Item description for Disaster Movies: The Cinema of Catastrophe (Short Cuts) by Stephen Keane...

Stephen Keane's history of the disaster genre offers a detailed analysis of films such as The Towering Inferno, Independence Day, Titanic, and The Day After Tomorrow. He looks at the ways in which disaster movies can be read in relation to both contextual considerations and the increasing commercial demands of contemporary Hollywood. In this second edition, he adds new material regarding cinematic representations of disaster in the wake of 9/11 and an analysis of disaster movies in light of recent natural disasters. Keane continually reworks this previously unexplored genre.

Reviews - What do customers think about Disaster Movies: The Cinema of Catastrophe (Short Cuts)?

Dr Zhivago a disaster-movie ?!?  Dec 12, 2001
well, well there are not to many filmbooks about disastermovies. They certainly had there best time in the seventies with films like "Airport", "Earthquake" oder "Towering Inferno" but also the following decades brought us films like "Volcano" or "Twister". The books describes the genre starting in the 1910's, with detailed analyses of the 70's films. I miss a filmographie with detailed informations - instead you'll find a list of disastermovies including "Batman", "Ben Hur" or even "Dr. Zhivago"... not very helpfull....
