Metamodernism, Music and Movies: Metamodern Musicals!
Metamodernism, Music and Movies - Metamodern Musicals is an essay in comic book form that looks at pop music centered movies as a subgenre of musical cinema.
That’s right, we’re calling High Fidelity (2000, directed by Stephen Frears, starring John Cusack) a musical. But not just any musical – it’s a Metamodern Musical.
In this Free comic, we take a look at metamodernism and its relationship to postmodernism and how this cultural movement lets us understand a whole range of pop music movies as musicals. From Wayne’s World to The Boat That Rocked.
A Further Reading list is also included to find out more about metamodernism.
