"This book offers an extensive, encompassing reflection and analysis of Metz’s oeuvre in English [...] The complexity and thematic variety of contributions grants this book the potential of becoming core reading both for film students and film theorists."
- Marija Weste, Linkoping University, Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television, Vol. 39, No. 3, 2019
"The book is conceived both as an homage and as a contribution to current film and media theoretical debates. [=] The readers are offered a material-rich and detailed discussion of Metz including documents from his archived inheritance. The book indicates links and possibilities of application of his reflections to contemporary audiovisual productions of meaning and it offers readers not yet familiar with Metz an introduction to his thinking on a high theoretical and analytical level."
