Abstract

In V.F. Perkins on Movies: Collected Shorter Film Criticism, editor Douglas Pye brings together a collection of writings by V. F. Perkins, a foundational figure in the history of film studies who developed one of the earliest film studies courses in the UK and wrote the core text Film as Film (1972). This excellent and essential new volume demonstrates Perkins’s career-long commitment to the questions of style and meaning in the interpretation of cinema, writes Tom Draper. V.F. Perkins on Movies: Collected Shorter Film Criticism. Douglas Pye (ed.). Wayne State University Press. 2020.
