Leo Zonn, University ofNorth Carolina, Chapel Hill.
"Stitching together the complex and multiple intersectionsbetween film, cities, urban cultures and globalisation is no simpletask, as any number of very good single-authored works willdemonstrate. Despite these difficulties, Shiel and Fitzmaurice'sexcellent anthology rises to the occasion and, in the process,pushes film studies beyond its usual terrain of textual, audienceand production analyses to relocate the subject matter within urbansociology [...] As the relationship between film and the citycontinue to develop as a focus of critical inquiry, Cinema and theCity stands as one of the more accessible and innovativeentry-points into the issues" Shiel and Fitzmaurice, UrbanStudies.
