BFI Film Classics

Sort by

Described as “possibly the most bountiful book series in the history of film criticism” by Jonathan Rosenbaum, The BFI Film Classics series introduces, interprets and celebrates landmarks of world cinema. Each volume offers an argument for the film's 'classic' status, together with discussion of its production and reception history, its place within a genre or national cinema, an account of its technical and aesthetic importance, and in many cases, the author's personal response to the film.
