Publisher Review

'She Found it at the Movies collapses the space between screen and body and foregrounds the reality of our very complex and always present bodies. While that space has long been dominated by so-called objectivity and clinical analysis, this collection dives into uncharted waters to explore, creating space for discussing desire instead of repressing it.' --KIVA REARDON (Editor in Chief of Cleo Film Journal and film programmer at the Toronto International Film Festival) 'At its best, a book of fiercely original writing and thinking, not only about cinema, but about ourselves.' --MARK COUSINS (Writer and filmmaker) 'She Found it at the Movies gives film criticism the vitamin-boost it needed, a female gaze bringing eroticism, sensuality and a new subversive intimacy to the critical act; the book celebrates not just desire but pleasure. Each of these essays is a seduction, leading you astray to the great seduction of the movies themselves.' --PETER BRADSHAW, Film Critic at The Guardian
