Beginning film studies

Andrew Dix

Published by Manchester University Press

Beginnings MUP

  • Beginning film studies fills an urgent need in the academic film studies market, offering coverage of the field that is detailed and scholarly, but also compact and affordable
  • Like others in the series, it is not only useful, it is also a pleasure to read
  • It unpacks complex ideas and is not afraid of metaphors, similes and even jokes
  • Dix takes as axiomatic the importance of introducing readers to key debates in the discoure of film studies, e.g. Soviet montage, auteurism and screen theory
  • As well as covering the essential historical ground, it is also up-to-the-minute in its mapping of the field, looking at 'post-cinematic' society, movie fan fiction, stars' websites and film consumption
  • The Stop and Think sections are designed to encourage student learning, and they are reinforced by extensive and detailed lists of secondary reading and online resources
