letting the old ways die gender and characterisation in a star is born

Bradley Cooper’s 2018 adaption of A Star Is Born is frequently concerned with questions surrounding past and present, old fashions and new trends – fitting for a movie based on three previous ones.1 ‘Tell me somethin’, girl: are you happy in this modern world? Or do you need more?’ Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) sings to Ally (Lady Gaga) at the beginning of their romance. The lyric suggests that he considers her old-fashioned, romantically so – someone who will appreciate his chivalry and gravelly voiced charm. Yet, at the start of the film, and then repeatedly throughout, Jackson sings that ‘maybe it’s time to let the old ways die’. Is A Star Is Born nostalgic for the past, or discarding it in favour of the future? Is Ally an old soul,…

american horror genre and the post-racial myth in get out

'Do they know I’m black?’ That’s what Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) asks his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), early on in the first act of Jordan Peele’s hugely successful debut film, Get Out (2017). He’s black, she’s white, and they’re about to embark on that classic new-relationship milestone: meeting the parents. This narrative set-up isn’t new – think of the landmark 1967 film Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (Stanley Kramer) – but Peele takes a familiar story to unfamiliar places, his film a slow-burn horror movie interrogating race and racism in contemporary America. It’s a film, says Peele, where ‘society is the monster’.1 Though it was released – and, eventually, won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay – in Donald Trump’s America, Peele penned Get Out as a response to Barack Obama’s presidential…

inner dread psychology and fate in hereditary

Hereditary (2018) – the debut feature from American screenwriter and director Ari Aster – isn’t just a horror film. It’s a psychological family drama, in which grief, anger, fear and deeply troubled personal relationships play out through supernatu-: , , , blurring of the real with the imaginary and, ultimately, demonic possession. As the name suggests, the film is a dark exploration of the ties that bind us, both natural and nurtured: to what extent do we have control over our own lives, as opposed to being inevitably influenced from beyond the grave? At the film’s heart are the Graham family, who live in a large, isolated house in Utah surrounded by forest. The protagonist, Annie (Toni Collette), is an artist, obsessed with creating figurative miniature sculptures that replicate her life…
