Product Description


'John Hill's authoritative study is ... extremely welcome, and certain to establish itself rapidly as the standard version of British filmmaking in this decade. ... (It is distinguished by) a generally lucide prose style, informed by theory but not jargon-ridden; firm principles of organisation; the judicious weighing of evidence and competing views; and the ability to combine close analysis of selected films while relating them to broader patterns of political, social and cultural life.' Journal of Popular British Cinema

An excellent and penetrating analysis of an emergent decade.

About the Author

John Hill is Senior Lecturer at the Department of Media and Performance Studies at the University of Ulster at Coleraine, is a Governor of the British Film Institute, and is co-editor of The Oxford Guide to Film Studies (O.U.P., 1998)
