9780231132473: Shocking Representation: Historical Trauma, National Cinema, and the Modern Horror Film (Film and Culture Series)

In this imaginative new work, Adam Lowenstein explores the ways in which a group of groundbreaking horror films engaged the haunting social conflicts left in the wake of World War II, Hiroshima, and the Vietnam War. Lowenstein centers Shocking Representation around readings of films by Georges Franju, Michael Powell, Shindo Kaneto, Wes Craven, and David Cronenberg. He shows that through allegorical representations these directors' films confronted and challenged comforting historical narratives and notions of national identity intended to soothe public anxieties in the aftermath of national traumas.

Borrowing elements from art cinema and the horror genre, these directors disrupted the boundaries between high and low cinema. Lowenstein contrasts their works, often dismissed by contemporary critics, with the films of acclaimed "New Wave" directors in France, England, Japan, and the United States. He argues that these "New Wave" films, which were embraced as both art and national cinema, often upheld conventional ideas of nation, history, gender, and class questioned by the horror films. By fusing film studies with the emerging field of trauma studies, and drawing on the work of Walter Benjamin, Adam Lowenstein offers a bold reassessment of the modern horror film and the idea of national cinema.

About the Author:

Adam Lowenstein is associate professor of English and film studies at the University of Pittsburgh. His essays have appeared in Cinema Journal, Critical Quarterly, and Post Script as well as the anthologies Hitchcock: Past and Future Trauma and Cinema: Cross-Cultural Explorations, and British Cinema, Past and Present.

Review:

" Shocking Representation is an original and convincing study of how
history shapes the modes of cinematic horror and fantasy. Through sensitive
critical analysis, Lowenstein shows how specific historical traumas are
expressed both consciously and unconsciously in a variety of films; in the process
he enables us to see these films in a new way, and he repeatedly deepens our
appreciation of their artistry." -- James Naremore, Indiana University, author of More Than Night: Film Noir in Its Contexts
