Understanding film theory

Christine Etherington-Wright, Ruth Doughty

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    Theory has a bad reputation. It often sends a shudder of despair down the spine of students and academics alike. The reasons for this are because it is challenging, it is difficult, it can take time to grasp and can often leave the reader feeling inadequate and frustrated. Theory can often seem old-fashioned and stuffy and therefore it can be hard to see its modern-day relevance. The aim of this book is to try to disassociate theory from these negative connotations. It is for this reason that the book has been written. In short, our intention is to take the ‘fear’ out of theory.
