Introduction to Film Studies Reviews


""I know of no other introductory film text that covers so much ground, nor that so readily connects up film theory and discourse with work in mass and popular culture. The revised edition keeps up with changes in technology...the discussions of Hollywood are particularly illuminating...I highly recommend An Introduction to Film Studies.
