need to try more Mulvey! the introduction laid the groundwork for the rest of the book beautifully, made it an easier read than expected. she brings the Big Names into clear and economical conversation (Barthes, Bazin, Bellour, etc). some of the middle chapters are repetitive/circular but love the one on Kiarostami.
