Spanish Cinema of the New Millennium provides a new approach to the study of contemporary Spanish cinema between 2000 and 2015 through the analysis of films that represent both "high" culture and "popular" culture. The two film cultures are represented by Goya Award–winning films and box-office successes. Thomas G. Deveny's examination of the country's most important films in this 16-year period provides a rigorous academic analysis of contemporary Spain's film industry, identity, and culture.
Review Quotes
Patricia López-Gay, Hispania
"By putting into conversation films that respond to the majority taste with others that bear the qualitative label of the Academy, Deveny invites the reader of our time to disarticulate the reductive dichotomy that stands between the allegedly 'low' Spanish cinema and that supposedly 'high'. . . . Another consideration to highlight, within the same panoramic reflection that Deveny formulates in the final chapter, is the encouraging proposal—established in previous studies on European cinema—to rethink Spanish cinema produced in this century as a force or a motor of an ongoing intercultural dialogue that unites from diversity."
