Dossier on Film Theory

We publish here some of the best student papers in film theory from Fall 2012. These thinkers have explored psychoanalytic film theory, the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze, phenomenology, feminist film theory, coming up with striking analyses of Véra Chytilova's Daisies (1966), Danny Boyle's 127 Hours (2010), Douglas Sirk's Written on the Wind (1956), and other films. Congratulations to the writers!
