      Frances L. Restuccia is an English Professor at Boston College, where she teaches contemporary literary and cultural theory, the modern novel, the world novel, and film/film theory. She is the author of Amorous Acts: Lacanian Ethics in Modernism, Film, and Queer Theory (Stanford UP).   So for the sake of this discussion, and our latest deep dive into Binary Theory I’m going to focus on film criticism. Film criticism has devolved into a puzzling, maddening space.

      This book is a lively and provoking introduction to film theory. It is suitable for students from any discipline but is particularly aimed at students studying film and literature as it examines issues common to both subjects such as realism, illusionism, narration, point of view, style, semiotics, psychoanalysis and multiculturalism. It also includes coverage of theorists common to both. Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My library.

They employ a variety of critical approaches, from/5(21). Author(s): Todd McGowan, Sheila Kunkle. Series: Contemporary Theory Series.
