Abstract

Aux Etats-Unis plus manifestement encore qu’en Europe, « aller au cinéma » a recouvert des réalités extraordinairement diverses. « Aller au cinéma », en 1902, dans un Hale’s Tours and Scenes of the World n’a rien à voir avec « aller au cinéma » dans un nickelodeon de 1908 ou dans un picture palace de 1925. « Aller au cinéma » dans les années de la Dépression, quand se généralisent les doubles programmes, les primes de fidélité et les loteries, et quand les chômeurs viennent dormir, sinon rêve...

Abstract

L’écrivain-personnage est un pôle d’attraction tant pour le cinéaste que pour le spectateur : Hollywood a produit plus de 250 films traitant d’écrivains. Mais pourquoi reviennent-ils donc si souvent dans le cinéma américain ? Trudy Bolter, Américaine, maître de conférences en culture nord-américaine à l’Institut d’études politiques de Bordeaux (université Montesquieu Bordeaux 4), analyse une vingtaine de « writer-films » pour expliquer le pouvoir de la figure de l’écrivain sur la scène cultur...

Abstract

'Memory and popular film' uses memory as a specific framework for the cultural study of film. Taking Hollywood as its focus, this timely book provides a sustained, interdisciplinary perspective on memory and film from early cinema to the present. Considering the relationship between official and popular memory, the politics of memory, and the technological and representational shifts that have come to effect memory's contemporary mediation, the book contributes to the growing debate on the status and function of the past in cultural life and discourse. By gathering key critics from film studies, American studies and cultural studies, 'Memory and popular film' establishes a framework for discussing issues of memory IN film and of film AS memory. Together with essays on the remembered past in early film marketing, within popular reminiscence, and at film festivals, the book considers memory films such as Forrest Gump, Lone Star, Pleasantville, Rosewood and Jackie Brown. 'Memory and popular film' provides a wide-ranging analysis that will benefit both students and critics of popular culture, film studies and the past.

Abstract

L’acteur fut longtemps un mal-aimé des discours savants sur le cinéma : sa présence semblait un matériau précaire, fuyant, offrant peu de prise à l’analyse et à la théorie. Cependant les temps changent et, grâce aux efforts de nombreux critiques et universitaires, l’acteur s’est imposé au cours des dernières décennies comme objet légitime d’étude et de recherche. C’est de cette évolution qu’a voulu témoigner le colloque « L’acteur de cinéma, approches pluridisciplinaires », organisé à l’autom...

Abstract

This book charts and analyses the work of Oliver Stone – arguably one of the foremost political filmmakers in Hollywood during the last thirty years. Drawing on previously unseen production files from Oliver Stone’s personal archives and hours of interviews both with Stone and a range of present and former associates within the industry, the book employs a thematic structure to explore Stone’s life and work in terms of war, politics, money, love and corporations. This allows the authors both to provide a synthesis of earlier and later film work as well as locate that work within Stone’s developing critique of government. The book explores the development of aesthetic changes in Stone’s filmmaking and locates those changes within ongoing academic debates about the relationship between film and history as well as wider debates about Hollywood and the film industry. All of this is explored with detailed reference to the films themselves and related to a set of wider concerns that Stone has sought to grapple with -the American Century, exceptionalism and the American Dream, global empire, government surveillance and corporate accountability. The book concludes with a perspective on Stone’s ‘brand’ as not just an auteur and commercially viable independent filmmaker but as an activist arguing for a very distinct kind of American exceptionalism that seeks a positive role for the US globally whilst eschewing military adventurism.

Abstract

Early in the twenty-first century, Louisiana, one of the poorest states in the United States, redirected millions in tax dollars from the public coffers in an effort to become the top location site globally for the production of Hollywood films and television series. Why would lawmakers support such a policy? Why would citizens accept the policy’s uncomfortable effects on their economy and culture? Almost Hollywood, Nearly New Orleans addresses these questions through a study of the local and everyday experiences of the film economy in New Orleans, Louisiana—a city that has twice taken the mantle of becoming a movie production capital. From the silent era to today’s Hollywood South, Vicki Mayer explains that the aura of a film economy is inseparable from a prevailing sense of home, even as it changes that place irrevocably.

Abstract

The Imaginary Geography of Hollywood Cinema 1960-2000 combines digital cartography with close readings of representative films to write a history of twentieth century Hollywood narrative cinema at the intersection of the geographies of narrative location, production, consumption and taste in the post-classical era, before the rise of digital cinema. This text reorients and redraws the boundaries of film history both literally and figuratively by cataloguing films’ narrative locations on digital maps to examine where Hollywood locates its narratives over time.

Abstract

Motion pictures are made, not mass produced, requiring a remarkable collection of skills, self-discipline, and sociality—all of which are sources of enormous pride among Hollywood’s craft and creative workers. The interviews collected here showcase the pleasures that attract people to careers in film and television. They also reflect critically on changes in the workplace brought about by corporate conglomeration and globalization. Rather than offer publicity-friendly anecdotes by marquee celebrities, Voices of Labor presents off-screen observations about the everyday realities of Global Hollywood. Ranging across job categories—from showrunner to make-up artist to location manager—this collection features voices of labor from Los Angeles, Atlanta, Prague, and Vancouver. Together they show how abstract concepts like conglomeration, financialization, and globalization are crucial tools for understanding contemporary Hollywood and for reflecting more generally on changes and challenges in the screen media workplace and our culture at large.
