About this product
- DescriptionThe Terministic Screen: Rhetorical Perspectives on Film examines the importance of rhetoric in the study of film and film theory. Rhetorical approaches to film studies have been widely practiced, but rarely discussed until w. Taking on such issues as Hollywood blacklisting, fascistic aesthetics, and postmodern dialogics, editor David Blakesley presents fifteen critical essays that examine rhetoric's role in such popular films as The Fifth Element , The Last Temptation of Christ , The Usual Suspects , Deliverance , The English Patient , Pulp Fiction , The Music Man , Copycat , Hoop Dreams , and A Time to Kill . Aided by sixteen illustrations, these insightful essays consider films rhetorically, as ways of seeing and t seeing, as acts that dramatize how people use language and images to tell stories and foster identification. Contributors include David Blakesley, Alan Nadel, Ann Chisholm, Martin J. Medhurst, Byron Hawk, Ekaterina V. Haskins, James Roberts, Thomas W. Benson, Philip L. Simpson, Davis W. Houck, Caroline J. S. Picart, Friedemann Weidauer, Bruce Krajewski, Harriet Maliwitz, Granetta L. Richardson, and Kelly Ritter.
