The class was restructured so that this book was no longer a good fit. However, I'm looking to create a course around this textbook - excellent book!
Excellent and interesting text to use to give recommended films to students. I will be using this to aid in the construction of assessments that can be directly related to films; this would be good for presentations.
Explores sociological theories through cinematic studies acting as a useful resource in the classroom.
I found this book very useful for my graduate students. The book's essays help them to understand films sociologically.
I've really enjoyed this text. It includes recent films and provides accessible theoretical and sociological analyses (e.g. of gender, race and class) that will be an excellent resource for my students.
I focus on gender in media and the focus of this book was broader than that.
This is an excellent and much needed text in providing a sociological approach to film, exploring both theoretical and applied elements, and includes analysis of a fantastic and up-to-date range of films.
