Ayala Blanco, Jorge. La khátarsis del cine mexicano. / Jorge Ayala Blanco. Ciudad de México: Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, 2016. 467 pages. 23 cm. illustrations. ISBN: 9786070281402; 6070281403; 9786070247989
Essays on productions of Mexican film in 2010-2012 and its very particular imaginary. This is eleventh in series of volumes with similar titles, one for each letter of alphabet through K (for Khátarsis). Focusing in this volume on more than 100 types of catharsis (with invented terms for each, such as khátarsis azarcondenada, khátarsis mediocreodiadora, khátarsis pulsovegetal, and others), Ayala offers deeply personal, ironic, and yet academically and theoretically grounded view of hundreds of movies, divided into sections not by genre but by nature of Ayala's analysis and source of his reflections. Includes director and film index, plus shots from most movies discussed.
