Movie Info

Tough Guise: Violence, Media and the Crisis in Masculinity examines the relationship between pop culture's construction of masculinity and the reality of being a man in late 20th century American society. Social critic Jackson Katz hosts the program, arguing that there exists a contemporary crisis in masculinity. The media offers men certain "manly" roles to play, but these roles often play out violent and selfish attitudes, traits harmful to women. Using examples from Howard Stern's television work, Stone Cold Steve Austin's wrestling matches, the movies Good Will Hunting and Boyz 'n the Hood, and more, Katz makes his case for pop-cultural change and a broader definition of contemporary masculinity. ~ Betsy Boyd, Rovi
