Dissolving Views: Key Writings on British Cinema
Cassell, 1996 - History - 264 pages
British cinema is far richer and more diverse than is generally recognized, as this new collection of key writings on British film culture-from the conversion to sound in the late 1920s to the present day-testifies. Dissolving Views brings together a number of important and influential essays previously published elsewhere, several of them in carefully revised versions and two of them appearing in English for the first time.
