Camera Obscura (2007) - Mulvey's Manifesto




Merck discusses Laura Mulvey's essay "Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema" a rhetorical perspective of political criticism's advocates and opponents. This essay figures as a major reference point, an object of imitation, denigration, and that peculiar combination of both that is parody. Yvonne Rainer has argued that the publication of this essay released a cri de coeur that echoed in protest on both sides of the Atlantic against cultural practices that diminished and marginalized women, the means by which it achieved that effect, intellectually and emotionally. Moreover, David Bordwell and Bill Nichols' rhetorical perspectives of political criticism's advocates and opponents are being remarked.
