Phallic Panic

by Barbara Creed, Phallic Panic Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Phallic Panic books, 'Phallic Panic is not only an impressive and elegant work of scholarship; it breathes new life into debates around the horror film, illuminating the genre's eerie and unsettling power. Like her groundbreaking The Monstrous-Feminine, Creed's new book is destined to become a standard text in the field.' Pam Cook, Professor of European Film and Media, University of Southampton 'Barbara Creed asks the question "what does man want?" and takes us on an exhilarating trip through the Freudian uncanny and horror cinema to provide the answers. This is a lucid and compelling account of male monstrosity which exhumes the uncanny and makes it come to life all over again as something "primal", perverse and chillingly subversive.' Ken Gelder, author of Reading The Vampire and The Horror Reader Vampires, werewolves, cannibals and slashers-why do audiences find monsters in movies so terrifying? In Phallic Panic, Barbara Creed ranges widely across film, literature and myth, throwing new light on this haunted territory. Looking at classic horror films such as Frankenstein, The Shining and Jack the Ripper, Creed provocatively questions the anxieties, fears and the subversive thrills behind some of the most celebrated monsters. This follow-up to her influential book The Monstrous-Feminine is an important and enjoyable read for scholars and students of film, cultural studies, psychoanalysis and the visual arts.

The Dread Of Difference

by Barry Keith Grant, The Dread Of Difference Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Dread Of Difference books, An undying procession of sons of Dracula and daughters of darkness has animated the horror film genre from the beginning. Indeed, in this pioneering exploration of the cinema of fear, Barry Keith Grant and twenty other film critics posit that horror is always rooted in gender, particularly in anxieties about sexual difference and gender politics.The book opens with the influential theoretical works of Linda Williams, Carol J. Clover, and Barbara Creed. Subsequent essays explore the history of the genre, from classic horror such as King Kong and Bride of Frankenstein to the more recent Fatal Attraction and Bram Stoker's Dracula. Other topics covered include the work of horror auteurs David Cronenberg, Dario Argento, and George Romero; the Aliens trilogy; and the importance of gender in relation to horror marketing and reception.Other contributors include Vera Dika, Thomas Doherty, Lucy Fischer, Christopher Sharrett, Vivian Sobchack, Tony Williams, and Robin Wood. Writing across a full range of critical methods from classic psychoanalysis to feminism and postmodernism, they balance theoretical generalizations with close readings of films and discussions of figures associated with the genre.The Dread of Difference demonstrates that horror is hardly a uniformly masculine discourse. As these essays persuasively show, not only are horror movies about patriarchy and its fear of the feminine, but they also offer feminist critique and pleasure.

Scorsese S Men

by Mark Desmond Nicholls, Scorsese S Men Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Scorsese S Men books, "Fascinating and provocative, this book adds a completely new dimension to our understanding of the films of Martin Scorsese." —Barbara Creed, University of Melbourne Martin Scorsese is the most influential director of his generation and, with his work regularly included among the top 20 films of all time, his place in cinema history is assured. Scorsese's films have defined the cinematic essence of each decade since the 1960s and have set the standard of New Hollywood cinema. Mark Nicholls traces Martin Scorsese's central theme of melancholia, nostalgia, and loss through five of the director's finest films: The Age of Innocence, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, and Cape Fear. Scorsese's Men reflects on the heroes of these films and their "tribal groups": 19th-century New York Society, the Italian American Mob, and the Yuppified New South. Nicholls asserts that for all of this melancholic man's perversions, he ultimately becomes a universally adored and culturally empowered Superman of loss.

Queering Bu Uel

by Julian Daniel Gutierrez-Albill, Queering Bu Uel Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Queering Bu Uel books, As the father of cinematic Surrealism, extensive critical attention has been devoted to Luis Buñuel's cinema. Much has been written about his first Surrealist films of the 1920s and 1930s and the French art movies of the 1960s and 1970s. However, here for the first time is a queer re-reading of Buñuel's Spanish-language films allowing us to view Buñuel's cinema through a lens of queer spectatorship. Focusing on the films Buñuel produced in Mexico and Spain during the 1950s and 1960s, Julián Daniel Gutiérrez-Albilla argues not that Buñuel's films have a homosexual subplot, but that there are multiple forms of identity, subjectivity and sexuality present in these films. Queering Buñuel brings together the fields of film studies, feminist and queer theory, Hispanic studies, psychoanalysis and art theory. Gutiérrez-Albilla succeeds in reconceptualizing Buñuel's Mexican and Spanish films beyond geographical, historical and disciplinary boundaries, questioning not just how we see Buñuel, but also how we see cinema.
