Postmodernism, New Hollywood and Women’s Films

  • Roberta Garrett


One of the key problems for anyone attempting to look closely at a particular field of postmodern cultural production is the overwhelming scope of theoretical and popular media definitions of what constitutes postmodern culture. The popular circulation of the term ‘postmodern’ has expanded to the point where it can encompass everything in the contemporary cultural sphere and thus tell us very little about any specific cultural or artistic form. Ironically, about the only thing that does seem clear is that, as both a critical and periodising concept, the term ‘postmodernist culture’ has been applied in quite different ways to various artistic and cultural products.
