Hollywood Utopia applies a range of interdisciplinary strategies to trace the evolution of ecological representations in Hollywood film from 1950s to the present. Popular science fiction, westerns, nature and road movies are extensively analysed while privileging ecological moments of sublime expression often dramatized in the closing moments of these films.
