From the Publisher:
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.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.
