Hollywood from Vietnam to Reaganand Beyond by Robin Wood

English | July 15, 2003 | ISBN: 023112967X, 0231129661 | 412 Pages | PDF | 4.2 MB

This classic of film criticism, long considered invaluable for its eloquent study of a problematic period in film history, is now substantially updated and revised by the author to include chapters beyond the Reagan era and into the twenty-first century. For the new edition, Robin Wood has written a substantial new preface that explores the interesting double context within which the book can be read-that in which it was written and that in which we find ourselves today. Among the other additions to this new edition are a celebration of modern "screwball" comedies like My Best Friend`s Wedding, and an analysis of `90s American and Canadian teen movies in the vein of American Pie, Can`t Hardly Wait, and Rollercoaster. Also included are a chapter on Hollywood today that looks at David Fincher and Jim Jarmusch (among others) and an illuminating essay on Day of the Dead.
