Shocking Entertainment

Forskningsoutput: Bok/rapportBok

Abstract

This book explores the process of viewing violence. At a time when politicians and the media police viewing habits, it is important to ask the basic question: why do adult movie goers choose to watch violent movies? If these movies are brutalizing, why do people consider them entertaining? This book asserts that men and women respond to violent movies in dynamic and complex ways. With the benefit of in depth qualitative research, this study examines such issues as identification, personal experience and self censorship, and reveals the significance of boundary testing when watching screen violence.
