#854: The Cinema of Attractions, Part One

October 21, 2013

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #853: Apparatus Theory

The title of this comes from a Tom Gunning essay, “The Cinema of Attractions: Early Film, Its Spectator and the Avant-Garde,” which I read recently for the media studies class I’m taking. It’s scholarly, so not the easiest read for the uninitiated, but if you’re curious, I thought it was great. You can find a PDF of the essay here, hosted by Columbia University.
