Product Overview

Much analysis of gangster movies has been based upon a study of the gangster as a malign figuration of the American Dream, originally set in the era of the Depression. This text extends previous analysis of the genre by examining the evolution of gangster movies from the 1930s to the contemporary period and by placing them in the context of cultural and cinematic issues such as masculinity, consumerism, and technology. With a close examination of many films from" Scarface "an" Public Enemy "to "Reservoir Dogs "and "Pulp Fiction," this book provides a fascinating insight into a topical and popular subject.
