Abstract :
Yann Roblou. The Art of War. Based on the analysis of five contemporary Hollywood-made films, this paper tries to underline the current trends of the multi-faceted relationship between the cinema industry, the Pentagon and the White House. The object of the demonstration is to show that there is an adequation between the fictional discourse and the official orientations given to the foreign policy of the United States. The strategies adopted by the entertainment industry in order to produce a discourse readable by as large an audience as possible range from the most traditional rhetorical devices proper to the genre of the war film, to the subtlest ideological manipulations.
