The BFI Film Classics series introduces, interprets and celebrates landmarks of world cinema. Each volume offers an argument for the film's 'classic' status, together with discussion of its production and reception history, its place within a genre or national cinema, an account of its technical and aesthetic importance, and in many cases, the author's personal response to the film.


Reviews
'Part of my admiration for this intelligent and judicious contribution to the BFI Film Classics - a series that by now may qualify as the most successful and title-heavy book series in the history of film criticism …' - Jonathan Rosenbaum

'Magnificently concentrated examples of flowing freeform critical poetry.' – Uncut

'A formidable body of work collectively generating some fascinating insights into the evolution of cinema.' – Times Higher Education Supplement

'The series is a landmark in film criticism.' – Quarterly Review of Film and Video

'Allows for relatively freeform speculative writing in a way that more conventional academic writing does not.' - Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television
