Originally published in 1988, The I of the Camera has become a classic in the literature of film. This second edition includes fourteen new essays, as well as a new foreword. Offering alternatives to the viewing and criticism of film, William Rothman challenges readers to think about film in adventurous ways that are more open to our experience of movies. In explaining the American quality of American film, Rothman argues compellingly that movies have inherited the philosophical perspective of American transcendentalism.
