Screen Methods: Comparative Readings in Film Studies is a collection of essays that aims to look at the way in which the theory of Film Studies, an increasingly popular subject at Universities, is approached both historically and in the 21st century. Divided into two sections (and five parts), it focuses on classical theories, culture-based approaches, early and modern theory, statistical approaches and the (potential) futures of critical film theory. Films featured include Went the Day Well? (1942), Rear Window (1954), Star Wars (1977), Philadelphia (1993), Twelve Monkeys (1995) and Gladiator (2000), as well as films of Peter Greenaway and Charlie Chaplin.
