SOC 903 Action Cinema and Modernity

This course will focus on blockbuster action cinema in terms of global marketing, complex production strategies, and internationally accessible screen imagery which establishes an ideological, and fictionally ‘urbanized,’ terrain for high consumption. Such filmmakers as Woo, Tarantino, McTiernan, Cameron, the Wachowski Bros., and others will be studied in the context of critical theories of modernity. Screen identity, and group identity construction will have focus. Lect: 3 hrs. Prerequisite: SOC 103 or SOC 104 or SOC 105 or SOC 107 Course Weight: 1.00 Billing Units: 1
