Respected film critic Gonzalo Aguilar offers a lucid and sophisticated analysis of Argentine films of the last decade. This is the most complete and up-to-date work in English to examine the 'new Argentine cinema' phenomenon. Aguilar looks at highly relevant films, including those by Lucrecia Martel and Sergio Rejtman.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In this insightful, well-researched, theoretically grounded, and original critical-analytical study, Aguilar seeks to characterize and interpret this movement by examining films through the lenses of such social and aesthetic concepts/topics as nomadism (the absence of a home and of ties of belonging), the frequent omniscience of commodities and merchandise, the "thematization" of soundtracks, the deconstruction of social stereotypes, and the striking modifications of film genre expectations. With its thorough scholarly apparatus, this book will be invaluable, including to those familiar with Tamara Falicov's outstanding The Cinematic Tango: Contemporary Argentine Film (CH, Jan'08, 45-2504). Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty." - CHOICE
