9780292756762: Psycho-Sexual: Male Desire in Hitchcock, De Palma, Scorsese, and Friedkin

Bridging landmark territory in film studies, Psycho-Sexual is the first book to apply Alfred Hitchcock’s legacy to three key directors of 1970s Hollywood—Brian De Palma, Martin Scorsese, and William Friedkin—whose work suggests the pornographic male gaze that emerged in Hitchcock’s depiction of the voyeuristic, homoerotically inclined American man. Combining queer theory with a psychoanalytic perspective, David Greven begins with a reconsideration of Psycho and the 1956 remake of The Man Who Knew Too Much to introduce the filmmaker’s evolutionary development of American masculinity.

Psycho-Sexual probes De Palma’s early Vietnam War draft-dodger comedies as well as his film Dressed to Kill, along with Scorsese’s Taxi Driver and Friedkin’s Cruising as reactions to and inventive elaborations upon Hitchcock’s gendered themes and aesthetic approaches. Greven demonstrates how the significant political achievement of these films arises from a deeply disturbing, violent, even sorrowful psychological and social context. Engaging with contemporary theories of pornography while establishing pornography’s emergence during the classical Hollywood era, Greven argues that New Hollywood filmmakers seized upon Hitchcock’s radical decentering of heterosexual male dominance. The resulting images of heterosexual male ambivalence allowed for an investment in same-sex desire; an aura of homophobia became informed by a fascination with the homoerotic. Psycho-Sexual also explores the broader gender crisis and disorganization that permeated the Cold War and New Hollywood eras, reimagining the defining premises of Hitchcock criticism.

Review:

One of the "Must-Read Books of 2014" chosen by The Editors at RogerEbert.com for their HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE 2014: MUST-READ BOOKS!

"Effectively breaking new ground on a subject that has already been so extensively studied, this book convincingly challenges oversimplified readings of Hitchcock’s films as being inherently homophobic and/or misogynistic as it simultaneously demonstrates the enduring influence of the director’s representational approaches on three noteworthy New Hollywood directors....From start to finish, Psycho-Sexual is a well-written, meticulously researched monograph that makes meaningful contributions to the disciplines of cinema studies, gender studies, and LGBT/queer studies.
—Kylo-Patrick R. Hart, Texas Christian University, The Journal of American Culture - See more at: http://utpress.utexas.edu/index.php/books/grepsy#sthash.Vvui1YFG.dpuf

"One of Slant Magazine's Top 10 Film Studies Books of 2013."

By placing text before theory, Greven's labored, good-faith book stands higher than merely auteur appreciation: It demands serious consideration across many disciplinary planes, both historic and theoretical, as an exemplary, immanently readable call for serious, revisionist film-studies texts, while serving as one itself. (Clayton Dillard Slant magazine 2013-01-13)

Greven takes a sustained look at the psychosexual dynamics of masculine desire found in two generations of American filmmakers...The author's nuanced readings suggest how profoundly Hitchcock influenced his successors...Summing Up: Recommended. (M. J. Emery, Cottey College Choice 2013-08-01)
