BFI Film Classics

BFI Film Classics is a series of finely written, illustrated books that introduce, interpret and celebrate landmark films of world cinema. Each volume offers an argument for the film’s ‘classic’ status, together with a discussion of its production and reception history, its place within a genre or national cinema, an account of it’s technical and aesthetic importance, and in many cases, the author’s personal response to the film. The BFI Film Classics series now includes titles previously published separately in the BFI Film Classics and the BFI Modern Classics Series.

Editorial Advisory Board:

Geoff Andrew, Edward Buscombe, Lalitha Gopalan, Lee Grieveson, Nick James, Laura Mulvey, Dana Polan, B. Ruby Rich, Amy Villarejo, William P. Germano and Alastair Phillips
