Description - Movies as Politics by Jonathan Rosenbaum

This collection of reviews and essays focuses on the political and social dynamics of the contemporary movie scene. It explores the many links between film and our ideological identities as individuals and as society. It includes examinations of, for example, racial stereotyping in the debates surrounding "Do the Right Thing", key films from Africa, China, Japan and Taiwan, Hollywood musicals and Frech serials, and the cultural amnesia accompanying cinematic treatments of the Russian Revolution, the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War. From "Schindler's List", "Star Wars", "Pulp Fiction", "Forrest Gump", "The Piano", and "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" to the maverick careers of Orson Welles, Jacques Tati, Nicholas Ray, Chantal Akerman, Todd Haynes and Andrei Tarkovsky.
