Pop fiction; the song in cinema.

Ed. by Steve Lannin and Matthew Caley.

Intellect, Ltd.

This volume considers how popular music is used in filmmaking. Each of 12 essays offers a close examination of one song within a particular cinematic context. For example, one essay looks at the song "Man of Constant Sorrow," from the film Oh Brother Where Art Thou (2000), as an allusion to the directors' Jewish roots. The contributors are cultural critics and academics representing a variety of disciplines, including film studies, musicology, contemporary art, sociology, and marketing. Distributed in the U.S. by ISBS.
