Reviews

"Prince's book pushes us to reconceptualize the interactions of economics and ideology.... It evokes and invokes the richness of filmmaking practices-both mainstream and alternative-even as it gives a harsh and perhaps tragic image of a cultural form, the cinema, losing its specificity and even identity in the vast synergistic networks of control at the end of the twentieth century."-Dana Polan, Film Quarterly; "Stephen Prince's A New Pot of Gold is good at sustaining a coherent historical narrative and critical commentary on the 1980s-a period when video and film grew closer together, and when Hollywood came under the control of global capitalism."-James O. Naremore, author of Acting in the Cinema
