“It is essential reading for anyone concerned with the theoretical discussion of cinema, and ideology in general.” —Semiotica

“ . . . Heath is an antidote to the Cinema 101 worldview.” —Voice Literary Supplement

Heath’s study of film draws on Lacanian psychoanalysis, semiotics, and Marxism, presenting film as a signifying practice and the cinema as a social institution of meanings.
