Description

Films studied in this book are The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, Juliet of the Spirits, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Easy Rider , and one television series, The Prisoner . These works have been selected, Clark writes, because all of them feature "central characters who struggle in some sense to free themselves from the suffocating darkness and oppression of their cultural environment." The gist of Clark's argument is that during the sixties, the conflict between the individual and society deepened, moving from a social to a spiritual issue. No references, bibliography, index, or information about the author is provided. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)show more
