Nathan Abrams, a film scholar based in Wales, argues that since 1990 cinematic treatment of Jews has undergone a significant change, depicting a more complex and complete range of Jewish characters and characteristics than ever before. Many older stereotypes have been resuscitated (often on steroids) in an ironic but self-accepting way, even as they were joined and challenged by more modern views.

The new Jew and Jewess in cinema are eroticized and sexualized

The new Jew and Jewess in cinema are eroticized and sexualized. Through cinema, Abrams’s book seeks to highlight the transformation of the socioeconomic position of Jews, mainly in the United States, but also elsewhere. In this it seems to represent wider tendencies in the writing on the question of Jews and cinema, tendencies about which one ought to ponder. Yet is the place of Jews, Jewishness, and Judaism in France or Italy, for instance, one and the same as the place of Jews, Jewishness, and Judaism in the United States?

A good survey of Jewish representation in modern film. However, I was really looking for more analysis and theory. The most fascinating chapter is the one on toilets. I am being absolutely serious.

There are over three hundred films listed in the filmography. Most are from the post 1990 period. The chapters are organized into detailed categories such as The New Jewish Mother, Jewish James and Jane Bonds, Passive Jews, Queer/tough Jews, Senior Sexuality and many more topics. This book is perfect for anyone who wants to get the films and study the subject in an orderly way. A detailed critical analysis of all the films would make the book to long.
