Engaging Film is a creative, interdisciplinary volume that explores the engagements among film, space, and identity and features a section on the use of films in the classroom as a critical pedagogical tool. Focusing on anti-essentialist themes in films and film production, this book examines how social and spatial identities are produced (or dissolved) in films and how mobility is used to create different experiences of time and space. From popular movies such as "Pulp Fiction," "Bulworth," "Terminator 2," and "The Crying Game" to home movies and avant-garde films, the analyses and teaching methods in this collection will engage students and researchers in film and media studies, cultural geography, social theory, and cultural studies.

This is a remarkable book. It is a very readable volume of essays that substantiates the importance of film study in geography and geographic study of film. * Annals of the Association of American Geographers * Singularly smart, these essays excavate the dense spatialities-both fixed and destabilized-at work in the moving image. Cresswell and Dixon have compiled what is surely a landmark volume in cultural geography. -- John Paul Jones III, University of Kentucky
