Pressestimmen"While it is possible to take issue with Lewis over the organisation of the book, the value and quality of the essays contained within it is incontestable."--Martin Flanagan, University of Sheffield, SCOPE " ... lively, informative, and densely argued volume." - Frederic Raphael, The Spectator "This collection is the first I know of to examine contemporary American cinema from so many viewpoints ... The authors provide us with new ways of understanding not just the theory and history of recent American film practices, but also the mix of government action, industrial policy, and audience desire that has played such a role in producing the movies of the last generation." - Eric Smoodin, Author of Disney Discoure: Producing the Magic Kingdom
