Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Authoritative yet accessible, this is a must-have guide to what is both a fascinating area of study and arguably the greatest art form of modern times.

Book News Annotation:

Aimed at students and teachers of film studies, this reference provides in-depth coverage of key theoretical terms and the various debates surrounding them. The hundreds of alphabetically arranged, cross-referenced entries also include historical overviews of important genres and film movements. For the third edition, Hayward (U. of Exeter) has added new entries on such topics as Bollywood, action movies, and female masquerade. At the back of the volume are found an extensive bibliography and three indexes: film title, name, and subject.
