Fraiman assesses the work of various contemporary male figures -- bad boy innovative filmmakers Quentin Tarantino, Brian De Palma, and Spike Lee and such celebrity professors as Edward Said, Andrew Ross, Henry Louis Gates Jr., and Lee Edelman -- all of them on the left. She argues that despite their hipness -- or because of it -- these men consistently relegate women to the margins and feel free to ignore the insights of feminist scholars. Fraiman discusses movies like Pulp Fiction and Do the Right Thing, as well as other popular forms from pornography to rap music.
