Recent Comments "Teaching Film"

This is a book giving an explanation about where film studies are now (a "state of the field" put out by MLA). Lots of articles about different topics. Nothing for the layman. I thought it was very interesting that there is not an article on Marxist critique but there is an article about film and disability studies. Most of it was not that interesting, but the last article on teaching film and the internet was good.
