Eyeless in America, the Sequel: Hollywood and Indiewood's Iraq War on Film
Blackmore, Tim
Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, v32 n4 p317-330 Aug 2012
This article builds on conclusions drawn in the article "Eyeless in America," by the same author and considers how 50 American films about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan intended to function as what Jacques Ellul called "integration propaganda" fared. This article considers and rejects a number of theories about why most feature war films failed between 2002 and 2012 and proposes what war films might look like in the near future. (Contains 1 figure and 3 notes.)
