About this book

Coates presents the face in film as a place where transformations begin, reflecting both the experience of modernity and such influential myths as that of Medusa. This is exemplified by a wide range of European and American films, including Ingmar Bergman's Persona .

Reviews

'Sharing Barthes' and Bergman's premise that the human face remains central to cinematic art, Coates' new book draws on film theory, philosophy, art history, and cultural studies to produce fresh, startling insights on the films that truly matter. The range of examples is as impressive as the erudition.' - Lloyd Michaels, Allegheny College, USA
