The most up-to-date critical guide available, Film Studies: Critical Approaches covers all the significant theories, debates, and approaches to the subject. A team of international experts provides a clear and comprehensive overview of all the major theoretical and critical approaches involved in film analysis, including detailed coverage of established critical traditions--such as semiotics, feminism, and psychoanalysis--as well as important new areas of study such as film audiences and reception, queer theory, and identity politics. Chapter summaries and further reading lists help students to assimilate the material. Ideal for courses in film criticism and textual analysis, Film Studies: Critical Approaches guides students through the maze of theory to the heart of the subject.

Pamela Church Gibson is Senior Lecturer in Contextual and Cultural Studies at the London College of Fashion. She is the co-editor of the "Oxford Guide to Film Studies."
