Disaster Movies by Stephen Keane
Book DescriptionIn this second edition of "Disaster Movies: The Cinema of Catastrophe", Stephen Keane provides an up-to-date account of the history and development of the disaster genre. Through detailed analysis of films such as "The Towering Inferno", "Independence Day", "Titanic" and "The Day After Tomorrow", the book looks at the ways in which disaster movies can be read in relation to both contextual considerations and the increasing commercial demands of contemporary Hollywood. Featuring new material on cinematic representations of disaster in the wake of 9/11 and how we might regard disaster movies in light of recent natural disasters, Keane explores the continual reworking of this previously undervalued genre.
