Senses of Cinema Senses of Cinema is primarily concerned with ideas about particular films or bodies of work, but also with the regimes (ideological, economic and so forth) under which films are produced and viewed, and with the more abstract theoretical and philosophical issues raised by film study. Senses of Cinema believe that a cinephilic understanding of the moving image provides the necessary basis for a radical critique of other media and of the global “image culture”.
