Dilys Powell is the doyenne of British film critics. Reviewing for the Sunday Times, and more recently Punch, she has built up a reputation for perceptive assessment. Divided into thematic sections, this selection from over fifty years of criticism reveals her views on such topics as British cinema, the French, film stars, genres, adaptations, and censorship. In addition to critiques of such key films as Citizen Kane and Rashomon, there are entertaining pieces on biblical epics, biopics, and the musical, and sections on films she loathed and those she tried hard to like.

In this first collection of film writing from Evergreen Review, the legendary publication's important contributions to film culture are available in a single volume. Featuring such legendary writers as Nat Hentoff, Norman Mailer, Parker Tyler, and Amos Vogel, the book presents writing on the films of Jean-Luc Godard, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Ousmane Sembene, Andy Warhol, and others and offers incisive essays and interviews from the late 1950s to early 1970s. Articles explore politics, revolution, and the cinema; underground and experimental film, pornography, and censorship; and the rise of independent film against the dominance of Hollywood. A new introductory essay by Ed Halter reveals the important role Evergreen Review and its publisher, Grove Press, played in advancing cinema during this period through innovations in production, distribution, and exhibition. Editor Ed Halter began working on this book in 2001 with Barney Rosset, using his personal files and interviews with him as initial research.

"A really impressive and comprehensive collection of the key writings in the field. The editors have done a terrific job in drawing together the various traditions and providing a clear sense of this rich and rewarding scholarly terrain. This collection is as wild and diverse as the films that it covers. Fascinating." .Mark Jancovich, Professor of Film and Television Studies, University of East Anglia, UK .."It's about time the lunatic fans and loyal theorists of cult movies were treated to a book they can call their own. The effort and knowledge contained in The Cult Film Reader will satisfy even the most ravenous zombie's desire for detail and insight. This book will gnaw, scratch and infect you just like the cult films themselves." .Brett Sullivan, Director of Ginger Snaps Unleashed and The Chair .."The Cult Film Reader is a great film text book and a fun read." .John Landis, Director of The Blues Brothers, An American Werewolf in London and Michael Jackson's Thriller ..Whether defined by horror, kung-fu, sci-fi, sexploitation, kitsch musical or �weird world cinema�, cult movies and their global followings are emerging as a distinct subject of film and media theory, dedicated to dissecting the world�s unruliest images. ..This book is the world�s first reader on cult film. It brings together key works in the field on the structure, form, status, and reception of cult cinema traditions. Including work from key established scholars in the field such as Umberto Eco, Janet Staiger, Jeffrey Sconce, Henry Jenkins, and Barry Keith Grant, as well as new perspectives on the gradually developing canon of cult cinema, the book not only presents an overview of ways in which cult cinema can be approached, it also re-assesses the methods used to study the cult text and its audiences. ..With editors� introductions to the volume and to each section, the book is divided into four clear thematic areas of study � The Conceptions of Cu..Written in a lively and accessible style, The Cult Film Reader dissects some of biggest trends, icons, auteurs and periods of global cult film production.

The book is arranged chronologically, and each chapter contains an introduction by the editors on the key developments within the period, followed by a classic piece of historical research about that period. Various types of film history are undertaken in the articles, so that students can become familiar with different types of film historical research. For example, topics include the history of audiences; exhibition; marketing; censorship; aesthetic history; political history; and historical reception studies. The book is therefore designed to provide students with a narrative history spine while simultaneously introducing them to different approaches to the study and research of film history. Concentrating on the plurality of the 'historical turn' in film studies, this book demonstrates that film history is, and should be, about more than simply key films, directors and movements.

Humphrey Jennings (1907-1950) has long been recognised as one of Britain's greatest film directors. His studies of national life, and particularly his three wartime films Listen to Britain, Fires Were Started and A Diary for Timothy, invaluable documents of their times, remain among the highest achievements of world cinema - humane, innovative and poetic. Jennings's films are rich due to the drama of subject matter and the range of passions and skills he brought to his work.

How did audiences across the world respond to the films of The Lord of the Rings? This book presents findings from the largest film audience project ever undertaken, drawing from 25,000 questionnaire responses and a wide array of other materials. Contributors use these materials to explore a series of widely speculated questions: why is film fantasy important to different kinds of viewers? Through marketing, previews and reviews, debates and cultural chatter, how are audiences prepared for a film like this? How did fans of the book respond to its adaptation on screen? How do people choose their favorite characters? How was the films' reception shaped by different national and cultural contexts? The answers to these questions shed fresh light on the extraordinary popularity of The Lord of the Rings and provide important new insights into the global reception of cinema in the twenty-first century.
