Reviews

By 'real gaze' McGowan means ... Lacan's gaze is not the look of the spectator at the film but something the spectator encounters in the object seen, something that disturbs or distorts the experience of the object ... McGowan is solid on his theory. - CHOICE The style and arguments in this book are impressively clear and concise. Complex ideas are made straightforward through use of anecdote and illustration and the author unhesitatingly draws his examples from both 'art house' cinema and popular Hollywood movies. - Mikita Brottman, author of High Theory/Low Culture This book is clearly written, persuasive, and contains an insightful exposition of difficult Lacanian concepts. - Henry Krips, author of Fetish: An Erotics of Culture
