I know all of you incredibly smart and very knowledgable about various topics in the realm of media studies and social sciences.
I am working on an series of articles about movies made between the end of the Cold War and 9/11. I want to focus in on the unique social situation that made this era of cinema, its interest in the changing and globalizing world of the time, the focus on a “pre-millennial tension” and “end of history” ideas, and its perspective on the emergence and popularization of new technologies during the time.
If any of you have any book, documentary, essay recommendations about this period I would greatly appreciate it. The work can be contemporaneous to the time or retrospective, they can be wildly off base or completely on point, I am just looking for perspective on how we viewed this time period and the movies made during it.
