About the Authors
  • Este libro ofrece al lector el primer estudio completo y profundo sobre este género, desde los seriales del cine mudo a las recientes películas de arma blanca (stalkers), desde Alfred Hitchcock a Quentin Tarantino, desde The Great Train Robbery a L. A. Confidential. Martin Rubin muestra de qué manera este género visceral y cargado de emociones ha utilizado el suspense, la velocidad y las sensaciones fuertes para mantenernos clavados en nuestras butacas durante todo un siglo de cine estadounidense. El thriller es quizá el género cinematográfico más popular, pero también el más difícil de definir. Admite gángsters y fantasmas, cascos espaciales o sombreros de fieltro. Infunde a nuestro familiar mundo moderno un espíritu de aventuras exóticas como las de tiempos pasados. Nos produce placer y, al mismo tiempo, angustia: la ansiedad, la vulnerabilidad y el escalofrío forman parte de la emoción del thriller.

    • Primer título sobre géneros en esta colección
    • Género cinematográfico con gran número de adeptos
