Editorial Reviews

Review

A powerful examination of how movies . . . present and reveal the world and how we see and read the presentation. Geographers should make a useful contribution to the overall scholarship of film study. (The Journal of Popular Culture)

I believe this book genuinely breaks new ground....The essays brought together in this collection by Aitken and Zonn illustrate the richness and diversity of insights that are possible when cultural geographers bring their particular perspectives to the analysis of film. (Jacquie Burgess, University College London)

An excellent collection of essays which in their entirety provide multiple angles on three dimensions of space and film: the concrete geographies which underlie cinematic production, the inherent spatiality of filmic representation itself, and the socio-spatial relations that are reproduced and transformed via this powerful medium. Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in cultural studies in general and representation in particular. (John Paul Jones, University of Kentucky)

Stimulating and provocative; an important contribution to an important debate. (John Rennie Short, Syracuse University)

Nowhere has such a fine collection of essays argued so forcefully on the power of film to shape and mediate human experiences of place and environment. (Kenneth E. Foote, The University of Texas at Austin)

This collection will provide something for a wide number of readers with different interests and some good introductory or case studies for students. (Antipode: A Radical Journal of Geography)

This is a long-overdue and much-needed analysis of the intersection between the spaces of film and the spaces of geography. A diverse and entertaining collection of essays that should open up new vistas in geography and critical studies. (Michael Dear, University of California, Berkeley)

It provides ample evidence of the importance of spaces, places, and landscapes to the visual discourse of cinema, and, more provocatively, in places also suggests that filmic spaces may inflect the constitution of everyday spaces. The editors and participants are to be congratulated both on marking the need for research on the geographies in film and for contributing in important ways to that research. (Ecumene)
