What People are Saying About This

James Naremore

A bracingly intelligent anthology that signals the emergence of a new cultural formation. Theoretically well informed and engagingly readable, it dissolves distinctions between academics, journalists and enlightened amateurs, and it has a truly collaborative quality. Whatever changes the film medium may have undergone over the past two decades of digital technology and late capitalism, this volume proves that the love of cinema is renascent and as vital as ever.

James Naremore, Indiana University
