Editorial Reviews


"...the strength of the book is how it uses the concept of imagined seeing to develop an account of cinematic narration, which in turn informs the aesthetic interpretation of film... The book thus has much to recommend it to anyone interested in issues at the intersection of epistemology and aesthetics."

"Seeing Fiction in Film is among the most rewarding works on film and film narrative that are currently on offer. Though intricately argued, it is surprisingly easy to follow. Though extremely sophisticated, it keeps one thoroughly engaged. If, like me, one has not followed the ins and outs of the debate on the perception and cognition of cinematic fiction, after reading this work, one will be well prepared to pursue it further. If one has followed it, this work is essential reading for moving on to the next phase of the debate." -- Mind
