John Atkinson is the UK-based publishing director of Auteur.
Splice bridges the gap between contemporary cinema and intelligent discourse. Facilitating the study of contemporary cinema, it offers a practical solution for teachers and students of film studies, media studies, and related disciplines.
This edition follows the "best films you didn't see," showing how a variety of underviewed gems can be used in the classroom and beyond. Films featured include the Colin Farrell vehicle In Bruges (2008), the remake of the Western classic 3:10 to Yuma (2007), the almost forgotten, dark British comedy Funny Bones (1995), and Josie and the Pussycats (2001). Each is considered for its contribution to film study debate.
