The Major Film Theories

An Introduction

J. Dudley Andrew

Both a history of film theory and an introduction to the work of the most important writers in the field, Major Film Theories compares the thought of such major theorists as Munsterberg, Arnheim, Eisenstein, Balazs, Kracauer, Bazin, Mitry, and Metz. Andrew places their theories in the context of larger intellectual movements, including Gestalt Psychology, Russian Formalism, and Existentialism.
