British Queer Cinema by Robin Griffiths
Book DescriptionBritish Queer Cinema draws together a diverse range of innovative new essays that explore, for the first time, the provocative history of lesbian, gay and queer representation in British cinema. From the early years of 'Pre-Gay' film, through to the social upheaval of post-war 'permissiveness', Gay Liberation and the 'post-AIDS' queer generation, contributors examine the shifting and complex nature of queer identity, desire and spectatorship across a number of classical and contemporary British popular film genres and traditions. Through case studies of key works such as The Killing of Sister George, Prick Up Your Ears and Beautiful Thing, a reappraisal of the films of Anthony Asquith, Terence Davies and Derek Jarman, to the 'queerness' of the heritage film, the homoerotic 'New Wave', or the star performances of Dirk Bogarde, Beryl Reid and Stephen Fry, this timely collection maps the relationship between contemporary queer sexuality and its socio-historical, national and critical contexts.
