The essays collected here reflect the spectacular rise of Iranian cinema in recent years as well as the strong contributions of contemporary filmmakers from countries such as Belgium, Canada, China, Israel, Lebanon, Scotland, and Spain. But In Search of Cinema does not neglect the best recent films from major film-producing nations like the United States, France, and Italy and includes retrospective pieces on the careers of Ingmar Bergman and Woody Allen as well as several essays on the interrelationship between film form, or film genres, and drama and the novel, the two forms from which the cinema continues to draw a wealth of its material.

Bert Cardullo is Professor of Media and Communication at the Izmir University of Economics in Turkey. He is the author, editor, or translator of a number of books on film and drama.Review:
"Cardullo's highly readable and often brilliantly elucidating essays reveal intricate connections and parallels between film content and film form. There are few recent books that provide this kind of close reading of contemporary films. Cardullo offers a refreshing alternative to both the facile star-gazing monographs that one can find in any bookstore and the arcane publications that deal with phenomenology, sexual-identity politics, historiography, and the cognitive dissection of film styles and techniques." Andr Loiselle, Film Studies, Carleton University
