Beverly Kilbourne has it all. She's beautiful, she's popular, and she gets to kill whoever she wants. The problem is that Beverly doesn't want it all. She doesn't want to be a friend, daughter, or cheerleader anymore. She just wants to be a killer. And if she can get through just one more year of high school, then Beverly can leave home for good and stop pretending that she's anything but a butcher. Anthony has nothing. He's a loser. A nobody. But he's got one more year to muster up the courage to tell Beverly that he loves her and he's determined to do it before they graduate and she leaves his life forever. After a senior year filled with drama, confessions, and decapitations, the clock finally runs out on graduation day. As the diplomas get handed out, the question still remains. Will the geek get the girl? Or will the girl slaughter everyone?

Men's Cinema offers a fresh theorisation of men in Hollywood cinema via a theoretical discussion of definitions of masculinity and the close textual analysis of classic and contemporary films. Through an examination of mise-en-scene, Men's Cinema moves beyond discussions of representation and narrative to an exploration of the physical or instinctive effects of cinema and how we are invited to engage with, desire or identify with Hollywood's vision of men and masculinity. By delineating how Hollywood has built up and refined the language of men's cinema through a series of recurrent, refined tropes, this book critically explores masculinity and the concept of a male aesthetic within film.Films discussed include: The Deer Hunter, Dirty Harry, Goodfellas, Inception, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Once Upon a Time in the West, Point Break, Raging Bull, Rebel Without A Cause, Reservoir Dogs, Sherlock Holmes, There's Always Tomorrow, The Wild Bunch.
