The Routledge Encyclopedia of Films comprises 200 essays by leading film scholars analysing the most important, influential, innovative and interesting films of all time. Arranged alphabetically, each entry explores why each film is significant for those who study film and explores the social, historical and political contexts in which the film was produced. Ranging from Hollywood classics to international bestsellers to lesser-known representations of national cinema, this collection is deliberately broad in scope crossing decades, boundaries and genres. The encyclopedia thus provides an introduction to the historical range and scope of cinema produced throughout the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This encyclopedia provides essays on nearly 200 films by 80 contributors from film and media studies programs worldwide... There is a little something here for all lovers of film. A chronological list and two A-Z lists itemize the films; entries are in English and in the language of origin... Each essay goes beyond the usual film criticism, delving into the historical, political, and social aspects of not only the film itself but also the times, places, and people involved with its making. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." -R. J. Powell, SUNY Cortland, in CHOICE
