Graphic cinematic violence is a magnet for controversy. From passionate defenses to outraged protests, theories abound concerning this defining feature of modern film: Is it art or exploitation, dangerous or liberating?

Screening Violence provides an even-handed examination of the history, merits, and effects of cinematic "ultraviolence." Movie reviewers, cinematographers, film scholars, psychologists, and sociologists all contribute essays exploring topics such as:
-- the origins and innovations of film violence and attempts to regulate it
-- Hollywood's Production Code and the evolution of the ratings system
-- the explosion of screen violence following the 1967 releases of Bonnie and Clyde and The Dirty Dozen, and the lasting effects of these landmark films
-- the aesthetics of increasingly graphic screen violence
-- the implications of our growing desensitization to murder and mayhem, from The Wild Bunch to The Terminator
