This class attempts to make sense of the present state of American film by tracing the history of American movies from the mid-1960s to the new millennium. We will examine the institutional factors that fostered the increasing dominance of Hollywood over independent cinemas as well as the technological innovations (i.e. digital production and post-production technologies) that radically altered film form and style. Throughout the course, we will also pay close attention to current thinking on film genre in order to reveal the ideological breaks and continuities between classical and post-classical narrative cinema.
