Product description

Review

"One of the first things that strikes you about The Oxford Guide to Film Studies is the number of contributors, nearly 70 in all representing a fair cross-section of leading scholarship mainly (though not exclusively) from the United Kingdom and the United States. This is a great strength." (The Times Higher Education Supplement, May 1999)

"Prominence is given to the politics of gender and sexuality, an accurate reflection of the balance of debates within the discipline over the past two decades at least." (The Times Higher Education Supplement, May 1999)

"In its coverage of major theoretical issues, provides a sound introduction for undergraduate film-studies students and perhaps even more usefully, for students on courses on which film is only a part." (The Times Higher Education Supplement, May 1999)

"Featuring entries from most of the reigning luminaries in the field, this solid, exhaustive volume is possibly the best all-in-one guide currently available. The contributors supply skilful overviews of the major critical approaches, and there are a few surpises ―- for instance, pornography is firmly ensconced as a respectable academic subject." (Sight and Sound, May 1998)

substantial book that, particularly in its coverage of major theoretical issues, provides a sound introduction for undergraduate film-studies students and, perhaps even more usefully, for students on courses of which film is only a part. (Steve Blandford, The Times Higher Education Supplement)
