Product Details

About the Author

JONATHAN BELLER is Associate Professor of English and Humanities at the Pratt Institute.


By critically studying films made since the late 1920s, the author argues that, through cinema, perception and looking has been construed by capital as a value-productive activity.-- "Columbia College Today" "The engaging epilogue is attractive and I find myself returning to passages and ideas from the book . . .. Beller is interesting enough that this reviewer will be seeking out any further publications and development on his premise."-- "Learning, Media and Technology" "Beller's overall thesis . . . is groundbreaking . . . His use of classic and contemporary film theory is ingenious . . . and this volume will inspire scholars to reconsider their approach to perception and the new media."-- "Choice" A great part of [the book's] value lies precisely in the ways in which it works to historicize cultural transitions whose visibility is equally dependent upon broader theories of social change.. . . That is, it emphasizes how important the image has in fact become to the reorganization of the world as we know it.-- "New Review of Film and Television Studies"
