9780822323426: Out Takes: Essays on Queer Theory and Film (Series Q)

This collection brings together the work of both film scholars and queer theorists to advance a more sophisticated notion of queer film criticism. While the “politics of representation” has been the focus of much previous gay and lesbian film criticism, the contributors to Out Takes employ the approaches of queer theory to move beyond conventional readings and to reexamine aspects of the cinematic gaze in relation to queer desire and spectatorship.

The essays examine a wide array of films, including Calamity Jane, Rear Window, The Hunger, Heavenly Creatures, and Bound , and discuss such figures as Doris Day, Elizabeth Taylor, and Alfred Hitchcock. Divided into three sections, the first part reconsiders the construction of masculinity and male homoerotic desire—especially with respect to the role of women—in classic cinema of the 1940s and 1950s. The second section offers a deconstructive consideration of lesbian film spectatorship and lesbian representation. Part three looks at the historical trajectory of independent queer cinema, including works by H.D., Kenneth Anger, and Derek Jarman.

By exploring new approaches to the study of sexuality in film, Out Takes will be useful to scholars in gay and lesbian studies, queer theory, and cinema studies.

Contributors. Bonnie Burns, Steven Cohan, Alexander Doty, Lee Edelman, Michelle Elleray, Jim Ellis, Ellis Hanson, D. A. Miller, Eric Savoy, Matthew Tinkcom, Amy Villarejo, Jean Walton

About the Author:

Ellis Hanson is Assistant Professor of English at Cornell University.

Review:

"Taking a fresh look at significant gay films . . . "Out Takes" challenges readers to consider provocative issues about gay identity and sexuality that are now at the forefront of academic debate."
--Filmbill

"[Hanson] makes important interventions in film studies while working to open up dialogue across a number of discourses. . . . [T]he essays in "OutTakes" . . . [offer] rigorous and nuanced discussions of classic cinema, challenging earlier conceptions of homoeroticism in mainstreaming representations."
--Sue Scheibler," Signs"

"[W]ell designed, readable and illustrated with frame enlargements. The contributions retain the best aspects of queer theory's appealing revision of the past, revealing examination of the present and weather eye on the future. The volume is also welcome in that it is not purely located in the labyrinthine psychoanalytic underworld where much similar work tends to be found, and many of the contributions retain the sense of humour that is happily part of much of queer theory's style."
--Mark Brownrigg, "Scope"

"Ultimately, "Out Takes" is important for two reasons. First, it demonstrates the potential of using queer theory for a radical re-reading of identity and subjectivity. . . . Second, the readings in this anthology have larger political implications. Could we not apply the same type of reading to the homophobic speeches of Newt Gingrich or the homosexual panic that underlies the right wing's concern with political correctness on college campuses? . . ." Out Takes" helps further our understanding that 'queerness' lies not on the margins of our society at all, but instead is inextricably bound with every aspect of it."
--New Art Examiner
