During the late 1980s and early 1990s, a discourse of masculinity crisis precipitated the appearance of a number of what Susan Jeffords describes as rearticulations of screen masculinity, which influenced the production of a group of films whose narrative diegeses reaffirmed the heteronormative, hypermasculine façade onscreen. These films are identified and defined in this book as remasculation pictures, or narratives that showcase the hero s oscillation between two oppositional expressions of screen masculinity. In the rhetoric of the remasculation film, the protagonist s emasculation initiates a quest to remasculate by reaffirming the dominance and authority of the hypermasculine archetype.
