offers here a very detailed and well-informed survey of terrain of a sort that the more squarely philosophical contributions to the discussion have by and large ignored...Smith is very good./Alex Neill/The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism.
Welcome and important book ... considerable value of this book ... It develops an original, complex, articulated theory and fruitfully applies it to a wide variety of films ... an impressive work that in its lucidity and careful argumentation sets intellectual standards that most current film theory does not come even close to matching. ( Berys Gaut, University of St Andrews, British Journal of Aesthetics, Vol. 37, No. 1, Jan '97)
Thrillers, weepies, horror movies and melodramas evoke characteristic kinds of emotional response, yet emotion is not much examined by film or literary theory. This work discusses emotional responses to films, integrating them into a theory of engagement, or identification with, characters in cinematic and literary fictions. Films and filmmakers discussed include: "The Accused"; Hitchcock (including detailed analyses of "The Man Who Knew Too Much" and "Saboteur"); Godard; Ruiz; Bunuel's "That Obscure Object of Desire"; Dovzhenko's "Arsenal"; Preminger's "Daisy Kenyon"; Bresson's "L'Argent"; Eisenstein's "Strike"; and Melville's "Le Doulos". This book should be of interest to students of film, cultural, literary and media studies, as well as students of literary theory and philosophy.
