"Tengiz Abuladze's allegorical work Repentance, made in Soviet Georgia, is the best know film of the perestroika and glasnost years. Due to its provocative depiction of the Stalin era and Stalin's place in the Soviet psyche, Repentance was originally shelved but ultimately released in 1986 to widespread popular and critical acclaim." "This Kinofile investigates the production, context and critical reception of the film and provides an analysis of the film itself and its place in world cinema."--BOOK JACKET

Cinematic Cold War : the American and Soviet struggle for hearts and minds by Tony Shaw( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cold War was as much a battle of ideas as a series of military and diplomatic confrontations, and movies were a prime battleground for this cultural combat. Tony Shaw and Denise Youngblood show Hollywood sought to export American ideals in movies like Rambo, and the Soviet film industry fought back by showcasing Communist ideals in a positive light, primarily for their own citizens. The two camps traded cinematic blows over four decades. The first book-length comparative survey of cinema's vital role in disseminating Cold War ideologies, Shaw and Youngblood's study focuses on ten films, five American and five Soviet, that in both obvious and subtle ways provided a crucial outlet for the global "debate" between democratic and communist ideologies. For each nation, the authors outline industry leaders, structure, audiences, politics, and international reach and explore varied relationships linking each film industry to its respective government. They then present five comparative case studies, each pairing an American with a Soviet film: Man on a Tightrope with The Meeting on the Elbe; Roman Holiday with Spring on Zarechnaya Street; Fail-Safe with Nine Days in One Year; Bananas with Officers; Rambo: First Blood Part II with Incident at Map Grid 36-80. Collectively, their commentaries track the Cold War in its entirety, from its formative phase through periods of thaw and self-doubt to the resurgence of mutual animosity during the Reagan years and enable readers to identify competing core propaganda themes such as decadence versus morality, technology versus humanity, and freedom versus authority. They show such themes blurred notions regarding "propaganda" and "entertainment," terms that were often interchangeable and mutually reinforcing during the Cold War. Cinematic Cold War offers a shrewd analysis of how the silver screen functioned on both sides of the Iron Curtain
Russian war films : on the cinema front, 1914-2005 by Denise J Youngblood( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"War movies have long been the most influential genre in Russian cinema, so much so that in the Soviet Union's militaristic society, "cinema front" was used to describe the film industry itself. Denise J. Youngblood, an internationally recognized authority on Russian and Soviet cinema, provides the first comprehensive guide to this long-neglected genre." "In this study, Youngblood explores more than 160 fiction films on Russian conflicts from World War I to Chechnya. These movies represent a wide range of cinematic styles and critical receptions, with particular emphasis on films little known in the West but popular in the USSR."--Jacket
Movies for the masses : popular cinema and Soviet society in the 1920s by Denise J Youngblood( Book )

19 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents a pathbreaking study of Soviet popular cinema in the 1920s. Professor Youngblood focuses on commercial directors, acting genres, box office hits and audience responses to these films and their stars. She also examines the role of foreign films and the governmental and industrial circumstances underlying filmmaking practices of the era. The author demonstrates that during the first decade after the revolution, Soviet cinema was dominated by "bourgeois" directors and middle class tastes and was greatly influenced by Western and pre-revolutionary film cultures"--Publisher description

Bondarchuk's War and peace : literary classic to Soviet cinematic epic by Denise J Youngblood( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sergei Bondarchuk's War and Peace, one of the world's greatest film epics, originated as a consequence of the Cold War. Conceived as a response to King Vidor's War and Peace, Bondarchuk's surpassed that film in every way, giving the USSR one small victory in the cultural Cold War for hearts and minds. This book, taking up Bondarchuk's masterpiece as a Cold War film, an epic, a literary adaptation, a historical drama, and a rival to Vidor's Hollywood version, recovers-and expands-a lost chapter in the cultural and political history of the twentieth century.Like many great works of literature
