Excellent, excellent piece of discourse on film history. A true anthology. All you need to get an in-depth understanding. Was used as 445 class textbook.

I'm reading this for a film theory class and the essays are absolutely ridiculous. Very few are immediately understandable, some are just ridiculous (Mulvey's male gaze theories, for example, though they're probably widely accepted and referred to), and all use incredibly technical language and jargon where they could easily be using colloquial language. (For example: 'dyadic' is used instead of 'binary', 'dual', 'dichotomy', or other more commonly used words. I encountered 'antinomy' and honestly thought that somebody had misspelled and misused 'antimony'. Words like 'diegetic' are good to know because they directly apply to film theory, but these? No. (In other news, 'antinomy' is so ridiculous that the spellcheck on this review thinks that it isn't a word. Great.)) I've read the essays on auteur theory several times and it still took two class sessions to understand what the heck the point was.

I mean, I'm pretty sure that most film theory is BS anyway, but this takes it to a whole new level.

this book arrived fast, just as I needed it to for college. It is brand new and has all its pages without torn edges. The packaging was excellent.
