Sue Thornham is Professor of Media and Film at the University of Sussex. Like feminist theory in general, feminist film theory has undergone considerable change and revision since its heady days of the early 1970s. This collection of 23 representative essays and extracts illustrates this history extremely well, providing a useful framework for understanding the variety to be found in feminist film analysis. The range of material, and helpful introductions, make this an ideal teaching text. Film-Philosophy (62).

Professor of Media and Cultural Studies Sue Thornham. Feminist Film Theory maps the impact of major theoretical developments on this growing field-from structuralism and psychoanalysis in the 1970s, to post-colonial theory, queer theory, and postmodernism in the 1990s

Professor of Media and Cultural Studies Sue Thornham. Book Format: Paperback. Feminist Film Theory maps the impact of major theoretical developments on this growing field-from structuralism and psychoanalysis in the 1970s, to post-colonial theory, queer theory, and postmodernism in the 1990s. Covering a wide range of topics, including oppressive images, "woman" as fetishized object of desire, female spectatorship, and the cinematic pleasures of black women and lesbian women, Feminist Film Theory is an indispensable reference for scholars and students in the field.

For a number of years, cinema has been a vital terrain on which feminist debates about culture, representation and identity have been fought. This anthology seeks to chart the history of those debates, bringing together the key statements in feminist film theory in Britain and the US since 1970. The book maps the impact of major theoretical developments on this field - from structuralism and psychoanalysis in the 1970s to post-colonial theory, queer theory and postmodernism in the 1990s - in terms of both theoretical shifts and changes in methodologies.

Great book that teaches you a lot about feminist film; not just in the United States, but throughout the world.

I go to film school, and all too often our courses tend to focus on US-centric views of film, and now and then we have films from the UK. I used this book for a course titled Film, Gender, Sexuality, which was eye-opening for me as a screenwriter.

It's definitely made me a better writer when it comes to writing women. I've been working on a series which features a trans female as one of the major protagonists, and people have told me she is one of their favorite characters I've written. I have to thank this book, as well as my professor.

You'll get the most out of the book if you read it for a class, but reading it on its own will also teach you a lot. I'd recommend this for a movie buff who is comfortable with themselves, and wants to learn more about feminist film.

First of all, let me say that I would give this 5 stars had the articles not been abridged. It is still an incredible selection of articles. And, in most cases, only small bits are cut out and would guess (I haven't done a thorough comparison) they are largely irrelevant.

I am doing an independent study this semester and I've been going all around the internet trying to track down articles that I wanted to read. Then, my professor recommended this text. It had almost all of the articles I had been looking for and a couple other stimulating ones that I had missed. Thornham offers short and valuable introductions at the beginning of each of the six sections. The introductions simultaneously demystify some elements of the texts and set the tone for the section.

The only other review on this product is bizarre. I would question the legitimacy of the reviewer's claim. Why would any professor insult a book that they assigned for a class? If you're teaching feminist film theory, these articles are the bulk of what you should be teaching; they are the most influential articles written from the '70s to the present. If you don't like the articles, you shouldn't be teaching a course on feminist film theory.

Feminist film theory is incredibly engaging and, in my opinion, fun to read. This text is a great introduction for anybody looking to learn a little more about the subject.

Very dry and hard to read.

Exactly as decribed.

I took a class called "Feminist Film Theory" and this was required reading. I love movies and discussing philosophy and feminism and social movements and all, but if I had known how awful a read this would be I would have dropped the class and saved myself the hassle.

I can't complain about the price; it was about half what the campus bookstore was charging and it was in excellent condition. The book itself made me want to tear my hair out. It's a collection of essays by different authors and reading it was like wading through mental quicksand.

After one reading assignment my professor (who chose the book!) told us he wouldn't blame us if everyone had come in with a baggie full of ashes that used to be their textbook. So, yeah, I would only recommend this for someone who enjoys convoluted cinematic name dropping. Not a leisure read, and that's coming from someone who read the unabridged Le Miserable for fun.

This scholarly collection brings together many of the most important articles needed to understand feminist approaches to film study and the study of women in/and film. While dated by the fact that it has never been revised, this is an excellent textbook.
Tegore Tegore
A brilliant and engaging read! Each separate essay takes on a new perspective of feminist film criticism and is a brilliant way to get different perspectives and a great general idea of what feminist film theory is about.

Highly recommend for anyone interested in the topic and just starting out.
