Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This new and enlarged edition of Peter Wollen's influential and higly regarded work explores the way in which new approaches to the cinema can be combined with a new approach to aesthetics. Divided into three sections, Part One deals with the work of S.M. Eisenstein, both as a director and theorist of his art. Part two concerns the auteur theory and investigates the recurrence of themes and images throughout a director's career. Part three shows how the study of cinema can be considered a province of the general study of signs. Throughout this richly illustrated book the relationship of the cinema to the other arts is kept constantly before the reader. This new edition includes a retrospective chapter by the author.

Synopsis:

"Without doubt, it is the best study of cinema published in English for years." --Cinema

"... a major achievement... drawing on the results of aesthetic inquiry--from Shaftesbury and Lessing to Jakobson and the formalists--in order to relate the cinema to wider areas of linguistic theory and theory of art." --Times Literary Supplement

Synopsis:

This is a new and enlarged edition of Wollen's influential and highly-regarded work which explores the way in which a new approach to the cinema can be combined with a new approach to aesthetics. The book, a breakthrough in critical writing on the cinemas, is divided into three main sections. Throughout this richly illustrated book the relationship of the cinema to other arts is kept constantly before the reader.
