"Wood's commentary -- blending scholarly insight with a personal tone, knowledgeable about theory but not obscure, always interested in gender and sexuality but not overwhelmed by that interest -- will engage students at all levels of preparation in film studies." -- "Choice"

""Extremely valuable.... Offers the first large-scale interpretation of a period of Hollywood (and independent) filmmaking that presents the serious moral, psychological, and historical issues at stake."" -- "American Film"

"Robin Wood is a serious and important writer, and this is a serious and important book.... [A] wonderful collection of essays." -- "Film International"

"New to this edition are Wood's gutsy defenses of "My Best Friend's Wedding" and "Heaven's Gate," discussions of Hollywood today and teen party pictures like "American Pie," and an essay on "Day of the Dead,.". recommended." -- "Library Journal"

Book Description Columbia University Press, United States, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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. A Revised and Expanded Edition of the Classic Text. Seller Inventory # AAC9780231129671
