Abstract:

The Western has traditionally offered American film directors a rich canvas to express visions of the American past. This volume revisits the Western in a transnational context, exploring the role of auteurism. Stars like Jimmy Stewart and international films like Aferim! and Inglourious Basterds are analysed in this new approach to the genre.

According to Jim Kitses (1969), the Western originally offered American directors a rich canvas to express a singular authorial vision of the American past and its significance. The Western's recognizable conventions and symbols, rich filmic heritage, and connections to pulp fiction created a widely spoken language for self-expression and supplemented each filmmaker's power to express their vision of American society. This volume seeks to re-examine the significance of auteur theory for the Western by analysing the auteur director unbridled by traditional definitions or national contexts. This book renders a complex portrait of the Western auteur by considering the genre in a transnational context. It proposes that narrow views of auteurism should be reconsidered in favour of broader definitions that see meaning created, both intentionally and unintentionally, by a director; by other artistic contributors, including actors and the audience; or through the intersection with other theoretical concepts such as re-allegorization. In so doing, it illuminates the Western as a vehicle for expressing complex ideas of national and transnational identity.
