Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Film studies have of course been influenced by major theoretical developments in postmodernism and poststructuralism, admits Fuery (film and critical theory, U. of London), but the study of film has also affected those critical movements. He looks at such aspects as love, terror, the body, and passion; and theories such as feminism, psychoanalysis, philosophy, and semiotics to offer alternative methods for analyzing film.
