New Wave, New Hollywood in the Los Angeles Review of Books

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Rather fantastically Nancy M. West, writing for the Los Angeles Review of Books, has discussed New Wave, New Hollywood: Reassessment, Recovery and Legacy (edited by Nathan Abrams and Gregory Frame), including a whole discussion of my chapter ‘Formal Radicalism vs. Radical Representation: Reassessing The French Connection (William Friedkin, 1971) and Dirty Harry (Don Siegel, 1971)’. This, and more, was said, ‘Maya Montañez Smukler, Nathan Abrams, Gregory Frame, Cary Edwards: this new wave of scholars takes aim at auteurism, that consecrated mainstay of New Hollywood, writing which treats the director as the true artist and unifying voice of a film — the king of the castle, master of his domain.’ Find the full article here: Lost Men, Found Women: Revisiting the New Hollywood.
