Product Description

Review

'This book addresses a very real gap in existing introductory texts that define, explore, and apply key theoretical concepts within the field of film studies.'
- Alison L. McKee, Assistant Professor, Department of Television-Radio-Film-Theatre, San Jose State University, USA

'This is the book that film students have long been waiting for: a clear, well-written and accessible introduction to film theory. Lucid theoretical exposition and case study film analysis offer readers the most intelligible summary of theory that I have yet encountered.'
- Paul Sutton, Head of Media, Culture and Language, Roehampton University, UK

'I wish I'd had this book as an undergraduate!'
- Lauren Ford, Film graduate, University of Southampton, UK

Format: Paperback
Was told by my lecturer to buy this Film theory book, and I am so glad I did.

Film theory can be incredibly dull and tedious, however this book is clearly set out and written in a tone that is informative and easily understandable.
The book is not too academic, so suitable for all levels, and provides other sources if you want further information.

Would highly recommend this book to any film student, or anyone interested in Film theory.

Format: Paperback
This book was key during my first year as a Film student, as it really shaped my Film Theory unit and helped me get my head around a number of key theories, such Marxism and Postmodernism. What I learned through this book in first year, proved a great foundation and shaping for a number of my second and third year assignments. It is a very well structured book that makes clear points and uses a wide variety of case studies, and I have to say that I could not recommend it more to Film Studies students especially!
