Film Theory

Lola On Film is designed to deconstruct the spectacle, measure empty calories, offer nutritional insights on films newly released, as well as archival treasures (and junk), assess the state of film culture, and illuminate cinema’s place in society, as well as in our individual psychology.

In Film Theory I collect my academic texts for all my fellow film scholars & students, please feel very welcome to research, discuss, cite & link.
