Interdisciplinary and engaging, Masculinities in Contemporary Argentine Popular Cinema is the first scholarly work to link visual representations of heterosexual masculinities to the neo-liberal transformations in Argentina. Rocha critically examines contemporary cinematic representations of Argentine masculinities produced after the crucial changes of the 1990s affected both the social construction of gender and the financing of domestic film productions. Theoretically innovative, this study provides detailed analysis of six Argentine blockbusters.
