Summary
"The Politics of Hollywood Cinema radically transforms our understanding of cinema's potential to be politically engaging and challenging. Examining several films from Hollywood's classical era, including Marked Woman, Mr Smith Goes to Washington, Born Yesterday, On the Waterfront and It Should Happen to You, alongside contemporary theories of democracy advanced by Ernesto Laclau, Chantal Mouffe, Claude Lefort, Etienne Balibar and Jacques Rancire, Richard Rushton argues that popular films can offer complex subtle, relevant and controversial approaches to democracy and politics"--
