English Filming, English Writing Paperback – April 5, 2010
"... ambitious and expansive...." ―Lucy Scholes, TLS - Times Literary Supplement, 2/18/11
"Beautifully written... surprising and persuasive... but never in the sort of language that might deter the non-specialist." ―Brian McFarlane, Monash University
"Hunter draws attention to some works that have received little critical attention and traces the cultural influences and inflections that make them work.... This book provides a fascinating contribution to studies of British cinema but also opens out into much broader concerns regarding national cultures." ―Jim Leach, Brock University
"I recommend this book to those who take pleasure in cinema; I prescribe it to those who need to learn how to write about the aesthetics of cinema, not the ideology of culture." ―Screening the Past, Issue 30 - 2011
"A substantive, seductive, charming piece of work, this book is a paradigm of good sense and clarity―neither pedantic nor trendy.... Highly recommended." ―Choice, November 2010
