Product Description

Review

"With the contemporary 'woman’s film' routinely written off as the ultimate disreputable genre, this useful collection reminds us of what is to be gained by thoughtful feminist engagement with the form." —Diane Negra, Professor of Film Studies and Screen Culture, University College Dublin

"Exploring pretty boys and lad flicks, girly films and femme fare, chicks with dicks—and concrete saws!—and much more, Feminism at the Movies samples a wide range of post-2000 films. The incisive analyses provided here expand the ways feminist optics are applied to contemporary media debates…a must-read!" —Christine Holmlund, Arts and Sciences Excellence Professor of Cinema Studies and French, University of Tennessee

"Radner and Stringer's wonderful anthology offers a startling range of accomplished essays, spanning both broadly popular Hollywood fare (Miss Congeniality, The War of the Worlds) and independent art cinema (Juno, High Tension). The original essays in this vibrant new work both refer back to the foundations of film studies in 1980s feminism, and chart a path toward a new century of critical analysis." —Walter Metz, Professor of Cinema and Photography, Southern Illinois University

An amazing collection. 28 Sept. 2013
By linzeigh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has a myriad of different articles, some I agreed with and some I didn't, but they were all very in-depth and interesting. Well, most of them were interesting. The 13 Going on 30 essay was a little more existential than I could grasp, but for the most part they're all relatively readable if you already know a little something about feminist theory. I got this book for my birthday, and I can say it is one of the best gifts I've gotten. Seriously love it.

Relevant research. 9 Feb. 2012
By Conway Hawk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book provides accessible and intelligent perspectives of the way women are portrayed in music, how this relates to feminist concerns, and how these examples depict current cultural themes. I highly recommend.
