From the Publisher
Editors Note Peter Wollen's influential and highly regarded work [which] 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.
