Donnelly's deeply persuasive analysis of the 'occult' nature of audio-visual synchronisation is a major contribution to film sound studies. His sophisticated theorisation deserves a very warm welcome from scholars, students and film enthusiasts interested in both the aural and visual domains. (David Cooper, Chair of Music and Technology and Dean of the Faculty of Performance, Visual Arts and Communications at the University of Leeds)
Although Donnelly cites examples from dozens of films, his latest book in the long run is about sound-image synchronization of the sort that humans experienceand sometimes puzzle overalmost every day. Fascinating! (James Wierzbicki, University of Sydney)
