Reviews

'Although the idea of the gaze as object played an important part in Lacanian psychoanalysis, it has rarely been found useful in practical film criticism. Pietro Bianchi's impressive analyses are here therefore groundbreaking, and his accounts both of Lacanianism and of modern French film theory are impressively lucid and eloquent. This is a stimulating and original book in all respects.'- Professor Fredric R. Jameson, Knut Schmidt-Nielsen Professor of ComparativeLiterature and Director of Institute for Critical Theory, Duke University'Jacques Lacan's theory of vision, centred around the gaze as an object, is arguably the most complex theory of vision to have been conceived. Pietro Bianchi's subtle book leads the reader by the hand through all of its complexities, explaining it in clear conceptual moves, displaying its vast ramifications and developing it further as a magnificent tool for the understanding of cinematic practice. The best introduction for those who want to get acquainted with it, but far more than an introduction - a genuine insightful new work by a young theorist about whom we are going to hear a lot.'-Professor Mladen Dolar, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia
