Cinema of Kathryn Bigelow by Deborah Jermyn
Book DescriptionKathryn Bigelow has undoubtedly been one of Hollywood's most significant female filmmakers, well known in popular terms for films such as "Point Break" and "Blue Steel", yet she remains relatively unexplored in academia. Soundbites about women and guns and speculation about the role of ex-husband James Cameron ("Aliens", "Titanic") in her career have often helped obscure rather than elucidate an understanding of her work and reputation. This collection explores how Bigelow can be seen to provide a point of intersection across a whole range of issues at the forefront of contemporary film studies and the transformation of Hollywood into a post-classical cinema machine, with a particular emphasis on her most ambitious and controversial picture to date, "Strange Days". Her place within New Hollywood is as a filmmaker who blurs genre conventions, reinscribes gender identites and produces a breathless cinema of attractions. This important new study is therefore a timely appraisal of this most significant film director.

Books By Author Deborah Jermyn
Women, Celebrity and Cultures of Ageing, Hardback (August 2015)
This book studies the relationship between women, ageing and celebrity. Focusing on an array of case studies and star/celebrity images, it aims to examine the powerful, contradictory and sometimes celebratory ways in which celebrity culture offers a crucial site for the contemporary and historical construction of discourses on ageing femininities.
Female Celebrity and Ageing, Hardback (September 2013)
'Female Celebrity and Ageing' interrogates the myriad ways in which celebrity culture constructs highly visible ideologies of femininity and ageing, and how ageing female celebrities have negotiated the media in a variety of industrial, historical and national contexts.
'Prime Suspect', Paperback (June 2010)
Deborah Jermyn's study of 'Prime Suspect' places the groundbreaking crime drama in the context of women detectives on screen and the institional sexism that confronted Jane Tennison and her real life counterparts. She provides a close analysis of Helen Mirren's performance and the key role of writer Lynda La Plante.
