The Routledge Encyclopedia of Filmscomprises 200 essays by leading film scholars analysing the most important, influential, innovative and interesting films of all time. Arranged chronologically, 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.
