Wagner traces how old and new films set in Berlin created a collective urban nostalgia for the city's best and most conciliatory pasts in the face of its renewed prupose as the all-German capital. Exploring films such as Walter Ruttmann's Berlin: Symphony of a Great City, Wim Wenders's wings of Desire, Tom Tykwer's Run Lola Run, and Wolfgang Becker's Good Bye, Lenin!, the book illustrates how film has repeatedly remade the image of the city. Wagner focuses on four key periods: the golden 1920s, when the city was a major filmmaking center; the prewall 1950s, when Berlin had two idealogically opposed film industries; the politically transformative late 1980s and early 1990s; and the hyped start of the twenty-first century." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9780816691746 Donation: donated by Senses of Cinema Contents: Introduction: Auf wiedersehen, Berlin! -- Remake: Berlin symphonies and the myth of the weltstadt -- Generation: a 1950s place for us -- Virtuality: cinema, archive, and the interactive map of Potsdamer Platz -- Orientation: geographical didacticism and the X-films of new Berlin -- Epilogue: Berlin returns, again More info

Often requiring time and effort to fully grasp it and seeming rather old-fashioned, it can be difficult to approach the subject with enthusiasm and appreciate its relevance to modern day.
Understanding Film Theory aims to disassociate theory from these connotations and bring a fresh, contemporary and accessible approach to the discipline. Now comprehensively updated in a second edition, the book’s sixteen chapters - including a new chapter on Adaptations - continue to provide an insight into the main areas of debate. Taking the application of theory as its central theme, the text incorporates a number of innovative features: ‘Reflect and Respond’ sections encourage readers to engage critically with theoretical concepts, while seminal texts are concisely summarised without oversimplifying key points.
Throughout the book the authors illustrate why theory is important and demonstrate how it can be applied in a meaningful way, with relevant case studies drawn from both classic and contemporary cinema including: Once Upon a Time in the West (1968), Run Lola Run (1998), The Hunger Games (2012), Blue is the Warmest Colour (2013) and The Lego Movie (2014). Additional case studies address key genres (the British Gangster film and the musical), film movements (Dogme 95), individual actors (Ryan Gosling, Judi Dench and Amitabh Bachchan) and directors (Alfred Hitchcock and Guillermo del Toro).
Understanding Film Theory is an approachable and extensive introduction to film theory. It is the ideal entry point for any student studying film, using clear definitions and explaining complex ideas succinctly.
