Full description of the book "Hollywood Under Siege : Martin Scorsese, the Religious Right, and the Culture Wars":

In the late 1980s, the major conservative Christian groups suffered a series of public setbacks. In "Hollywood Under Siege", Thomas R. Lindlof asserts that the Christian right realigned itself and tried to solidify its self-appointed role as moral regulator of the entertainment industry in response to Martin Scorsese's "The Last Temptation of Christ". The film, which was banned from release at some theaters and publicly protested at many others, became a tipping point for the American culture wars. At stake was the freedom of artistic expression from government and religious intervention."The Last Temptation of Christ" did not PDF simply alienate audiences of the Christian right but incited them. Lindlof chronicles the many setbacks the filmmakers experienced, from production problems to the uproar following the film's release and the launch of a crisis control plan at the studio. Lindlof conducted interviews with major players behind the movie - including Martin Scorsese, Paul Schrader, Willem Dafoe, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Michael Ovitz - and explores the film's effect on the American cultural and political landscape. Combined film study, studio history, and cultural analysis, "Hollywood Under Siege" closely examines the film that jeopardized and reenergized Martin Scorsese's career and served as ePub flash point for the ongoing ideological conflicts between Hollywood and the religious right.
