Reviews

"Crisp, up-to-date and well-informed, Guy Austin's book traces cinematic attitudes to national identity, sexuality, the changing 'polar' (thriller) and heritage ... A novelty is his treatment of the 'cinema du look', comprised by the films of Jean-Jacques Beineix, Luc Besson and Leos Carax, contextualised here by writings from French critics." --"Sight and Sound" (on the first edition)
