Back from vac with Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

Back from its screen-free holidays to one of its favourite places (the very gorgeous Andalucía, in case you were wondering), a rested and refreshed Film Studies For Free today brings you some links to high-quality, film studies-related, book reviews from that very worthy e-organ Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews. Do please scroll down for those.

There are plenty more Openly Accessible film-studies delights coming up in the next days and weeks, so do please come back to this blog soon, but thanks for the toneladas of email correspondence in FSFF's absence. Free (and legal) films online and Victor Perkins are as deservedly popular as ever, FSFF is happy to note.

Oh... and those early to middle adopters among you might like to know that this (always later to the party) blog has succumbed to the delights of Twitter - partly in order to be able to follow David Hudson's brillant new film-on-the-web updates for The Auteurs Daily.
