While there are numerous books on art and exploitation cinema, very few attempt to examine both. Covering the first 100 years of cinematic transgressions, From the Arthouse to the Grindhouse is a collection of numerous essays representing key contributions to overlooked, forgotten, or under-analyzed parts of film history. From cult favorites like Arch Hall Jr. to revered but under-documented marquee names like Lon Chaney, filmmakers both major and minor are covered here. Starting with a section that pairs exploitation pioneers like Dwain Esper alongside cutting edge auteurs like Erich Von Stroheim, the volume documents the bleeding edge of the high/low cultural divide. Other essays examine the sexual melodramas of Weimer German cinema, explore the concept of Borat as a model for the new standardized cult film, and discuss the films of directors Tod Browning, Pier Pasolini, and Peter Watkins. This volume also contains a section devoted to the idea of "reality" inside and outside the documentary sphere, emphasizing audiences' desire to believe that "this is really happening," whether they're horrified or titillated. Addressing many aspects of "transgression" in cinema, these essays suggest that the distance between the venues and the audiences may not be quite as wide as viewers might imagine.

Michael Crichton, durchaus ein Experte in diesen Dingen, prägte Mitte der Neunziger über Steven Spielberg das schön widersprüchliche Wort vom einflussreichsten und zugleich am wenigsten verstandenen populären Künstler der Welt. Denn Popularität ist zweischneidig: Der mit Abstand fleißigste und an der Kinokasse erfolgreichste Filmregisseur der Welt, der eigentliche Erfinder des Blockbusters, der Meister des Spektakelkinos, der Schöpfer massenhaft moderner Mythen, wurde von der Kritik eher geringgeschätzt und bislang nur mit drei Oscars ausgezeichnet. Aber Hitchcocks legitimer Erbe verdient endlich eine Würdigung als Filmkünstler, die dieses Buch nun leistet.Es versteht ihn als selbstbestimmten Autor seines Werks, der seine Lebenserfahrungen, ja Obsessionen bearbeitet, sich mit großem Mut auf die brennendsten Fragen und Sujets der Geschichte und Gegenwart einlässt und durch seine Kunst zu humanistischem Engagement findet.

From the unbridled sensuality of the orgy scenes in silent Italian cinema, through a topless Sophia Loren in a 1950s historical epic and the image of Silvana Mangano, her skirt provocatively tucked into her underwear, in the neo-realist classic Bitter Rice, to the erotic obsessions of Fellini and the more cerebral but still passion-centred movies of Antonioni, eroticism is ever-present in Italian cinema. And then there are the popular movies: the acres of tanned flesh (both male and female) on offer in the many sword and sandal epics of the peplum era through to the inextricable mix of sexuality and violence in the gialli of such directors as Mario Bava and Dario Argento, in which death and sex meet in a blood-drenched, orgasmic coda. Of course, there's far more to Italian cinema: it is one of the most glorious and energetic celebrations of the medium that any nation has ever offered. For many years, this astonishing legacy was largely unseen, but the DVD revolution is making virtually everything available, from Steve Reeves' muscle epics to long-unseen Italian art house movies. The one characteristic that most of the great (and not so great) Italian movies have in common is the sheer individualism of the directors. And this applies to the populist moviemakers as much as to the giants of serious cinema. While Fellini, Visconti and Antonioni have rightly assumed their places in the pantheon, so have such talented popular auteurs as Sergio Leone, who was doing something with the Western that no American director would dare do, so radical was the rethink. All the glory of Italian cinema is celebrated here in comprehensive essays, along with every key film in an easy-to-use reference format.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Klassiker und Theorierichtungen, Note: 1,3, Technische Universität Dresden (für Soziologie), Veranstaltung: Eine „störende und verstörende Wissenschaft“ – Pierre Bourdieus Verständnis der Soziologie, 18 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Spätestens seit den 1970er Jahren, in denen eine Reihe so genannter Schwedenfilme die Kinokassen Europas zum klingeln brachten, ist die filmische Darstellung von Sex nicht nur leinwandfähig geworden, sondern aus dem Film gar nicht mehr wegzudenken. Längst gehören Skandale um Nacktheit und Lust der Vergangenheit an. Ein Film ist nicht gleich ein Porno, nur weil die Protagonisten des Öfteren mehr oder weniger verhüllt Geschlechtsverkehr haben, wie zum Beispiel in „Basic Instinct“ (R: Paul Verhoeven, USA 1991) oder „9 1⁄2 Weeks“ (R: Adrian Lyne, USA 1986). Und doch: der Bann, mit dem Sex als Darstellungstabu belegt wurde, ist noch nicht gebrochen. Nicht ganz. Welche Kriterien führen dazu, dass ein Film einen Skandal auslöst, Hass schürt oder Ekel erregt? Auf Grund welcher Kriterien wird ein Film von Kritikern in den höchsten Tönen gelobt und welche Filme erhalten eine gute Resonanz vom Publikum? Alles eine Frage des Geschmacks? Um diesen und verwandten Fragen auf den Grund zu gehen, werde ich mich auf Texte von Pierre Bourdieu stützen; dabei insbesondere auf „die feinen Unterschiede“. Ziel ist es zu zeigen, warum Detailaufnahmen von sexuellen Handlungen in einem Arthouse-Film für wenig Glückliche manchmal gar keine Pornographie sind und warum solche Darstellungen für viele Unzufriedene es eben doch sind.
