Providing a collection of some of the most provocative and influential writings of film theory in the past thirty years, this anthology aims to provide a polylogue among theorists, deprovincializing the subject. "Film Theory" multiplies the perspectives and positions, the situations and locations, from which film theory is spoken.
"A remarkable synthesis, recommended to anyone who wants to understand the questions and debates that have animated film theory in the twentieth century. Throughout, Stam's discussion is lucid, generous, and intelligent." James Naremore, Indiana University
