Cinema Studies:
The Key Concepts

This is the essential guide for anyone interested in film. Now in its
second edition, the text has been completely revised and expanded to
meet the needs of today’s students and film enthusiasts. Some 150 key
genres, movements, theories and production terms are explained and
analysed with depth and clarity. Entries include:

• auteur theory
• Black Cinema
• British New Wave
• feminist film theory
• intertextuality
• method acting
• pornography
• Third World Cinema
• War films

A bibliography of essential writings in cinema studies completes an
authoritative yet accessible guide to what is at once a fascinating area
of study and arguably the greatest art form of modern times.

Susan Hayward is Professor of French Studies at the University of
Exeter. She is the author of French National Cinema (Routledge, 1998)
