Nancy Meyers

Peter Jackson

Deborah Jermyn, Roehampton University, UK

Alfio Leotta, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

Adapted by adaptor

Nancy Meyers proposes that Meyers' box-office success, the consistency of style and theme across her films, and the breadth of her body of work as a writer/producer/director across more than three decades at the forefront of Hollywood, (thus importantly bridging the second/third waves of feminism) make her a key contemporary US filmmaker. Structured to meet the needs of both the student and scholar, Jermyn's volume situates Deborah Meyers within this historical and critical context, exploring key collaborative relationships and new ways of watching her films.

The Cinema of Norman Mailer

Adapted by adaptor

Peter Jackson is the first book to combine an extensive biography of the New Zealand moviemaker with an in-depth critical analysis of his films, thus providing readers with the most comprehensive examination of Jackson's body of work. Leotta connects the examination of Jackson's work and career to significant academic debates, including the relationship between national cinema and global Hollywood; global dispersion of film production and transnational cinema; the relationship between film authorship and industrial modes of production; the redefinition of genre conventions; the impact of the creative industries on the construction of national identity; and new developments in film technology.

Film is Like Death Edited by Justin Bozung, Freelance Writer, Georgia, USA Adapted by adaptor

The Cinema of Norman Mailer: Film is Like Death not only examines the enfant terrible writer’s thoughts on cinema, but also features interviews with Norman Mailer, previously published essays, and newly commissioned essays by an array of scholars, enthusiasts, and those with a personal connection to Mailer. By re-examining Mailer's cinema through these new perspectives, one may not just be awarded a deeper understanding of Mailer's desire to make films, but also find a new, alternative vision of Mailer himself.

The Global Auteur The Politics of Authorship in 21st Century Cinema Edited by Seung-hoon Jeong, New York University Abu Dhabi, UAE & Jeremi Szaniawski, Independent Scholar, New Zealand Adapted by adaptor

“This ambitious collection fills a glaring gap in studies of cinematic authorship in the 21stcentury. It was about time for the creative contribution of the film director to be reassessed from a global perspective, away from hierarchical canons and in light of the radical changes entailed to film production by the widespread use of the digital technology. In the age of social media, where the individual merges into the general and anyone can ‘author’ a film, the role of the battered but resilient auteur may be, as the editors rightly say, more crucial and relevant than ever.” Lúcia Nagib, Professor in Film, University of Reading, UK UK December 2017 • US December 2017 • 416 pages • 40 bw illus PB 9781501338564 • £28.99 / $39.95 Previously published in HB 9781501312625 Individual eBook 9781501312656 • £86.99 / $107.99 Library eBook 9781501312649 Bloomsbury Academic


The Late Films of Claude Chabrol Genre, Visual Expressionism and Narrational Ambiguity Jacob Leigh, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK Adapted by adaptor

As a member of the French New Wave group of filmmakers who first came to prominence at the end of the 1950s, Claude Chabrol has received the least amount of critical and scholarly attention. Jacob Leigh fills this lacuna by focusing on the last nine feature films of Chabrol’s career, exploring his imagery, camerawork, use of sound and music, and performances, revealing the stylistic characteristics of his films while identifying the fundamental thematic issues that lie at the heart of his career-length exploration of the relationship between individuals and societies.

“[A] pioneering Alphavilleproduct of Aronofsky scholarship ... Skorin-Kapov’s book enables readers to connect the films of an important contemporary director to philosophical ideas that shaped the discipline of film studies during the beginnings of the New Hollywood era.” Alphaville Darren Aronofsky’s Films and the Fragility of Hope offers the first sustained analysis of the current oeuvre of the film director, screenwriter, and producer Darren Aronofsky. Concluding with an interview Aronofsky himself, Jadranka Skorin-Kapov provides a muchneeded study on this American auteur.

A Critical Introduction Murray Leeder, University of Calgary, Canada Adapted by adaptor

Throughout the history of cinema, horror has proven to be a genre of consistent popularity, which has the flexibility to bend to needs of different cultural contexts. Horror Film: A Critical Introduction, the newest in Bloomsbury's Film Genre series, is designed to balance the discussions of horror’s history, theory, and aesthetics as no introductory book ever has. As a straightforward and convenient critical introduction to the history and key academic approaches, this book gives concerted attention to the idea that horror has unusually strong reflexive or metafictional tendencies.

Science Fiction Cinema and 1950s Britain Recontextualising Cultural Anxiety Matthew Jones, De Montfort University, UK Adapted by adaptor

For the last 50 years, discussion of 1950s science fiction cinema has been dominated by the view that the genre reflected US paranoia about Soviet brainwashing and the nuclear bomb. However, classic films, such as Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) and It Came from Outer Space (1953), were regularly exported to countries across the world. Drawing on extensive archival research, Matthew Jones makes an exciting and important intervention in the field by locating 1950s American science fiction films alongside their domestic counterparts in their British contexts of release and reception.

Re-Viewing the Past The Uses of History in the Cinema of Imperial Japan

Movement as Meaning in Experimental Cinema The Musical Poetry of Motion Pictures Revisited Daniel Barnett, San Francisco Art Institute, USA Adapted by adaptor

Movement as Meaning in Experimental Cinema offers sweeping and cogent arguments as to why analytic philosophers should take experimental cinema seriously as a medium for illuminating mechanisms of meaning in language. Informed by the philosophy of Quine, Dennett, Merleau-Ponty as well as the later work of Wittgenstein, among others, Barnett uses the film work of Stan Brakhage, Tony Conrad, A.K. Dewdney, Nathaniel Dorsky, Ken Jacobs, Owen Land, Saul Levine, Gregory Markopoulos Michael Snow, and the poetry of Basho, John Cage, John Cayley and Paul Valery to illustrate the power of his unique perspective on meaning.

Crossover Stardom Popular Male Music Stars in American Cinema Julie Lobalzo Wright, University of London, UK, & King's College London, UK Adapted by adaptor

Crossover Stardom focuses on male music stars who have attempted to achieve film stardom. Julie Lobalzo Wright starts with Bing Crosby, a significant Hollywood star in the studio era; moving to Elvis Presley in the 1950s and 1960s, as the studio system collapsed; to Kris Kristofferson in the New Hollywood period of the 1970s; and ending with Will Smith and Justin Timberlake, in the contemporary era, when corporate conglomerates dominate Hollywood. Thus, the study not only explores music stardom in various eras, it also surveys the history of American cinema from industrial and cultural perspectives, from the 1930s to today.

Sean O’Reilly, Akita International University, Japan Adapted by adaptor

Re-Viewing the Past analyzes the complicated relationship between history films, audiences, reviewers and censors in Japan during the critical 1925-1945 years. First contextualizing the history of the popular “Bakumatsu” period (1853-1868), the moment of Japan’s emergence as a modern nation, Sean O'Reilly paves the way for a reinterpretation of Japanese pre and postwar cinema. Setting a film in the Bakumatsu period offered ‘cultural breathing room’ to both filmmakers and viewers, offering a cinematic space where apolitical entertainment and now-forbidden themes like romance still reigned. Some filmmakers—and viewers—even conceived of these films as being a form of resistance against Japan’s growing militarism.

The Beatles on Screen From Pop Stars to Musicians Stephanie Fremaux, Teesside University, UK Adapted by adaptor

At the forefront of driving the creative change in the 1960s were four mop-topped musicians from Liverpool, The Beatles. While many scholars have examined their role as songwriters, as countercultural and political figures, and as solo artists, few have considered the important role film played in the Beatles’ career. This book focuses on the overlooked films the Beatles performed in from 1964 to 1970 in order to chart their journey from pop stars to musicians. Through these case studies, The Beatles on Screen uncovers how the relationship between film and pop music has changed the ways in which bands communicate with their fans.

Queering The Terminator

Series Editor: Todd McGowan, University of Vermont, USA The Film Theory in Practice Series fills a gaping hole in the world of film theory by marrying the explanation of film theory with an interpretation of a film. Each volume deals with a single theory and a single film, with the aim of providing a discrete example of how film theory can serve as the basis for textual analysis. Each book educates the reader about that specific film theory while also providing an original reading of an important film. The volumes are designed with film theory courses in mind but will be useful also for introductory film classes and for general readers interested in the specific theories and films.

Postmodern Theory and Blade Runner Matthew Flisfeder, University of Winnipeg, Canada Adapted by adaptor

Postmodern Theory and Blade Runner introduces readers to key concepts in postmodern theory and demonstrates how it can be used for a critical interpretation and analysis of Blade Runner, arguably 'the greatest science fiction film'. By contextualizing the film within the culture of late 20th and early 21st-century capitalism, Flisfeder provides a valuable guide for both students and scholars interested in learning more about one of the most significant, influential, and controversial concepts in film and cultural studies of the past 40 years.

Queer Theory and Brokeback Mountain Matthew Tinkcom, Georgetown University, USA Adapted by adaptor

Organized into two parts, the author discusses key canonical texts within queer theory, and provides an historical account of the questions these scholars have posed to our understanding of sexualities— both normative and non-normative—in the historical past and in contemporary life, as well as a discussion of the theories of sexuality and gender offered by these scholars as these phenomena shape the experiences of men and women in the genital, bodily, erotic, discursive, and cultural dimensions. The second part examines Ang Lee’s 2005 feature film, Brokeback Mountain, as that film serves to understand the claims of queer theorists.

Sexuality and Cyborg Cinema David Greven, University of South Carolina, USA Adapted by adaptor

Queering The Terminator considers the sexual politics and queer implications of the Terminator films, from the first 1984 film to the 2015 reboot. The films provide a framework for interpreting shifting gender codes and the emergence of queer sexuality over the period of three decades. As a franchise and on the individual basis of each film, the Terminator series combines both radical and reactionary elements. Each film reflects the struggles over gender and sexuality specific to its release. At the same time, the series foregrounds the intersection of technology and gender that has become a definitive aspect of contemporary experience.

"In her formidable new book ... Elena del Río examines a corpus of violent, shocking, and ultimately extreme films—the very films that moralists might otherwise condemn—in order to mount furious critique of the transcendent values of modern morality ...

The Body in Contemporary Maghrebi Cinemas examines a cluster of recent films that feature Maghrebi(-French) people and position corporeality as a site through which subjectivity and self-other relations are constituted and experienced. This new addition to the Thinking Cinema series interweaves corporeal phenomenology with theological and feminist scholarship on the body from the Maghreb and the Middle East to examine how Maghrebi(-French) people of different genders, ethnicities, sexualities, ages and classes have been represented corporeally in contemporary Maghrebi and French cinemas.

Topics and Issues in National Cinema seeks to explore national cinemas from a novel perspective by focusing on specific topics and issues arising in the various national contexts, instead of surveying the film production of a given country. The individual contributions to the series provide in-depth analysis of a specific cultural, political or social issue in the country or countries, documenting, on the one hand, the role that film has had enabling its articulation and reflection upon the issue, and on the other hand, how the images and narratives that are circulated on film have in turn had an impact upon the issue being represented.

Italian Style Fashion & Film from Early Cinema to the Digital Age Eugenia Paulicelli, Queens College & the CUNY Graduate Center, USA Adapted by adaptor

"Paulicelli’s book is a tour de force of film and fashion scholarship, a beautifully written and authoritative exploration of Italian national identity that will appeal to a wide readership. In mapping out Italy’s rich cultural heritage from early twentieth century modernism, through the economic miracle years to the present day, this book sets out to do nothing less than define Italian style as embodied by the dialogue between fashion and film. That Italian Style achieves this is testament to its brilliance."

Exploring topics such as landscape, gender, modernity and military recruitment, this study details how the respective national cinemas of Japan’s territories struggled under, but also engaged with, the Japanese Imperial structures. Taylor-Jones traces how cinema in the region post-1945 needs to be understood not only in terms of past colonial relationships, but also in relation to how the post-colonial has engaged with shifting political alliances, the opportunities for technological advancement and knowledge, the promise of larger consumer markets, and specific historical conditions of each decade.

Edited by Rayna Denison, University of East Anglia, UK

Animator Norman McLaren is best known for his experimental films using pioneering techniques and his work as founder of the animation department of the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), but little mention is made of his Scottish heritage or his personal life.

J.D. Connor's Hollywood Math and Aftermath proves a stimulating and original take on the relationship between economics and the Hollywood film industry since the 1970s. The industry maintains its preeminence by turning all types of crises into stories— in advance or after the fact. The recession gave the industry new themes to pursue—financial crisis (Arbitrage) and the housing bubble (Magic Mike)—but it also took away its usual funding sources. Every film is greenlit knowing that it will be released into a world that does not yet exist; every movie is a bet that the world in which it appears will be a world that wants it.

Media Control

Witness of Phenomenon articulates a fresh examination of the German Group Zero—Heinz Mack, Otto Piene, and Günter Uecker—and other new tendency artists, who rejected painting and introduced new art media in postwar Europe. They transformed the visual arts from the inanimate objet d’art to a sensory experience by adopting the ascendant philosophy of Phenomenology as their conceptual foundation. Drawing from a decade of research on unpublished archives of the artists and critics of this period, this publication positions Group ZERO as a catalytic art moment in the transition from modern to contemporary art.

News as an Institution of Power and Social Control Robert E. Gutsche, Jr., Florida International University, USA Adapted by adaptor

“In contrast to books on modern media that examine control of media by financial elites and corporations, Gutsche's important study provides a rare look at how media collaborate with power elites in order to maintain social control … He builds his study on theory developed by cultural studies scholars Stuart Hall and James Carey and critical studies media scholar Robert McChesney … His analyses of the local media are helpful as a starting point for understanding the role of newspapers and radio and television stations sprinkled throughout the US.

Controversies in Digital Ethics

Film and Video Intermediality

Edited by Amber Davisson, Keene State College, USA & Paul Booth, DePaul University, USA

The Question of Medium Specificity in Contemporary Moving Images

Adapted by adaptor

Controversies in Digital Ethics offers multiple perspectives on the ways that digital technology and new media have changed contemporary ethical frameworks. Through both theoretical examination as well as specific case studies, the essays provide a vigorous examination of ethics in a highly individualistic and mediated world. The editors bring together multiple writers working from different ethical frameworks to represent the multiplicity of ethical thinking in the 21st century. Accessible for students, but with robust analysis to provide contemporary scholarship in media ethics, this is the first and only collection to unite theory, case studies, and practice within one volume.

Janna Houwen, Leiden University, The Netherlands Adapted by adaptor

In Film and Video Intermediality, Janna Houwen innovatively rewrites the concept of medium specificity in order to answer the questions “what is meant by video?” and “what is meant by film?” How are these two media (to be) understood? How can film and video be defined as distinct, specific media? In this era of mixed moving media, it is vital to ask these questions precisely and especially on the media of video and film. Mapping the specificity of film and video is indispensable in analyzing and understanding the many contemporary intermedial objects in which film and video are mixed or combined.

Phase Media Space, Time and the Politics of Smart Objects James Ash, Newcastle University, UK Adapted by adaptor

In Phase Media, James Ash theorizes how smart objects, understood as Internet-connected and sensor-enabled devices, are altering users’ experiences of their environments. Rather than networks connected by lines of transmission, smart objects generate phases, understood as space-times that modulate the spatio-temporal intelligibility of both humans and non-humans. Examining a range of objects and services and drawing upon the work of Martin Heidegger, Gilbert Simondon, and Bruno Latour, Ash develops a conceptual vocabulary to contend that smart objects do more than just enable a world of increased corporate control and surveillance: they also provide the tools to expose and re-order the very logics and procedures that created them.

Secular Magic and the Moving Image Mediated Forms and Modes of Reception Max Sexton, University of Surrey, UK Adapted by adaptor

Secular magic and the moving image have a history of affinity. Max Sexton attempts to determine the influence and status of secular magic within its various complex modes of delivery in contemporary cinema and on television, and to discover the interstices between them. Sexton provides a grounding in understanding magic's role as entertainment and spectacle, and offers a range of examples from the 2006 films The Illusionist and The Prestige, to Penn and Teller on TV, to the real-time magic of street performers, such as David Blaine and Dynamo.

On the Couch with Lucy, Basil and Kimmie D.T. Klika, Middlesex University, UK

The Comic Event Comedic Performance from the 1950s to the Present Judith Roof, Rice University, USA Adapted by adaptor

The Comic Event approaches comedy as dynamic phenomenon that involves the gathering of elements of performance, signifiers, timings, tones, gestures, previous comic bits, and other self-conscious structures into an “event” that triggers, by virtue of a “cut,” an expected/unexpected resolution. Using examples from mainstream comedy, The Comic Event progresses from the smallest comic moment—jokes, bits—to the more complex—caricatures, sketches, sit-coms, parody films, and stand-up routines. In seeing comedy as a gathering event, Roof creates a theory of comedy that explains the operation of a broad array of distinct comic occasions.

Adapted by adaptor

By putting the sitcom character on the analyst’s couch and closely examining the characters of Basil Fawlty, Lucy Ricardo and Kim from Australia’s Kath & Kim, D.T. Klika reveals the essential elements that must exist in a sitcom before even the first joke is written. Original in its approach Situation Comedy, Character and Psychoanalysis uncovers major findings about the sitcom as well as human behaviour and relationships that we find ‘arresting’ and even “familial”. It shines a light on what is at play in the sitcom that makes us laugh, and why we love the characters we do, only to discover that this form of comedy is more complex than we first thought.

South Korean Film Three-Volume Set Edited by Hyon Joo Yoo, The University of Vermont, USA South Korean Film: Critical and Primary Sources is a reference collection representing three distinct phases in the development of South Korean national cinema. Volume I covers the “Golden Age”, referring to the cinematic era that covers the post-Korean War period from 1955 to 1972. Volume II comprises the phase that produced what critics sum up as New Korean Cinema produced since the 1990s, and which has led to the commercial and critical success of recent South Korean cinema. Volume III, while continuing the thematic and stylistic development distinct in New Korean Cinema, calls for a new epochal conceptualization that emphasizes South Korean film’s global location.
