Strictly Subversive: Films of False Liberation.
Resnick, David
Comparative Education Review, v40 n2 p204-11 May 1996
Examines two recent films--"Scent of a Woman" and "Strictly Ballroom"--that project stereotypical negative portrayals of educational institutions and their limited capacity for reform. Both films bring their audiences to view educational institutions as worthy of destruction and, by focusing on "quick fixes," fail to address the difficulties of incremental educational change. (SV)
