Post-Theory is absolutely timely as a call to reform the field of film studies making ideas happen ipad. Bordwell and Carrolltwo of the most prominent names in the fieldadvocate pluralism, open mindedness, film theories over film Theory, and the need for an ongoing critical dialogue making ideas happen ipad. There is no other book like it making ideas happen ipad.Andrew Horton, author of Writing the Character-Centered Screenplay With Post-Theory, David Bordwell and Nol Carroll challenge the prevailing practices of film scholarship making ideas happen ipad. Since the 1970s, film scholars have been searching for a unified theory that will explain all sorts of films, their production, and their reception; the field has been dominated by structuralist Marxism, varieties of cultural theory, and the psychoanalytic ideas of Freud and Lacan. Bordwell and Carroll ask, why not employ many theories tailored to specific goals, rather than searching for a unified theory? Post-Theory offers fresh directions for understanding film, presenting new essays by twenty-seven scholars on topics as diverse as film scores, audience response, and the national film industries of Russia, Scandinavia, the U.S., and Japan. They use historical, philosophical, psychological, and feminist methods to tackle such basic issues as: What goes on when viewers perceive a film? How do filmmakers exploit conventions? How do movies create illusions? How does a film arouse emotion? Bordwell and Carroll have given space not only to distinguished film scholars but to non-film specialists as well, ensuring a wide variety of opinions and ideas on virtually every topic on the current agenda of film studies. Full of stimulating essays published here for the first time, Post-Theory promises to redefine the study of cinema.
