$35.00


“It’s probably the first graphic novel in history to include the phrase, ‘As James Naremore posits . . . ‘ or, ‘As cultural theorist Slavoj Žižek puts it . . . ‘” - Flavorwire

  • Cartoonist Edward Ross uses comics to illuminate the ideas behind our favourite movies.
  • In Filmish, Ross’s cartoon alter ego guides readers through the annals of cinematic history, introducing some of the strange and fascinating concepts at work in the movies.
  • Each chapter focuses on a particular theme – the body, architecture, language – and explores an eclectic mix of cinematic triumphs, from A Trip to the Moon to Top Gun.
  • Filmish tackles serious issues – sexuality, race, censorship, propaganda – with authority and wit, throwing new light on some of the greatest films ever made.
