Death of the Strong, Silent Type
Film International, vol. 7., February 2009
Christopher Sharrett, Ph.D.
Department of Communication and the Arts
Dr Sharrett's article on changing images of masculinity in
contemporary films was named on the cover of a 2009 issue of Film
International. This article focused particularly on revisionist
westerns and continues a theme that Sharrett has developed in a recent
article in Cineaste, as well ("No Country for Old Men: Comic
Dread in the Modern Frontier"). Sharrett has been a frequent
contributor to Cineaste, one of the most influential periodicals of
film analysis and criticism.
