After reading the article in the attachment, please answer the following questions in 500 words. I’ll provide some lecture notes later.
With these insights from Willis and Tasker in mind, address how contemporary action movies might be read as similarly ambivalent fantasies about race, gender, globalization, science, technology, or other forces that may pose a “crisis” to masculine agency—the ability of white men to uphold law and order through violent, physical action. In what ways do such action films also exhibit what we might call the “frenzy of the visible,” through rapid montage and/or mobile camera shots (actual or virtual), and what might such spectacles say about other media (i.e. GoPro cameras, video games, medical imaging)? To what degree might the spectacle of the male action hero be read as “erotic” in particular contexts, and how might this eroticism be displaced onto displays of violence?
