About this book

Violent women in cinema pose an exciting challenge to spectators, overturning ideas of 'typical' feminine subjectivity. This book explores the representation of homicidal women in contemporary art and independent cinema. Examining narrative, style and spectatorship, Loreck investigates the power of art cinema to depict transgressive femininity.

Reviews

“Violent men in film are usually received without comment, whereas violent women are suspect and thus the victims of a double standard. … they are some of the most important works currently being created, and they deserve a wider audience. This thoughtful, well-written book gives them the deft and detailed consideration due them. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty.” (G. A. Foster, Choice, Vol. 54 (2), October, 2016)
