In The Cognitive Semiotics of Film, Warren Buckland argues that the conflict between cognitive film theory and contemporary film theory is unproductive. Examining and developing the work of 'cognitive film semiotics', a neglected branch of film theory that combines the insights of cognitive science with those of linguistics and semiotics, he investigates Michel Colin's cognitive semantic theory of film; Francesco Casetti and Christian Metz's theories of film enunciation; Roger Odin's cognitive-pragmatic film theory; and Michel Colin and Dominique Chateau's cognitive studies of film syntax, which are viewed within the framework of Noam Chomsky's transformational generative grammar. Presenting a survey of cognitive film semiotics, this study also re-evaluates the film semiotics of the 1960s, highlights the weaknesses of American cognitive film theory, and challenges the move toward 'post-theory' in film studies.

New Vocabularies in Film Semiotics provides a comprehensive lexicon of semiotic concepts. It defines over 500 critical terms and describes how they have been used, building a film semiotics dictionary. The authors address key aspects of contemporary semiotic and cultural debate - Genette's narratology, the feminism of Mary Ann Doane, Bakhtinian concepts and the work of Jean Baudrillard. The book explores linguistically-oriented terminology in cinema studies; the semiotics of film narrative; the psycho-semiology of the cinema; and intertextuality, discourse and transtextuality. References to individual films drawn from the work of a wide range of directors including Orson Welles, D.W. Griffiths, Alain Resnais, Jean-Luc Godard, Alfred Hitchcock, Jean Cocteau and Chantal Akerman illustrate the concepts under discussion.

Despite the work that has been done on the power of visual communication in general, and about the social influence of television in particular, television's relationship with reality is still something of a black box. Even today, the convention that the screen functions as a window on reality structures much of the production and reception of televisual narratives. But as reality ought to become history at one point, what are we to do with such windows on the past? Developing and applying a highly innovative approach to the modern picture, "American Icons" sets out to expose the historicity of icons, to reframe the history of the screen and to dissect the visual core of a medium that is still so poorly understood. Dismantling the aura of apparently timeless icons and past spectacles with their seductive power to attract the eye, this book offers new ways of seeing the mechanisms at work in our modern pictorial culture.

First published in France as "La Semiologie en Question", this study has become a classic analysis of the value of semiotics in film analysis. a film-maker and theoretician, Mitry poses the question that if cinema is a language can it be understood thought the techniques of linguistic analysis? In effect, he interrogates semiology by representing its basic propositions and approaches, comparing them with "scientific humanist" aesthetics. Mitry's study ranges across film language, its syntax, grammar and code, signs an signification, montage, images, narrative structures, symbols and metaphors, and the rhythm of film.
