Film as Social Practice explores the feature film as entertainment, as narrative and as cultural event. Graeme Turner discusses the major theoretical issues surrounding the history of film production and film studies, using them to examine the cultural function of film and its place in our popular culture. Turner considers issues of film institutions and their place in political culture, and the relevance of cultural theory from the US, UK and Australia in explaining the social practice of making, watching and talking about feature films. This revised edition of Film as Social Pratice includes a selection of popular mainstream films such as Batman, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and Home Alone as well as new film stills. The book also incorporates theoretical material, includes feminist theory and the female spectator, and the arguments have been revised throughout to take account of recent developments in film and cultural theory and changing trends in cinema.
