A propaganda da violência: filmes de guerra de Hollywood

Tom Burns

Resumo


O presente artigo examina o cinema americano sobre a Segunda Guerra Mundial, espaço exemplar para representações de violência que, no entanto, foram sujeitas a diversas restrições de cunho político: por parte de agências governamentais, que queriam projetar uma imagem positiva da nação e dos aliados; e por parte dos próprios estúdios, que queriam explorar as possibilidades dramáticas do cinema de guerra, mas, ao mesmo tempo, sofriam pressão do governo para não mostrar representações “realistas” que pudessem causar perturbações na frente interna.


Palavras-chave


Linguagem de Violência; Censura; Cinema de Guerra.
