  • Affective Moments in the Films of Martel, Carri, and Puenzo

    By Inela Selimovic

    Our Price: $99.99
    • ISBN-13: 9781137496416
    • Publisher: Palgrave MacMillan
    This book studies the intimate tensions between affect and emotions as terrains of sociopolitical significance in the cinema of Lucrecia Martel, Albertina Carri, and Lucía Puenzo. Such tensions, Selimovic argues, result in "affective moments" that relate to the films' core arguments. They also signal these filmmakers' novel insights on complex manifestations of memory, desire, and violence. The chapters explore how the presence of pronounced--but reticent--affect complicates emotional bonding in the everydayness depicted in these films. By bringing out moments of affect in these filmmakers' diegetic worlds, this book traces the ways in which subtle foci on gender, class, race, and sexuality correlate in these Argentine women's films.

    • Published: November 1993
    In Akira Kurosawa and Intertextual Cinema, James Goodwin draws on contemporary theoretical and critical approaches to explore the Japanese director's use of a variety of texts to create films that are uniquely intertextual and intercultural. Surveying all of Kurosawa's films and examining six films in depth— The Idiot, The Lower Depths, Rashomon, Ikiru, Throne of Blood, and Ran—Goodwin finds in Kurosawa's themes and techniques the capacity to restructure perceptions of Western and Japanese cultures and to establish new meanings in each.
