Genre and Contemporary Hollywood
This wide-ranging text is one of the first to look in detail at some of the principal genres, cycles, and trends in Hollywood's output during the last two decades. Adopting an array of approaches and frequently debating existing accounts of genre in new and old Hollywood alike--the collection of freshly commissioned contributions focuses on animated feature films, teenpics, biopics, comedies, Shakespeare adaptations, and female-oriented dramas, as well as on blockbusters, westerns, gangster films, horror films, war films, and neo-noirs. It includes analysis of The Quick and the Dead, Menace II Society, Sense and Sensibility, Set It Off, Grifters, The Mask, When Harry Met Sally, Basic Instinct, Coppola's Dracula, and other films.
Designed to open up a topic that has all too often been ignored or misrepresented, Genre and Contemporary Hollywood will appeal to anyone interested not just in genre, but in the new Hollywood, its history, and its films.
