Product Overview

This book traces the circulation in Britain of three Hollywood films--"Basic Instinct," "Bram Stoker's Dracula" and "Natural Born Killers" --from marketing and critical reception to consumption in cinemas and on video. It draws on economic discursive contexts and original audience research to trace how meanings, pleasures, and uses are derived from popular film. A significant intervention into methodological debates in film studies and a timely investigation of film culture, it focuses on key questions about genre, taste, sexual pleasure and screen violence.
