Masculine Jealousy and Contemporary Cinema provides new insights
into the relationship between masculinity and jealousy through the
study of representations of male jealousy in contemporary Hollywood
cinema. It argues that male jealousy has played a key role in the
psycho-cultural shaping of Western masculinities and male fantasy,
and can be used to explore the losses and insecurities of
contemporary masculinities. Candida Yates develops that discussion
through the study of representations of male jealousy in
contemporary Hollywood films, where the emotional and moral
outcomes of jealous triangles are now often ambiguous. Such
ambiguities resonate with cultural images of 'masculinity in
crisis' and the alleged feminization of masculinity within popular
culture more generally. These themes are explored in depth through
five film case studies where the male stars and their cultural
reception in the press are discussed alongside the potential of
such images for more complex and less destructive formations of
masculinity and jealousy.
