5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly thrilling theory., 17 Feb 2003

This review is from: The Oxford Guide to Film Studies (Paperback)
The Oxford Guide to Film Studies succeeds where most other film studies textbooks fail, by making the material it is focusing on accessible and engaging. Although clearly aimed at the Undergraduate Film or Media Studies student, there is much here to interest even the casual reader.
The book covers almost every important area of film studies in some detail, ranging from semiotics to feminism, post-modernism to pornography, film and cultural identity to film history. This range is not only exhaustive, but each essay is written by a top lecturer or researcher in the field. Along with informed commentary and well-placed case studies/film readings, this book just can't help but educate you. Quite simply, much more than your average textbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book for anyone interested in film, 29 Sep 2000

This review is from: The Oxford Guide to Film Studies (Paperback)
This book is a God-send.
Whether you are a film/media student or just interested in cinema this book is for you. Too often are academic essays and textbook inaccessable to anyone other than the author but The Oxford Guide to Film Studies is so easy to read, and take in, that you'll be using it as bedtime reading for children.
It is packed full of everything you need or want to know, from the history of cinema to analysis of individual films and film movement and, at under £20 is incredibly good value for money.

This review is from: The Oxford Guide to Film Studies (Paperback)
John Hill, great book, in good conditions even though it is second hand. It worth the price. Delivery slow but at the end was here, which is the point.
