about this book

The 1990s saw the emergence of a new kind of American cinema, which this book calls the “newbrutality film.” Violence and race have been at the heart of Hollywood cinema since its birth, but the newbrutality film was the first kind of popular American cinema to begin making this relationship explicit. The rise of this cinema coincided with the rebirth of a longneglected strand of film theory, which seeks to unravel the complex relations of affect between the screen and the viewer. This book analyses and connects both of these developments, arguing that films like Falling Down, Reservoir Dogs, Se7en and Strange Days sought to reanimate the affective impact of white Hollywood cinema by miming the power of AfricanAmerican and particularly hiphop culture. The book uses several films as casestudies to chart these developments: Intellect Books Ltd; April 2005 ISBN 9781841509266 Read online, or download in secure PDF or secure EPUB format Title: The New Brutality Film Author: Paul Gormley Imprint: Intellect Subject categories Academic Business > Industries > Entertainment Media > Film Performing Arts > Film > History & Criticism Humanities Computers > Information Technology Media > Media, Communication and Cultural Studies Performing Arts > Motion Pictures > Motion pictures Social Science > Social Issues ISBNs 1841509264 9781841501192 9781841509266
