9781782793786: U.ESS.AY: Politics and Humanity in American Film

U.ESS.AY: Politics and Humanity in American Film collects together the published essays of Stephen Lee Naish, into a narrative that explores the political and humanistic elements of modern cinema. With the rise of digital technology and the excessive use of CGI currently overwhelming cinema, realism and humanity have been dispensed with in favor of spectacle and illusion. It is the goal of U.ESS.AY to find within modern cinema contents that address the cultural and political landscape

About the Author:

Stephen Lee Naish grew up in Leicester, UK but now lives in Ontario, Canada were he writes about film, politics and popular culture and the places were they converge. His writing has appeared in numerous journals and periodicals.

Review:

In this book, Stephen Lee Naish gives a discerning look at American film and popular culture over the course of the last half-century. Moving from Dennis Hopper to David Cronenberg, from the robot sexuality of Star Trek to the aesthetic aspirations of North Korean dictators, and from low-budget "mumblecore" production to Hollywood's disaster-movie blockbusters, Naish shows postmodern cinema as a funhouse mirror reflecting all sorts of quintessentially American (and anti-American) compulsions.
--Steven Shaviro, Author of Post Cinimatic Affect, Zero Books -
