Hollywood Utopia: Ecology in Contemporary American Cinema

Pat Brereton | 2004 | ISBN: 1841501174 | English | 160 pages | PDF | 5 MB

Utopianism, alongside its more prevalent dystopian opposite, together with ecological study has become a magnet for interdisciplinary research and is used extensively to examine the most influential global medium of all time.

This book applies a range of interdisciplinary strategies to trace the evolution of ecological representations in Hollywood film from the 1950s to the present. Such a study has not been done on this scale before. Many popular science fiction, Westerns, nature and road movies are extensively analysed, while privileging particular ecological moments of sublime expression often dramatized in the closing moments of these films.
