John Schlesinger (2935 words)
While in the '60s, Schlesinger seemed to have believed in some sort of collective negotiation by which a social equilibrium could be achieved, his later work offers a society where the individual is alone if she or he is not able to cope with the rapidly changing society.
Schlesinger's depiction of stereotypes (unusual for him) may have been, on one hand, an expression of his own insecurity as a person who lived and worked in both cultures; on the other hand, it may also have been what the British and US producers required, in particular, easily identifiable characters for an international mass audience.
