The contemporary study of film is dominated by narrative theory – yet films include scenes and images which do not perform a narrative task but nevertheless provoke an emotional response. Stella Hockenhull looks at the painterly dimensions inherent in the medium of film, arguing that an aesthetic analysis enables a fuller appreciation of the visual 'spectacle' of cinema. In a reading of the formal aspects in film imagery in contemporary British films spanning social realist, melodrama and horror genres, Hockenhull demonstrates how the spiritual aspects of landscape and nature mobilize a Neo-Romantic effect. She traces the influence of Romanticism and notions of the Sublime in key British films including 'Sweet Sixteen', 'The Queen', 'Ratcatcher', 'Eden Lake', '28 Days Later', 'My Summer of Love' and 'The Last Great Wilderness'. Operating at the intersection between film theory, art theory and aesthetics, this is a vital contribution which enables a fuller, multidimensional understanding of cinematic experience.
