About the Author

EMILIE BICKERTON is a journalist and critic based in Paris. She is also on the editorial board of New Left Review.


"Compelling - a reminder that contemporary film criticism could do with being more unapologetically clever - more ingenious, more argumentative, more French." London Review of Books "The French New Wave directors all came from Cahiers du Cinema, a magazine that turned film criticism upside down in the 1950s. The salvoes of its sagacity are finely charted by Bickerton, who also laments the recent slide into dumbed-down mediocrity." Nigel Andrews, Financial Times Books of the Year "Valuable and highly informative." Philip French, Observer "Has many of the ingredients of a good thriller... Emilie Bickerton's alert prose manages to convey the drama and passionate confrontation of ideas, and she shows a keen eye for revealing detail." Times Literary Supplement "What I love is Bickerton's certainty and courage... Bickerton does a well-told, thoroughly researched job." Nick James, Sight & Sound
