Summary
Claire Sisco King offers an in-depth study of three prominent cycles of Hollywood films that follow the sacrificial narrative: the early & ndash;to & ndash;mid 1970s, the mid & ndash;to & ndash;late 1990s, and the mid & ndash;to & ndash;late 2000s. From Vietnam-era disaster movies to post-9/11 apocalyptic thrillers, she examines how each film represents traumatized American masculinity and national identity. What she uncovers is a cinematic tendency to position straight white men as America & rsquo;s most valuable citizens & mdash;and its noblest victims
