J. Hoberman, senior film critic for "The Village Voice", argues that in 1960s cinema, the distinction between political figures and glamorous movie stars disintegrated. Here, he reinterprets key Hollywood movies ("Dr Strangelove", "Bonnie and Clyde", "The Wild Bunch" and "Shampoo", among others) to find the latent politics of 60s cinema and to offer a history of the era's political culture. With often comic meditations on the decade's movies, as well as its personae - with Che Guevara, JFK and Ronald Reagan considered alongside John Wayne, Jane Fonda and Dirty Harry - Hoberman describes how our mass-mediated politics entered the realm of the fantastic, converting feared radicals into media heroes and vice-versa.
