American-Jewish Filmmakers - 2nd edition

American-Jewish Filmmakers (ISBN10: 0252071530; ISBN13: 9780252071539)
ISBN13: 978-0252071539
ISBN10: 0252071530

Summary: Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, Sidney Lumet, and Paul Mazursky, all sons of East European Jews, remain among the most prominent contemporary American film directors. In this updated second edition, David Desser and Lester D. Friedman demonstrate how the Jewish experience gives rise to an intimately linked series of issues in the films of these and other significant Jewish directors.

The effects of the Holocaust linger, both in dramatic form (Mazursky's Enemies,
A Love Story) and in black comedy (Brooks's The Producers). In Serpico, Prince of the City, and Q&A, Lumet focuses on the failure of society's institutions to deliver social justice. Woody Allen portrays urban life and family relationships (Manhattan and Hannah and Her Sisters), sometimes with a nostalgic twist (Radio Days).

This edition concludes with a new discussion of the careers of other prominent Jewish film-makers such as Steven Spielberg, Barry Levinson, Brian Singer, and Darren Aronofsky.
