Cinemas of the Mind: A Critical History of Film Theory
bookposted on 2023-06-08, 06:27 authored by Nicolas Tredell
Film theory is one of the most fascinating recent adventures of human thought. The compelling medium of cinema has provoked a wide range of directors, writers and thinkers to engage in vigorous debate about its relationship to art, morality, psychology, politics and philosophy. This Critical History vividly reconstructs and intervenes in that debate. It combines key extracts from the major works of film theory with in-depth analysis and trenchant critique, and argues for a revitalised understanding of the relationship of film to reality in the wake of postmodernism.
