Salem Press is proud to announce Critical Insights: Film, the newest expansion to the renowned Critical Insights series. Each volume in the Critical Insights: Film collection focuses on a single film classic from American cinema, providing detailed insight and contextual analysis about each subject. These brand-new titles make perfect additions to academic, public, and community Film Studies collections everywhere.

In a 1964 interview, Orson Welles famously remarked, "Among those whom I would call 'younger generation,' Kubrick appears to me to be a giant." Noted for his breathtaking cinematography, groundbreaking use of music, and strict perfectionist style, Stanley Kubrick remains a cinematic giant today. This volume analyzes the legendary director and his techniques in such films as 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, and Full Metal Jacket

This inaugural volume in the Critical Insights Film series contains insightful essays analyzing the reasons for this film classic’s acclaim, as well as its influences on the film industry as we know it today. Essays are 2,500 to 5,000 words in length and offer analyses of Stanley Kubrick based on cultural and historical contexts, close viewings from particular critical standpoints (from traditional to postmodern), comparisons in the light of other films, and critical receptions over time. All essays are written by renowned film scholars of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, providing in-depth, academic coverage of all key issues and interpretations. Finally, the volume's appendixes offer a section of useful reference resources:
