9780436098727: Signs and Meaning in the Cinema (Cinema One)

A revised second edition of the text, this work explores the way in which a new approach to the cinema can be combined with a new approach to aesthetics. The book is divided into three main sections: the first deals with the work of S.M. Eisenstein, both as a director and theorist of his art. The second concerns the auteur theory and investigates the recurrence of themes and images throughout a dirrector's career. The third section shows how the study of cinema can be considered as a province of the general study of signs.

From the Back Cover:

This is a new and enlarged edition of Wollen's influential and highly-regarded work which explores the way in which a new approach to the cinema can be combined with a new approach to aesthetics. The book, a breakthrough in critical writing on the cinemas, is divided into three main sections. Throughout this richly illustrated book the relationship of the cinema to other arts is kept constantly before the reader.
