"A valuable book.... highly engaging and thought provoking. Sweeping in its analysis, it brings together a sophisticated discussion of US political history since World War II with a very sharp evaluation of movies during the distinct eras of these years." --Robert Snyder, Southwestern University While analysts may agree that Hollywood movies have always both mirrored and helped to shape the tenor of their times, the question remains: Just how do they do it? And beyond that, how do we identify the political/ideological content of any film? The authors of Movies, Myth, and the National Security State offer answers to these questions, exploring how Hollywood movies have functioned to propagate, or to debate, or sometimes to contest the evolving US national security state since 1945. Drawing on more than a thousand films released since 1948, and focusing in detail on 48 films that address key issues and dilemmas confronting the US and its sense of self and role in the world, they provide insights into US political life as it has developed across some seven decades. Dan O¿Meara and Alex Macleod are professors of international relations at the University of Quebec at Montreal (UQAM). Frédérick Gagnon is assistant professor of political science at UQAM. David Grondin is assistant professor of American studies and international relations at the University of Ottawa.

Offering unique and in-depth discussions of films that have been released since 2000, Classical Myth and Film in the New Millennium uses various modern approaches--ranging from myth criticism to psychology and gender studies--to analyze popular movies that make use of themes and stories from Greek and Roman mythology, including Troy, The Hunger Games, Pan's Labyrinth, and Clash of the Titans. FEATURES * Provides a critical analysis of thirteen movies, exploring the themes, characters, and plots that arise from Greek and Roman mythology and also from other Western and contemporary traditions * Covers films that today's students may already be familiar with and enjoy, resulting in a relevant and interesting text * Addresses themes central to the new millennium: the environment, the perils of materialism and excessive consumerism, gender oppression and equality, broken families, and the constant threat of violence * Organizes films into five thematic parts--Homeric Echoes, The Reluctant Hero, Women in the Margins, Coming of Age in the New Millennium, and New Versions of Pygmalion--that provide an interpretive framework for examining archetypes * A substantial general Introduction provides a foundation for studying myth and film, and each part includes an introduction and discussion questions

In The Epic in Film, Constantine Santas argues that "blockbuster" and "artistic" are not mutually exclusive terms and, perhaps more importantly, that epic film is an inherently profound genre in its ability to tap into the dreams and fears of a nation, and sometimes those of the human race. Why do we see dozens and dozens of films based on the King Arthur legend? Why would a presidential hopeful borrow the phrase "Read my lips" from Clint Eastwood's Dirty Harry? Why do war epics proliferate in times of war or national crisis? Why are epics as a whole the most popular movie genre? Whether you love Gone with the Wind and hate Troy, find Akira Kurosawa's films brilliant or marvel over the depth of the Matrix trilogy, if you're a film buff, you will want to read this first book-length treatment of the epic-a wildly popular, infinitely fascinating, and critically underappreciated genre.
