Overview

Contemporary Hollywood Cinema by STEVE NEALE

Contemporary Hollywood Cinema examines recent changes in American filmmaking, from ballooning budgets to the evolving aethetics of the modern audience. Throughout, the contributors assess new and defining features of contemporary Hollywood such as the growth in

star marketing, rather than movies or directors and the rise of the "major independent" production/distribution companies. Completely up-to-date, this collection tells us where Hollywood is today, and where we can expect it to be in the future. Contributors: Michael Allen, Tino Balio,

Warren Buckland, Steven Cohan, Pam Cook, Elizabeth Cowie, Kevin Donnelly, Thomas Elsaesser, Douglas Gomery, Barry Keith Grant, Peter Kramer, Tommy Lott, Richard Maltby, Hilary Radner, James Schamus, Gianluca Sergi, Justin Wyatt.
