Sex and Sexuality in Modern Screen Remakes

Accessed October 21, 2018 from http://www.newnownext.com/the-office-finale-oscar-gay/05/2013/ Bleiler, David. 2013. TLA Film and Video Guide 20002001: The Discerning Film Lover's Guide. New York: St Martin's Press. Bletchly, Rachael.

Sex and Sexuality in Modern Screen Remakes

Sex and Sexuality in Modern Screen Remakes examines how sexiness, sexuality and revisited sexual politics are used to modernize film and TV remakes. This exploration provides insight into the ever-evolving—and ever-contested—role of sex in society, and scrutinizes the politics and economics underpinning modern media reproduction. More nudity, kinky sex, and queer content are increasingly deployed in remakes to attract, and to titillate, a new generation of viewers. While sex in this book refers to increased erotic content, this discussion also incorporates an investigation of other uses of sex and gender to help a remake appear woke and abreast of the zeitgeist including feminist reimaginings and ‘girl power’ make-overs, updated gender roles, female cast-swaps, queer retellings, and repositioned gazes. Though increased sex is often considered a sign of modernity, gratuitous displays of female nudity can sometimes be interpreted as sexist and anachronistic, in turn highlighting that progressiveness around sexuality in contemporary media is not a linear story. Also examined therefore, are remakes that reduce the sexual content to appear cutting-edge and cognizant of the demands of today’s audiences.

Cinema and Life Development

Peake uses prevailing and emerging models of life-span development along with examples from Cinema to animate psychological understanding and application. The use of film offers powerful opportunities for anecdotes, clinical applications, and examples of life stories drawn from popular and lesser-known cinema. The addition of movies as metaphors make the material accessible to lay, student, and professional readers. Drawn from numerous workshops and symposia using this material, Peake finds this emphasis breathes life into teaching, negotiating, and growing from new perspectives.

Neo noir

Film scholar Ronald Schwartz examines the most significant representatives of the "Neo-Noir" style, beginning with Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho and concluding with Michael Mann's Collateral (2004). Schwartz provides in-depth analyses of over 30 of the best "Neo-Noir" films and explains the qualities and characteristics of the "new noir" style. He also explains how it differs from "Film Noir" of the forties and fifties. In this chronological guide, Schwartz examines such landmark films as The Manchurian Candidate (1962), The French Connection (1971), Taxi Driver (1976), Reservoir Dogs (1992), L.A. Confidential (1997), and Memento (2000). The book also includes an alphabetical filmography listing over 650 films that in plot, style, or subject matter reflect the diversity of the genre. This reference work will be a valuable resource for film scholars and fans who wish to explore the ever-evolving aspects of "Neo-Noir" cinema.

New Tunisian Cinema

Tunisian cinema is often described as the most daring of all Arab cinemas. For many, Tunisia appeared to be a model of equipoise between "East" and "West," and yet, during Zine El Abidine Ben Ali's presidency, from 1987 to 2011, the country became the most repressive state in the Maghreb. Against considerable odds, a generation of filmmakers emerged in the mid-1980s to make films that are allegories of resistance to the increasingly illiberal trends that were marking their society. In New Tunisian Cinema, Robert Lang focuses on eight films by some of the nation's best-known directors, including Man of Ashes (1986), Bezness (1992) and Making Of (2006) by Nouri Bouzid, Halfaouine (1990) by Férid Boughedir, The Silences of the Palace (1994) by Moufida Tlatli, Essaïda (1997) by Mohamed Zran, Bedwin Hacker (2002) by Nadia El Fani, and The TV Is Coming (2006) by Moncef Dhouib. He explores the political economy and social, historical, and psychoanalytic dimensions of these works and the strategies filmmakers deployed to preserve cinema's ability to shape debates about national identity. These debates, Lang argues, not only helped initiate the 2011 uprising that ousted Ben Ali's regime but also did much to inform and articulate the aspirations of the Tunisian people in the new millennium.
