The New Extremism in Cinema
From France to Europe
Edited By: Tanya C Horeck and Tina Kendall
Publication Date:	Jul 2011
	

Explosive images of sex and violence in films by directors such as Catherine
Breillat, Gaspar Noé, Michael Haneke and Lars von Trier have attracted media
attention for the ways in which they seek to shock and provoke the spectator
into powerful affective and visceral responses.

This first collection of essays devoted to the new extremism in contemporary
European cinema critically interrogates this highly contentious body of work
and demonstrates that these films and the controversies they engender are
indispensable to the critical task of rethinking the terms of spectatorship.
Through critical discussions of key films and directors, this book sheds new
light on cutting-edge debates in Film Studies regarding sexuality, violence
and spectatorship, affect and ethics, and the political dimensions of extreme
cinema.

Including important new work from internationally renowned scholars Martin
Barker and Martine Beugnet, as well as combining a range of approaches to
extreme cinema across audience research and theories of spectator ship, this
exploration of the darkest side of cinema will be an invaluable resource for
film scholars and students.
