Directory of World Cinema: American Hollywood 2 by Lincoln Geraghty

Hollywood continues to reign supreme; from award-winning dramas to multi-million-dollar, special-effects-laden blockbusters, Tinseltown produces the films that audiences around the world go to the cinema to see. While the film industry has dramatically changed over the years - stars have come and gone, studios have risen and fallen, new technologies have emerged to challenge directors and entice audiences - Hollywood remains the centre of global media entertainment. The second volume of Directory of World Cinema: American Hollywood builds on its predecessor by exploring how the industry has evolved and expanded throughout its history. With new essays that discuss the importance of genre, adaptation, locations and technology in the production of film, this collection explores how Hollywood has looked to create, innovate, borrow and adapt new methods of film-making to capture the audience's imagination. Touching on classic films such as North by Northwest and Dirty Harry, alongside CGI blockbusters like The Lord of the Rings and The Dark Knight, as well as comedies such as When Harry Met Sally and Jerry Maguire, this landmark book charts the changing tastes of cinemagoers and the diverse range of offerings from Hollywood.

User-friendly and concise, yet dense and wide-ranging, Directory of World Cinema: American Hollywood 2 demonstrates that Hollywood, despite its challenges from independent film-makers and foreign directors, remains the undisputed king of film-making in the twenty-first century.
