A Source Book for the Teacher of Film Art

A Source Book for the Teacher of Film Art

Date: August 1969
Creator: Pratt, Lorraine N.
Description: How does one teach the language and literature of the film? Where does one begin? What should be included in such a study? The answers to these questions do not exist and will not until much earnest effort and time have been spent toward their discovery. Certainly this thesis does not contain the final answers. It does contain some tentative answers, however, answers that can be put into practice in the classroom, examined, modified, rejected, or accepted. The ideas and suggestions are only invitations to explore; from such exploration will come the real advancements in this important field.

Dangerous, Desperate, and Homosexual: Cinematic Representations of the Male Prostitute as Fallen Angels

Dangerous, Desperate, and Homosexual: Cinematic Representations of the Male Prostitute as Fallen Angels

Date: May 2008
Creator: Lay, John Phillip
Description: The purpose of this study is to frame the cinematic male prostitute as a "fallen angel" to demonstrate that the evolution of the cinematic hustler has paralleled historicized ideological definitions of male homosexuality. Because cultural understandings of male homosexuality frequently reflect Judeo-Christian ideological significations of sin and corruption, the term "fallen angel" is utilized to describe the hustler as a figure who has also succumbed to sin due to his sexual involvement with other men. This study constructs an epochal analysis of eight films that explores the confluence of the social understanding of homosexuality with the cinematic image of the hustler from the mid 1960s through the present. In doing so, this study shows that the image of the cinematic hustler is intricately tied to the image of the male homosexual in material cultures and eras that produce them. A filmography is included.

Lowest of the Low: Scenes of Shame and Self-Deprecation in Contemporary Scottish Cinema

Lowest of the Low: Scenes of Shame and Self-Deprecation in Contemporary Scottish Cinema

Date: May 2008
Creator: McCracken, Michael
Description: This thesis explores the factors leading to the images of self-deprecation and shame in contemporary Scottish film. It would seem that the causes of these reoccurring motifs may be because the Scottish people are unable to escape from their past and are uneasy about the future of the nation. There is an internal struggle for both Scottish men and women, who try to adhere to their predetermined roles in Scottish culture, but this role leads to violence, alcoholism, and shame. In addition, there is also a fear for the future of the nation that represented in films that feature a connection between children and the creation of life with the death of Scotland's past. This thesis will focus on films created under a recent boom in film production in Scotland beginning in 1994 till the present day.
