In When the Movies Mattered Jonathan Kirshner and Jon Lewis gather a remarkable collection of authors to revisit the unique era in American cinema that was New Hollywood. Ten eminent contributors, some of whom wrote about the New Hollywood movement as it unfolded across the 1960s and 1970s, assess the convergence of film-industry developments and momentous social and political changes that created a new type of commercial film that reflected those revolutionary influences in American life. Even as New Hollywood first took shape, film industry insiders and commentators alike realized its significance. At the time, Pauline Kael compared the New Hollywood to the "tangled, bitter flowering of American letters in the 1850s" and David Thomson dubbed the era "the decade when movies mattered." Thomson's words provide the impetus for this volume in which a cohort of seasoned film critics and scholars who came of age watching the movies of this era reflect upon and reconsider this golden age in American filmmaking. Contributors: Molly Haskell, Heather Hendershot, J. Hoberman, George Kouvaros, Phillip Lopate, Robert Pippin, David Sterritt, David Thomson

Recensioner i media

"A superb anthology, a volume whose nostalgia for the New Hollywood is refreshingly clear-eyed rather than rose-tinted, and no less infectious for it." * The Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory * "And that's what makes "Mattered" such a fascinating read. This set of random pieces actually reveal how - for one shining moment - the losers ran Hollywood." * The Houston Chronicle * "Movie connoisseurs and film students, especially those who relish the pictures of the New Hollywood era, should add this admirable volume to their library" * Midwest Book Review *
