 1930), Greta Garbo in Queen Christina (Rouben Mamoulian, 1933), and Katharine Hepburn in Sylvia Scarlett (George Cukor, 1936) are the cross-dressed women we know best in Hollywood cinema, they were certainly not the first. For Laura Horak in Girls Will Be Boys: Cross-Dressed Women, Lesbians, and American Cinema, 1908–1934, the status of these women in film history as early and unique representations of cross-dressing and lesbian desire tells us about common, false assumptions. Far from being rare, always transgressive, and the only code for lesbianism in American cinema, cross-dressed women before Dietrich, Garbo, and Hepburn were in fact given “multiple ... Read More

           by Simon Brown (review)
    • Abstract: The history of early British cinema is often depicted as one of struggle and sometimes of failure. Rachel Low, a pillar among British film historians, refers to it as a “humiliating period of stagnation” (1–2). In his part-biography, part-microhistory, Cecil Hepworth: and the Rise of the British Film Industry 1899–1911, Simon Brown reassesses the state of the British film industry in the Edwardian period. In the past, scholars like Low have blamed the industry itself for its difficulties without considering wider contexts. They tend to look at the industry as a whole and group all of the studios together without taking into account their many differences and particular experiences. This method has created easy ...

His monograph on the Hollywood war film is not the first book on this subject or even the first with this title, but he brings a more theoretically-informed and less historicist approach to bear on the topic than previous scholars. He draws thoughtfully on the best and best-known works on the topic, including those by Paul Virilio, Jeanine Basinger, and Robert Eberwein. Over the course of an introduction and four chapters, he works to elicit a new understanding of the war film genre and, in the process, of generic formation more generally. Yet the book is organized ... Read More

  • Representing Talent: Hollywood Agents and the Making of Movies by Violaine
           Roussel (review)
    • Abstract: Violaine Roussel’s Representing Talent: Hollywood Agents and the Making of Movies displays the unique role of talent agents in the media industry through a revealing and thorough ethnographic study. The Hollywood agent is a figure frequently shrouded in mystery, often only understood via shoddy film and television portrayals (e.g. Tootsie’s George Fields or Friends’ Estelle). These portrayals have led to the stereotyping of agents as greedy, ruthless, and parasitic. Even in academic circles, little attention has been paid to the role of the agent in the media industry as a whole. Roussel seeks to investigate this singular profession, a feat that she manages with sophistication by using 122 interviews, performed ... Read More

  • Los Angeles Documentary and the Production of Public History, 1958–1977
           by Joshua Glick (review)
    • Abstract: Los Angeles, California, home to Hollywood, would at first glance seem a most unlikely place for a robust alternative documentary film culture. It is almost as if the city has no corporeal existence apart from the world of magic and mirrors created by the Hollywood cinematic dream machine. But “L.A.” is a real place, and in this volume, Joshua Glick shows how during a roughly twenty-year period between the late Fifties and Seventies, a group of loosely affiliated contrarians working in the shadow of the major studios and production companies documented the lives and struggles of the everyday people of Los Angeles that go largely unnoticed by moviegoers and tourists.Poorly capitalized, under-publicized, and ...

           Barry Keith Grant, Malisa Kurtz (review)
    • Abstract: Each genre film, according to one of the most firmly established “rules” of film genre study, must exhibit qualities that determine its relationship to other examples in the genre. Barry Keith Grant and Malisa Kurtz’s Notions of Genre is no different. While claiming to be something unique, a study in genre through works written before the academic tradition (1970-) became firmly established, it also self-locates precisely within the types of writings one expects in a genre reader.Notions of Genre offers a compilation of essays on popular film from 1945 to 1970 that reflect an early and organic preoccupation with film genre theory, prior to its proper academic application. A distinguished film scholar well known for ... Read More

  • Douglas Sirk, Aesthetic Modernism and the Culture of Modernity by Victoria
           Evans (review)
    • Abstract: In the interviews Douglas Sirk granted at the end of his career, his early experience as a painter and theatrical director in Weimar Germany allowed him to augment his new reputation as a cinematic artist as well as a progressive social critic. While later studies have challenged any consistent view of him as a subversive auteur, many of the best have continued to combine aesthetic, historical, and political approaches in order to reassess his films within a fuller context. A recent book by Victoria Evans, which largely explores how Sirk’s melodramas are informed by key trends in modernist painting and architecture, offers a valuable contribution to Sirk scholarship by establishing its own links between the visual ...
