John Peterson asked:
"Can anyone suggest a publication on the subject of the male gaze?"
Here are two good places to start:
Mulvey, Laura. "Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema." Screen 16.3
Modleski, Tania. _The Women Who Knew Too Much_. " (Sorry, I don't have
the full citation information on this one, but it was published in the
mid-eighties, I think.)
Modleski takes Mulvey to task in an examination of Hitchcock's films,
particularly noting the ways in which the male gaze is
reformulated/reconfigured in many of them.
Screen-L is sponsored by the Telecommunication & Film Dept., the
