Format: Paperback
The British film industry seemed to be fading out completely coming up to the 1990s, A) because of the poor amount of money that the films were making and B) because the number of films that were being made were rising, in turn not getting as much money in production. Many thought that resurgence was a false hope and that even if the films started to get popular, Britain's film industry would only fall again. David Puttman concluded as well that "in Nicholas Ridley, we've got a secretary of state who gives the impression that he would regard his greatest success at the department of trade and industry if he could close the British film industry down', `British film on the cutting room floor' independent on Sunday 10 June 1990 pg 20.

However the critics that had been picked up were longing for returns to films such as Gandhi (Richard Attenborough 1983) however no one could have perceived that there would be young British directors that wanted there own independent success and notoriety like such American cult directors like Sam Raimi and the Cohen brothers.

This is where the series of essays, commissioned by the British film industry starts. In British cinema of the 90s you don't just have a publication of the best films of the 90s and how great this era was for Britain. Instead you have solid essays and arguments from eighteen contributors ranging from professors at universities, critics and writers for such magazines as sight and sound and of course workers for the bfi. Each essay takes one part of the 90s British films and why its important, its influences or its influenced, each essay is complex and in depth giving a thorough understanding and knowledge.
