FILM MOBILITY AND URBAN SPACE: A Cinematic Geography of Liverpool
Les Roberts (Liverpool: Liverpool University Press, 2012)
Preface and Acknowledgements
"This is the most interesting film book I have read in years. . . . an excellent book that is consistently interesting, theoretically smart, and a pleasure to read. [Film, Mobility and Urban Space is] a serious contribution to (and intervention within) film studies (and other disciplines)." Ben Highmore, Professor of Cultural Studies, University of Sussex, 2011.
"This book gives a detailed map of what has been done recently in relevant fields of study. Roberts’s use of a perspective from cinematic geography provides a unique possibility to study the city as built on mobility and as constituted by multiple connections, and to trace the image of the “city-in-film” both in the past and in the future." Transfers 3 (2), 2013.
