Jump Cut: Hollywood, Politics and Counter-Cinema

No-Nonsense Guide to Global Media

Brink of Reality / Jump Cut

My book on Canadian documentary is titled Brink of Reality: New Canadian Film and Video.
(Between the Lines, 1995).

The terrific cover was designed by Jeff Jackson, of Toronto. In addition to his book work, Jeff has exhibited his paintings widely, and some of his illustrations have appeared in The New Yorker.

I also compiled a collection of essays from the film magazine "Jump Cut."
That book is titled "Jump Cut: Hollywood, Politics and Counter-Cinema"
(Between the Lines, 1984)
Here's the website for Jump Cut magazine, a fantastic source of film and media comment and criticism.

All three books can be ordered from
