Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In this series of provocative, interrelated essays, Robin Wood analyzes 1970s films affected by the ideological crises in America precipitated by Watergate and the Vietnam war, and assembles his much-discussed but hiterto scattered and inaccessible work on the modern horror film. The book also analyzes the complex and problematic films of Brian De Palma, attacks the 1980s fantasy cinema of Lucas and Spielberg, examines the work of women directors, and celebrates the films of Scorcese and Michael Cimino.
