Críticas:

"The problem of the so-called 'new waves' is one that concerns cultural history and periodization generally, and not merely recent film history; nor is it exactly the same as that of 'avant-gardes', even though the two are related. James Tweedie's analysis of the French original is stimulating, but it is his study of the Chinese (and Taiwanese) versions that is truly revealing and I may even say indispensable."--Fredric Jameson"In The Age of New Waves, James Tweedie takes discrete new wave cinemas from France to Taiwan out of the local contexts that produced them and into which they are too frequently confined, and makes a case for understanding the new wave as a global phenomenon. The result is a brilliant analysis that contributes to national as well as international cinema studies, while rethinking key aspects of both. Tweedie's book itself represents a new wave of scholarship on national cinemas in the world."--Akira Mizuta Lippit, author of Ex-Cinema: From a Theory of Experimental Film and Video

Reseña del editor:

The Age of New Waves examines the origins of the concept of the "new wave" in 1950s France and the proliferation of new waves in world cinema over the past three decades. The book suggests that youth, cities, and the construction of a global market have been the catalysts for the cinematic new waves of the past half century. It begins by describing the enthusiastic engagement between French nouvelle vague filmmakers and a globalizing American cinema and culture during the modernization of France after World War II. It then charts the growing and ultimately explosive disenchantment with the aftermath of that massive social, economic, and spatial transformation in the late 1960s. Subsequent chapters focus on films and visual culture from Taiwan and contemporary mainland China during the 1980s and 1990s, and they link the recent propagation of new waves on the international film festival circuit to the "economic miracles" and consumer revolutions accompanying the process of globalization. While it travels from France to East Asia, the book follows the transnational movement of a particular model of cinema organized around mise en scène-or the interaction of bodies, objects, and spaces within the frame-rather than montage or narrative. The "master shot" style of directors like Hou Hsiao-Hsien, Tsai Ming-Liang, and Jia Zhangke has reinvented a crucial but overlooked tendency in new wave film, and this cinema of mise en scène has become a key aesthetic strategy for representing the changing relationships between people and the material world during the rise of a global market. The final chapter considers the interaction between two of the most global phenomena in recent film history-the transnational art cinema and Hollywood-and it searches for traces of an American New Wave.
