Layer and Risk (Contemporary Approaches to Film and Media Series)

by Wayne State University Press
Price: $34.99 Buy Now

Product description

The phenomenon of risk has been seriously neglected in connection with the study of film, yet many of those who write about film seem to have intuitions about how various forms of risk-taking shape aspects of the filmmaking or film-viewing process. Film and Risk fills this gap as editor Mette Hjort and interdisciplinary contributors discuss film's relation to all types of risk. Bringing together scholars from philosophy, anthropology, film studies, economics, and cultural studies, as well as experts from the fields of law, filmmaking, and photojournalism, this volume discusses risk from multiple intriguing angles.

In thirteen chapters, contributors consider concrete risks (e.g., stunts or financial decisions); theoretical aesthetic and artistic risks (e.g., filmmakers who incorporate excessive hazards into their films); and the real-world jeopardy spectators might put themselves in when viewing films. The first three chapters tackle the conceptual terrain that is relevant to understanding risk in film. The next three chapters focus on risk as it pertains to the practice of filmmaking. Subsequent chapters deal with economic risk and the role that risk has in the development of film's institutional landscape. The scholarship in this collection is impressive, boasting some of the top writers in their respective fields.

Through the contributors' clear and thorough discussions, this cohesive but diverse collection shows that risk arises in many different areas that tend to be thought of as central to film studies. Scholars of film studies will appreciate this daring and inventive collection, and readers with a general interest in film studies will enjoy its accessible style.

Best of 2016: The 22 Best Films of the Year (Part 2) - ComicsVerse

The second film in the CLOVERFIELD franchise, 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE ditches the found-footage formula in favor of a tense, claustrophobic character study. After a horrific car accident renders her unconscious, Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) awakes in an underground bomb shelter constructed by an unstable doomsday-prepper named Howard (John Goodman). Howard holds Michelle against her will, declaring that the world has experienced some unknown catastrophe, rendering life outside his concrete sanctuary impossible. 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE is a rare specimen: a film that manages to improve upon its predecessor in every way. Winstead lights up the screen with her powerhouse performance. This strong, self-reliant protagonist is easy to root for and an absolute joy to watch on screen. But it’s John Goodman who steals the show with his portrayal of Howard, imbuing this character with a sense of sympathy without sacrificing on terror. Dan Trachtenberg does an incredible job of visualizing Michelle’s struggle. He takes full advantage of Goodman’s imposing build. The tight framing allows the actor’s massive size to dominate the screen. Goodman towers over Winstead in every scene, giving the film a claustrophobic feel which greatly enhances the experience. 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE is a tense, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride filled with shocking twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the final frame. Your life sucks. Deal with it. Those are the wise sentiments of Kelly Fremon Craig’s pitch-perfect directorial debut, THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN starring Hailee Steinfeld, Hayden Szeto, Woody Harrelson, and Kyra Sedgwick. This coming-of-age dramedy follows Nadine, an awkward and unpopular seventeen year old, whose life suddenly implodes once her best friend Krista begins dating her attractive and popular brother Darian. Convinced her life is worse than everyone else’s, Nadine must navigate her way through her self-imposed isolation and misery before she self-destructs for good. The world is sleeping on THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN, and that is a straight up shame considering that this is one of the best films of the year, bar none. Craig’s script is so acute and authentic in its treatment of teenage angst – which is one part melodrama and one part genuine growing pains – that it cannot help but resonate with anyone who has suffered past their awkward pubescent years. Hailee Steinfeld is absolutely brilliant as the irritatingly self-absorbed yet painfully relatable and sympathetic Nadine, and Hayden Szeto, who plays Nadine’s affable yet clumsy classmate Erwin Kim, is the breakout star with his spot-on... Craig keeps the theatrics and dramatics just below critical mass by gently pulling back at just the right moments, tugging at your heartstrings and turning on the waterworks just when you least expect it. THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN takes all the best... There is a lot going on in this movie and if you are not a fan of STAR TREK you won’t get anything I am saying right now. This film is action packed, and the cinematography is fantastic. If you are a fan of Star Trek, you will like this movie and if you aren’t, you won’t like this movie. It’s the same for Star Wars lovers and haters, either you love it or you don’t. I, personally, think the actors and actresses play wonderful parts in this film and I don’t have much to say about it. Like I said, if you like Star Trek this one is for you, but if not then you won’t even care what I am talking about. (Shareca Cole) TEN YEARS is equal part film and political statement. The film imagines 5 unique stories each connected with the idea of presenting the city of Hong Kong ten years into the future. One of the segments presents the unyielding march of development in be city through abstract, nightmarish metaphor, while others portray Hong Kong’s transformation through farcical, but emotional, satire. While the film grounds itself in a very specific place, its messages of individual freedom and free expression through art are universal and feel more timely than ever in light of international turmoil. It can be difficult when the world feels so chaotic to feel like the things you love matter. It can feel like movies, comics, art as a whole is frivolous. The filmmakers behind TEN YEARS serve as a reminder of the binding power of art. While it may seem abstract in the now, it’s power can bring about change.
