'I so enjoyed reading this book! Its arguments about surrealism and film are lucid and persuasive and presented with compelling clarity. I couldn't put it down.'Mary Ann Caws, author of Surrealism: themes and movements and Surrealist Painters and Poets: an anthology'There is nothing that would compel one to not recommend this intelligent and fiercely radical study of Surrealism and cinema, which ranges further in its scope, is more up-to-date, and is more thorough in its investigation than any other.'Manticore: Surrealist Communication'Richardson begins where most other commentators leave off.'Leonardo'This expansive study contributes to maintaining a notion of what surrealism within cinema might be without restricting it to a set of rules or conditions.'Screening the Past
