By Shannon Smithey on November 7, 2013
Format: Paperback
I used this book for my Politics Through Film class. It's the only book I know of that provides a real social science analysis of films. The authors do a great job of comparing public opinion among various elites, including Hollywood producers, directors, etc, to other groups in society, and showing how those views are reflected in the films they make. It's much better at providing data than is typical of the humanist approach or the post-modern arguments that are more common in film studies.
