"Cinema and the City is an exceptional reader that interrogates a range of issues linking cities, film, and globalization. With essays of exceptionally high quality this is an intriguing, engaging and informed work that should be accessible to an array of disciplines and students." Leo Zonn, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
"Stitching together the complex and multiple intersections between film, cities, urban cultures and globalisation is no simple task, as any number of very good single-authored works will demonstrate. Despite these difficulties, Shiel and Fitzmaurice's excellent anthology rises to the occasion and, in the process, pushes film studies beyond its usual terrain of textual, audience and production analyses to relocate the subject matter within urban sociology [...] As the relationship between film and the city continue to develop as a focus of critical inquiry, Cinema and the City stands as one of the more accessible and innovative entry-points into the issues" Shiel and Fitzmaurice, Urban Studies.
