Reviews

A testament to both the breadth of the director's work and to the editor's achievement in filling such a gaping void in film studies.--Jim Hemphill "Film Quarterly "
It isn't normal magazine fluff or promotional hype...Kathryn Bigelow's career is given deep reflection and the thoughts in this book illuminate her work from an intellectual perspective.--Manta Ray Pictures
