American Film and Society Since 1945 free pdf In this most recent update to American Film and Society since 1945, the authors expand upon earlier editions by adding films previously neglected, and broaden their analysis of a number of films by discussing how these works capture the mood and values of American society in a particular decade. Interpretation of films can involve direct connections with social and political issues, but often deal with the important subtext of dreams, desires, and displacements that the American public feels. Recent films that present gay relationships and politics, such as "Brokeback Mountain" and "Milk", and that address race relations and urban life like "Crash" and "Precious" are examined. This fourth edition will also address changes in the modern film industry such as convergence and the digital revolution.
