Abstract

American Cinema in the Shadow of 9/11 is a ground-breaking collection of essays by some of the foremost scholars writing in the field of contemporary American film. Through a dynamic critical analysis of the defining films of the turbulent post-9/11 decade, the volume explores and interrogates the impact of 9/11 and the 'War on Terror' on American cinema and culture. This book considers the power of popular film to function as a potent cultural artifact, able to both reflect the defining fears and anxieties of the tumultuous era, but also shape them in compelling and resonant ways. This chapter looks at Masculinity in this context.
