I picked this book up at the campus library because I've recently become quite interested in silent cinema and this book has several brief sections on it, including a quick summary of the theories of folks like Jean Epstein and Sergei Eisenstein.

At times Stam's summaries of other people's critical stances and theories was helpful (especially when so often you have to read confusing translations of the originals) but usually I would have preferred just an anthology of theory and the original articles rather than Stam's interpretations and opinions.
The selection is very good, esp. in comparison with Braudy and Cohen (some overlap but some significant differences). Bob Stam's essays in particular are great on their own, as a positioning, and as introduction.

I'm reading parts of this and find it very interesting, especially the articles about race and colonialism. I have not thought of film this way, and am so glad I found this at the good ole library.
A good summary of several film theories over history. A good start!
