'Irish Cinema in the Twenty-First Century is aimed at an academic readership and, achieving impressive comprehensiveness in a compact package, it deserves to become a standard text on an exciting, still-developing period in Irish culture. There is useful material here on horror, Northern Ireland, animation and the continuing underrepresentation of women. Her decision to begin each chapter with analysis of a short film lends the book a satisfyingly eccentric structure.'
Donald Clarke, Irish Times, August 2019
'With the relative lack of published literature on the Irish film industry and its product, Barton's book is a most welcome and authoritative discourse on the subject.'
'This is a rich, insightful book. It is intellectually rigorous but also written in an accessible, clear and concise manner, and is essential for those with an interest in Irish cinema. It will likely stand alongside Barton's earlier works as a touchstone of Irish film studies.'
