    One thought on “Concepts in Film Theory”

    1. Absolutely painful to get through. I only give 2 stars simply for the value of its references to many books I might want to read, which undoubtedly will be more valuable than this one. Dudley Andrew, this man with two first names, manages to pluck arsehairs from various disciplines, without really shedding light in particular on how these disciplines have benefited film analysis. He has in fact almost nothing to say about film at all. He grinds over the most obvious notions but in an often abstr [...]

    2. One might presume that at this point this volume would be quite dated, and while of course it doesn't cover developments in film theory over the last several decades, I have encountered few other sources that manages to be clear and elucidating while also being gracefully written in and of itself. A reference book I find myself turning to often.

    3. I really am not into aesthetic theory at all, but I figured I need to actually understand it to move ahead. I read this like 4 years ago and didn't understand it at all, but now it makes a bit more sense. Obviously it's a little dated, but it provides a good foundation from which to tackle more contemporary theories. While I can't say I enjoyed reading it, it was worthwhile.

    4. A bit less enjoyable than its predecessor - more abstract. Though I did like the chapter on narrative, which was straight lit-crit.
