Until "Masculine Interests" not much had been written about men "as men" in the cinema. Now Robert Lang considers how Hollywood articulates the eroticism that is intrinsic to identification between men. He considers masculinity in social and psychoanalytic terms, maintaining that a major function of the movies is to define different types of masculinity, and to either valorize or criticize these forms. Focusing on several films -primarily "The Lion King," "The Most Dangerous Game," "The Outlaw," "Kiss Me Deadly," "Midnight Cowboy," "Innerspace," "My Own Private Idaho," the "Batman" series, and "Jerry Maguire" -Lang questions the way in which American culture distinguishes between homosexual and nonhomosexual forms of male bonding. In arguing for a much more complex recognition of the homosocial continuum, he contends that queer sexuality is far more present in American cinema than is usually acknowledged.
