3 ENGL 6750/7750 Film Studies America was never innocent. We popped our cherry on the boat over and looked back with no regrets. You cant ascribe our fall from grace to any single event or set of circumstances. You cant lose what you lacked at conception. Mass-market nostalgia gets you hopped up for a past that never existed. Hagiography sanctifies shuck-and-jive politicians and reinvents their expedient gestures as moments of great moral weight. Our continuing narrative is blurred past truth and hindsight. Only a reckless verisimilitude can set that line straight. … Its time to demythologize an era and build a new myth from the gutter to the stars. Its time to embrace bad men and the price they paid to secretly define their time. Heres to them. James Ellroy, American Tabloid Movies vs. Television
