In his Devil’s Advocate, Marcus Harmes goes back to where the Hammer horror production started, looking at the film from a variety of perspectives.
Studying Hot Fuzz – Neil Archer
By the power of Greyskull! In this first critical study of arguably the most influential British film-makers to emerge this century, Neil Archer considers to what extent a modestly funded film such as this can be considered British at all, and considers the film as a parody of the action movie genre. A must for students of recent British cinema!
Studying Indian Cinema – Omar Ahmed

Studying Early and Silent Cinema – Keith Withall
In his accessible introduction to early and silent cinema, Keith Withall provides both a comprehensive chronology of the period until the birth of sound and also a series of detailed case studies on the key films from the period – some well known (including Griffith’s The Birth of a Nation , Eisenstein’s Strike  and Chaplin’s The Kid ), some perhaps less familiar (including Murnau’s The Last Laugh  and Oscar Micheaux’s Within Our Gates ).
