New Hollywood Cinema: An Introduction by Geoff King
I B Tauris & Co Ltd | March 29, 2002 | English | ISBN: 1860647499 | 305 pages | PDF | 13 MB

A complex American ‘art’ cinema of innovation and experimentation, or the simplistic world of the comic-book blockbuster? The introverted obsessions of Travis Bickle and Harry Caul, or the action heroics of Luke Skywalker, Indiana Jones or Buzz Lightyear? Street-level independent production, or giant multimedia conglomerates? Radical visions or conservative backlash? Unsettling departures from ‘classical’ Hollywood style, or superficial glitz and over-insistent rhetoric drawn from advertising and MTV? Filmmakers as visionary artists, or as emptily stylish raiders of the cinematic past? ‘Modernism’ or ‘postmodernism’?
