COMM 355 - NEW HOLLYWOOD CINEMA: 1968-1980 AND THE STUDIO SYSTEM
This course will examine the cultural, historical, socioeconomic, political, and cinematic influences and ramifications of the New Hollywood Cinema, a period of unusually risky major studio filmmaking that began with Warner Brothers’ 1968 release of Bonnie and Clyde and ended in 1980 when Heaven’s Gate brought down United Artists. This course will follow the story of the American studio system, from the demise of the old guard through the birth of the blockbuster era and into the boardrooms of multinational corporations. During this 12-year period, American film studios, energized by stunning innovations in foreign cinema – particularly films of the French New Wave, the Italian New Wave, and post-war Japanese cinema – produced a string of surprisingly daring pictures, from M*A*S*H, The Last Picture Show, and Rosemary’s Baby, through The Godfather, The Exorcist, Jaws, and Apocalypse Now.
