Despite the longevity of animation and its significance within the history of cinema, film theorists have focused on live-action motion pictures and largely ignored handdrawn and computer-generated movies. Thomas Lamarre contends that the history, techniques, and complex visual language of animation, particularly Japanese animation, demands serious and sustained engagement, and in The Anime Machine he lays the foundation for a new critical theory for reading Japanese animation, showing how anime fundamentally differs from other visual media.
Thomas Lamarre teaches East Asian studies, art history, and communication studies at McGill University.
