Sinister, swaggering, yet often sympathetic, the figure of the gangster has stolen and murdered its way into the hearts of American cinema audiences. Despite the enduring popularity of the gangster film, however, traditional criticism has focused almost entirely on a few canonical movies such as "Little Caesar," "Public Enemy," and "The Godfather "trilogy, resulting in a limited and distorted understanding of this diverse and changing genre."""Mob Culture" offers a long-awaited, fresh look at the American gangster film, exposing its hidden histories from the Black Hand gangs of the early twentieth century to "The Sopranos." Departing from traditional approaches that have typically focused on the "nature" of the gangster, the editors have collected essays that engage the larger question of how the meaning of criminality has changed over time. Grouped into three thematic sections, the essays examine gangster films through the lens of social, gender, and racial/ethnic issues.Destined to become a classroom favorite, "Mob Culture" is an indispensable reference for future work in the genre.


'This book does a fine job at what it sets out to do - to redefine the American gangster genre.'William Luhr, Saint Peter's College'Mob Cultures uncovers new aspects of the gangster genre, from its dress codes to its relation to government investigation, from gangsters on nickelodeon screens to HBO series, from Tong wars in Chinatown to the African American gangster in race films. Think you know the gangster genre? Read this book and discover dimensions you never dreamed of.'Tom Gunning, University of Chicago --このテキストは、ハードカバー版に関連付けられています。

Beyond The Godfather 2006/7/8

形式: ペーパーバック
Here is an interesting collection of essays on American crime films going well beyond the usual treatment (i.e., Cagney, Robinson, Bogart, etc., up through Bonnie and Clyde, The Godfather, and Pulp Fiction). This time its the hidden underbelly of the Hollywood underworld and the emphasis is on issues of race, gender, and political and social influences on gangster films from various periods. Rather than beginning with Little Caesar and Scarface, it goes way back to the early silents, exploring early popular conceptions and misconceptions of urban ghetto life, the Black Hand, and Chinese tongs, covers early "race" films and the "blaxploitation" cycle of the Seventies, the Kefauver Committee and its influence upon the "Syndicate" films of the Fifties and brings it right up to date with the HBO treatment of The Sopranos. The articles on gender and sexuality explore the roles or nonroles of women in the gangster film as well as implied homosexuality in the traditionally exclusive male celluloid gangster world and one chapter is devoted to the FBI's mythologizing of Ma Barker and to the various wildly inaccurate Hollywood treatments of her legend. The intellectualizing may be a bit heavy here at times--after all, we're talking gangster movies, which are hardly aimed at the highbrow crowd--but there are some great perspectives here anyway and coverage of many obscure crime films. It's worth picking up.
