  • Examines Franju's films from the perspective of gender and genre, areas which have never before received serious, thorough consideration
  • Detailed readings of individual films, grouped thematically rather than chronologically
  • Offers a new synthesis of existing work on Franju's cinema aesthetic, as well as new personal responses to the films
  • A full introduction and conclusion places Franju's career in the context of his lifelong commitment to France's cinema institutions
