Description

The book integrates theoretical discussion and textual analysis with primary source historical research, particularly into film reception. The case studies question received understandings of European film history, and offer new insights into canonical films already familiar to many readers. It is the first book length study of the subject and includes new insights into Fritz Lang's Metropolis, Eisenstein's October and the Griersonian Documentary as well as 'forgotten' films of the period. It is a useful teaching aid, with detailed analyses of films taught on most film studies courses
