Editorial Reviews

Review

[Firestorm] will be a popular resource for film students.

(James Clarke Times Higher Education Supplement)

Prince's impressively thorough and intelligently written book will serve as a guide for some years to this visually indelible episode in American history... Essential.

(Choice 1900-01-00)

offers a detailed and insightful critical analysis while avoiding jargon...Firestorm isa remarkable achievement as a first look at the impact of 11 September on filmmaking, and lays the groundwork for any number of new approaches.

(Jeffrey Mazo Survival)

[A] thoughtful and thorough investigation of the celluloid response to that chilling September day.

(Luke Davies The Australian)

A rich record and accounting of the first decade of responses by both mainstream and marginal American filmmakers.

(Corey K. Creekmur Cineaste 1900-01-00)

Review

Stephen Prince's penetrating analysis of the cinematic blowback from 9/11 and the 'War on Terror' is a pioneering volume blazing a trail for what will surely be a swathe of like-minded studies. This book is informative, well argued, awash in sparkling insights, and, not incidentally, quite moving.

(Thomas Doherty, Brandeis University, and author of Hollywood's Censor: Joseph I. Breen and the Production Code Administration)|

An accessibly written, wide-ranging introduction to a topic that no book in film studies has yet covered so comprehensively.

(Adam Lowenstein, University of Pittsburgh)

By Patricia on November 14, 2010
Format: Paperback
Our immersion in the products of the television and film industries can lead us to simply follow the stories that we watch without considering their cultural context. This accessible yet scholarly book brings the reader's attention to the medium in which we are immersed. Prince's attention to detail and clarity of style help the reader examine the impact of 9/11 on our culture and on our storytelling. The book requires that the reader consider the way that films shape our cultural mythology. I highly recommend this book! It will open your eyes and mind.

Have choice this book for my tesis about 9/11 and hollywood. The book is a really perfect analysis, or not a simple list of the movie (like other books of cinema).
Stephen analyze with criticism all component and influse of 9/11, before read this book I have my personal idea to the influence of hollywood movies and 9/11, after read, my idea is the same of the author, this is the proof for my tesis about the influence constantly of 9/11 before and after with the movie and tv on USA and the rest of the world.
