Pub. Date:
Adopting much of the theoretical perspective of Fredric Jameson's Postmodernism; or, The Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism (1991), Booker (English, U. of Arkansas) seeks to introduce a general audience to an understanding of postmodernism through the window of popular films. He examines the prevalence of narrative, formal, and thematic fragmentation in such films as Run Lola Run and Memento; nostalgia as a mode of postmodern film; nostalgia towards earlier motion pictures; and television and other media as a source of style and content in American postmodern film.
