Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book contains terrific lists of films collected under key thematic headings--history films, films about politics, about sex, about spin. As a dazzling representation of spin, Wag the Dog (1997), according to Palmer, "may be the decade-defining film of the nineties." Bolstered by postmodern theory, the "spin" thesis is interesting, and descriptions of individual films are illuminating."--Choice
