Making a Meal of It: Writing About Film

Author(s): Brian McFarlane; Ian Britain (Introduction by)


For more than forty years, readers of The Age newspaper have learned about the latest films through the interpretations and judgements of Brian McFarlane, now himself a Melbourne institution of sorts. Over that time, McFarlane's reviews of, and articles on, film have been featured in Australian Book Review, Cinema Papers, Inside Story, Meanjin, Metro, Screening the Past, Senses of Cinema, Sight & Sound, and many other newspapers, magazines, and journals. This selection of McFarlane's writings on film, taken as a whole, tells a story about what has brought us back to the cinema again and again, from recent times to a now more distant past. In his attuned but easy style, sprinkled with wit and insight, this guide will bring back memories, fill gaps in the reader's knowledge, trigger conversations, and inspire delight and enthusiasm. Making a Meal of It is a first-rate resource for film buffs and excellent dinner-table company. (Series: Cultural Studies) [Subject: Film Studies, Journalism, Media Studies]
