About the Author

Deborah Shaw is Reader in Film Studies at the University of Portsmouth


Shaw concisely and efficiently utilizes a number of theoretical fields in her discussion, including careful scrutiny of the marketing, profits and the attendant creative freedoms and constraints these suppose, in addition to carrying out close textual analysis of key stylistic and technical characteristics of the films. This is an important book that convincingly argues that these three amigos, who are the most successful filmmakers of Mexican origin in financial and international terms, are exemplars of transnational filmmaking and demonstrates the multiple ways in which their 'films have caused critics to rethink classificatory borders' (225). -- .
