Liverpool 大学出版より、Science Fiction Double Feature: The Science Fiction Film As Cult Text が刊行されています!巽先生寄稿:“Transnational Interactions: District 9, or Apaches in Johannesburg”

Science Fiction Double Feature: The Science Fiction Film As Cult Text では、カルト映画と SFの関係性が再考されます。第一部のイントロに続き、第二部では、Blade Runner, Star Trek および押井守監督『イノセンス』等が取り上げられ、sf/cult 映画の多層性が検討されます。続く第三部では、Firefly, Serenity, Iron Sky 等を対象に、作品と観客の相互作用が考察され、最後の第四部では、“bad movies”と評される作品群 Robot Monster, Plan 9 from Outer Space, Bubba Ho-tep 等が扱われ、これら作品群に見られる転覆的試みが明らかにされます。

巽先生による “Transnational Interactions: District 9, or Apaches in Johannesburg” では、ニール・ブロムカンプ監督映画『第9地区』(2009年)が取り上げられ、本作に通底する SFをめぐる国境横断的文化交渉の歴史が明らかにされます。塚本晋也監督映画『鉄男』シリーズや、開高健・小松左京らが紡いだ「日本アパッチ物語」、およびウィリアム・ギブスン作品がいかに『第 9地区』と交錯するのか?ご関心のある方は、ぜひご一読ください!
