In this new study, Edward Gallafent does not look at Tarantino’s story but at the films themselves. He asks to what extent Tarantino can be seen as a specifically American filmmaker, with the kinds of preoccupations and interests that have formed part of Hollywood’s traditions, and also how he explores the expressive possibilities of current cinema. The book concentrates on the main feature films of Tarantino’s career so far: Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, and the two volumes of Kill Bill.

Clint Eastwood: Filmmaker and Star, Continuum (New York, NY), 1994. British educator and author Edward Gallafent has focused his career primarily on Hollywood cinema but also has expertise in Western and nineteenth-and twentieth-century American literature. Gallafent's first book about Hollywood cinema delves into the career of American actor, director, and producer Clint Eastwood.

Clint Eastwood (b. 1930) is the only popular American dramatic star to have shaped his own career almost entirely . 1930) is the only popular American dramatic star to have shaped his own career almost entirely through films of his own producing.

For nearly thirty years, Clint Eastwood has had an unchallenged position as one of Hollywood's biggest and most enduring stars. Always able, it seems, to work within the Hollywood system on his own terms, Eastwood has created a gallery of heroes, many clearly descended from his laconic Man With No Name for Sergio Leone, as well as more vulnerable characters such as the DJ in Play Misty For Me, or even the redneck of Every Which Way But Loose.However, in serious critical discussions of 'seventies and 'eighties cinema, Eastwood's work has mostly been relegated to the sidelines as being "simple" and/or politically reactionary popular entertainment. All this has changed since the rapturous critical reception of Unforgiven (1991), which won Eastwood a well-deserved Academy Award.This book presents Eastwood's work as a body of filmmaking with a crucial place in the mainstream American cinema of the past two decades. It deals with the films in which he starred for other directors, notably Dirty Harry and his other movies with Don Siegel, and films such as Bird of which he was director but not star, as well as his frequent work in both capacities.Rather than giving a chronological account of Eastwood's career (the approach of most other books about him), Edward Gallafent groups his movies for consideration within the genre or cycle to which they belong, setting them among other, comparable filmmaking of the time. Instead of attempting either to demonize or to elevate Eastwood, the book stresses his position within an American cultural and historical framework, relating it to current issues in American cinema.
