Categories and Conversations

(p.111) Conclusion
Classical Hollywood Cinema

James Zborowski

Manchester University Press

The conclusion defends the methodology adopted by the book – in particular, its abstention from the proposal of a taxonomy of point of view (a very common feature of scholarly work on this topic), and its utilisation of close and, it is suggested, ‘conversational’ engagement with specific films. It argues that such a method should be accepted as one mode of ‘theorising’, and that it is a method that has the virtue of granting a valuable degree of autonomy to the artworks and the readers it encounters.
