Abstract

Four particularly important books of film theory were published in 2012, two by established scholars in film—Miriam Bratu Hansen and Thomas Elsaesser—along with two timely collections of essays by twentieth-century theorists, Siegfried Kracauer and Georg Lukács, with the latter collection featuring an excellent commentary by Ian Aitken. The chapter is divided into four sections: 1. Cinema and Experience; 2. Siegfried Kracauer’s American Writings; 3. Lukácsian Film Theory; 4. The Persistence of Hollywood.
