"Marco Grosoli's Eric Rohmer's Film Theory (1948-1953) comes at a key point in Rohmer studies ... There has never been a better time to fully emerge oneself into the oeuvre (both his filmography and writings) of Eric Rohmer ... [This book] certainly fills a void in Rohmerian scholarship."
- Zachary Ingle, Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television, Vol. 40, No. 4 (2020)
"This is a much-needed contribution to the area of auteur theory, given the many questions raised by (and contradictions inherent in) even the most straightforward attempts to describe the stakes of what was eventually deemed the politique des auteurs."
- Leah Vonderheide, H-France, Vol. 19 (2019)
"It is the scope and depth of this new book that proves [Grosoli] to be one of the deepest thinkers of his generation of film scholars ... [AUP] has done something bold and commendable in giving us this sustained and serious study of film aesthetics."
- Dudley Andrew, Critical Inquiry (2019)
