[Commlist] New book - Britpop Cinema: From Trainspotting to This Is England

Mon Jun 03 14:25:49 GMT 2019


Intellect is thrilled to announce that /Britpop Cinema: From Trainspotting to This Is England <>/ is now available.

The Britpop movement of the mid-1990s defined a generation, and the films were just as exciting as the music. Beginning with /Shallow Grave/, hitting its stride with /Trainspotting/, and going global with /The Full Monty/, /Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels/, /Human Traffic/, /Sexy Beast/, /Shaun of the Dead/, and /This Is England/, Britpop cinema pushed boundaries, paid Hollywood no heed, and placed the United Kingdom all too briefly at the centre of the movie universe.

Featuring exclusive interviews with key players such as Simon Pegg, Irvine Welsh, Michael Winterbottom and Edgar Wright, /Britpop Cinema /combines eyewitness accounts, close analysis and social history to celebrate a golden age for UK film.
