FROM THE PUBLISHER - From the earliest days of American cinema, the road movie has been synonymous with American culture. But the road movie is not uniquely American, and other national cinemas have offered their own take, adapting it to reflect their own sensibilities and geographies. Whatever its nationality, the road movie has presented a means by which to challenge and confront convention, remaining an ever-changing, fascinating metaphor for life. Beginning with an expansive essay tracing their historical development, 100 Road Movies is an entertaining but comprehensive guide to one of the most enduring and popular movie sub-genres. Film entries include The Grapes of Wrath, Easy Rider, Two-Lane Blacktop, Stranger Than Paradise, and The Motorcycle Diaries. Bookseller Inventory # 36427

Synopsis: In "100 Road Movies", each entry will offer an insightful critique in terms of aesthetics, plot structure and defining formal and thematic features, whilst also considering the title in the wider context and understanding of by what criteria a film may be considered a road movie. Full credits, including year of production, principal cast and technical crew and country of origin will also be included at the foot of each entry. There will be a selection of illustrative stills, approximately twenty-five in total. The scope is broad, a consideration of the elements that gave rise to the road movie sub-genre, how this sub-genre corresponds to other traditional genres (the thriller, the western etc) and how various international countries have adopted the road movie to reflect their cultural, social, political and geographical identities.
