'Clearly written, extensively resourced and an invaluable reference that deals with all the aspects involved in academic film studies (and more).'
–Jon Brazil, Senior Teaching Fellow, School of Performance and Cultural Industries, The University of Leeds, UK
'This updated textbook offers students new to the study of film an engaging and informative introduction to its core areas and critical debates. The structural organisation and style of the writing in Studying Film make this text easy to use and apply to a range of key concepts, and the exercises and examples given always help to illustrate and support further independent thinking. Studying Film is a great start for anyone wanting a good, basic and clear understanding of key topics in film, from history and language to contemporary cinema and media convergence.'
–Claire Hines, Senior Lecturer in Film and Television Studies, Southampton Solent University, UK
'I think the text does an excellent job of outlining the many, many ways to 'do film studies.' Further, it does so in an understandable way that would be accessible to undergraduate students.
–Dr Jonathan Cavallero, Lecturer, Penn State University, USA
'The glossary is worth the price alone'
