  • Complicated Womenby Mick LaSalle

    St. Martin's Press 2014; US$ 20.99

    Between 1929 and 1934, women in American cinema were modern! For five short years women in American cinema were modern! They took lovers, had babies out of wedlock, got rid of cheating husbands, enjoyed their sexuality, led unapologetic careers and, in general, acted the way many think women only acted after 1968. Before then, women on screen had... more...

  • Studying The Lord of the Ringsby Anna Dawson

    Columbia University Press 2014;

    Unquestionably the first cinematic phenomenon of the twenty-first century, Peter Jackson's trilogy was a project of enormous artistic vision and financial risk.

  • The Thingby Jez Conolly

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 14.99

    Consigned to the deep freeze of critical and commercial reception upon its release in 1982, The Thing has bounced back spectacularly to become one of the most highly regarded productions from the 1980s 'Body Horror' cycle of films, experiencing a wholesale and detailed reappraisal that has secured its place in the pantheon of modern cinematic horror.... more...

  • Studying Fight Clubby Mark Ramey

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 14.99

    Fight Club is, on one level, pop-culture phenomena and on another, a deeply philosophical and satirical exploration of modern life.

On initial release the film was met... more...

  • Halloweenby Murray Leeder

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 14.99

    The 1970s represented an unusually productive and innovative period for the horror film, and John Carpenter?s Halloween (1978) is the film that capped that golden age and some say ruined it, by ushering in the era of the slasher film. Considered a paradigm of low-budget ingenuity, its story of a seemingly unremarkable middle-American town becoming... more...
