Product Description

Review


'The third edition of this excellent, illustrated collection of essays on British cinema provides an overview of the key issues, debates and history. First published in 1997, it has been expanded to include case studies of individual films, and several new essays on subjects such as the representation of women in 1950s cinema and the birth of British Asian cinema in the 90s. Its range is impressive.' - Peter Smith, The Guardian

'...a delightful gateway into the rich world of British cinema.' - Simon Brown, Viewfinder

I bought this for a British film narrative module for my BA in English literature. It was useful in my wider reading for all my research. It does not go into great depth about any one film but gave a good overview which was particularly useful for understanding film genre.
