Representing Religion in Film

  • By Craig Martin, Tenzan Eaghll, Rebekka King
$37.99
Product Description

This is the first full-length exploration of the relationship between religion, film, and ideology. It shows how religion is imagined, constructed, and interpreted in film and film criticism. The films analyzed include The Last Jedi, Terminator, Cloud Atlas, Darjeeling Limited, Hellboy, The Revenant, Religulous, Earth, and The Secret of my Success.

Each chapter offers:
- an explanation of the particular representation of religion that appears in film
- a discussion of how this representation has been interpreted in film criticism and religious studies scholarship
- an in-depth study of a Hollywood or popular film to highlight the rhetorical, social, and political functions this representation accomplishes on the silver screen
- a discussion about how such analysis might be applied to other films of a similar genre

Written in an accessible style, and focusing on Hollywood and popular cinema, this book will be of interest to both movie lovers and experts alike.
