Product description

Subversive pleasures offers the first extended application of Mikhail Bakhtin's critical methods to film, mass-media, and cultural studies.

He discuses literary works by Rabelais, Shakespeare, and Jarry and treats films by Vigo, Bunuel, Wertnuller, Imamura, Mel Brooks, Monty Python, Marlene Gooris and others.
