Review:

'A fascinating, rich volume offering dazzling insights and incisive commentary on every page, the book not only covers a wide range of concerns and concepts but is also organized and presented in a clear, straightforward manner. Every serious student of film will want this book, which could also serve as a text in advanced film-theory classes. Summing Up: Highly recommended.' - CHOICE

The Routledge Companion to Philosophy and Film features incisive, illuminating, well-documented essays authored by a wide range of established major players and a new generation of philosophers of film. This book will be a godsend for teachers of the subject at all levels as well as an indispensable reference volume for anyone interested in exploring the invitation to philosophical reflection that the medium of film inexorably extends to us.’ - Nancy Bauer, Tufts University, USA

‘This volume distinguishes itself from its competitors by the richness of insight that results from its willingness to acknowledge and explore the sheer variety of ways in which cinema calls for, and can even put in question, the standing interests and concerns of philosophers’.- Stephen Mulhall, New College Oxford, UK
