Reviews

"With excellent essays, close textual analysis of films and further reading lists from some of the leading lights in the area, the book has proved an invaluable asset for those negotiating their way through the minefield of ideas and conflicting theories that make up the study of film...This weighty, yet still surprisingly succinct tome also has an excellent sense of design allowing the reader to dip in and out and pull out the relevant information as they wish...obvious must for any student of film...excellent resource." Laurence Boyce Films and Festivals
