Alex speaks with Professor Garry Leonard (UofT English) about several Hollywood films, including It’s a Wonderful Life, It Happened One Night, and Pretty Woman, as they relate to his current book project, Six Ways of Looking at Modernity: Cinematic Genre and the Structure of Modern Subjectivity. Key topics of discussion include the relationship between cinema and modernism, the structure of cinematic genre, and the representation of the capitalist market and professionalisation in the Hollywood romance.
