The Return of the Epic Film

Genre, Aesthetics and History in the 21st Century

Edited by Andrew B.R. Elliott

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Brings together a variety of approaches which broaden the arsenal of traditional Film Studies and lays the foundations for future research into epic films
  • The first collection to address and challenge the return of the epic film in the twenty-first century and our tendency to group these films together
