Reviews

An important contribution to the literature on Weimar cinema, originally published in 2010, now available in an economical paperback edition. . . . The editor, Christian Rogowski . . . places in focus not the canonical films of the time like Caligari, Nosferatu, or Metropolis, but instead important films of the "second rank" and specific thematic connections. . . . Almost all the essays are conceived and formulated at a high level and make visible connections between film and society in the Weimar period. The approximately sixty images are helpful to the reader. . . . HANS-HELMUT PRINZLER, WWW.HHPRINZLER.DE [A]n enormously important and didactically helpful intervention . . . . [The book] lives up to the promise of its title and should soon become mandatory reading for everyone interested in new perspectives on Weimar Cinema. FILMBLATT The chapters excel in historically contextualizing their respective films. MONATSHEFTE Goes beyond a mere reevaluation of film classics in matters of film and topic selection. . . . The essays offer readers fresh perspectives on . . . a cornucopia of undiscovered or relatively unknown filmic gems, paired with long overdue approaches of media studies . . . . [I]t genuinely rediscovers Germany's filmic legacy. GERMAN STUDIES REVIEW [T]he scholars' excitement about exploring this hitherto uncharted territory is palpable and infectious. The balance of theoretical scaffolding and ambitious storytelling make the articles . . . perfectly suited for undergraduates and should find ample use in film classes...[and] indeed should inspire more classes on the early years of German cinema. WOMEN IN GERMAN NEWSLETTER Rogowski's outstanding collection moves beyond the familiar canon to reevaluate the diverse legacy of Weimar film...[P]rovide[s] new social, historical, and aesthetic contexts for understanding Weimar cinema and introduce[s] readers to less-familiar popular, abstract, documentary, and genre films. CHOICE A bold attempt at expanding the field and revising the standard literature. . . . on a formerly neglected set of films and topics. A detailed filmography provides useful information on availability. TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
