A Totally Bodacious Nineties Christmas: Festive Cinema of the 1990s (Paperback)
If the 1980s had been the decade that had brought festive cinema out of its wilderness period and back into the public consciousness as never before, the 1990s would continue to reinvigorate the genre while also returning with fresh purpose to the central themes of its post-war Golden Age. The result would be a mixture of originality and traditionalism which was to prove successful at the box-office as well as reinforcing the relevance of the Christmas movie amongst critics and commentators.
From the author of "The Golden Age of Christmas Movies" and "A Righteously Awesome Eighties Christmas", this book explores some of the most prominent festive films of the nineties - as well as discussing some of the decade's more unusual yuletide features. Moving from madcap comedies to family dramas, by way of many other subgenres in-between, the topics which arose throughout the Christmas cinema of the decade are considered along with some unexpected movie facts.
The 1990s marked a period of lightning-fast technological development and substantial cultural change, which had wide-ranging effects on the world of cinema. "A Totally Bodacious Nineties Christmas" will take you on a journey through the festive movies of this tempestuous era, blending nostalgia for the nineties with an examination of how that decade's films had a major impact on the genre which persists even to the present day.
