Reviews

“Hopefully, Dr. Barrueto’s text will encourage faculty at other institutions to use both a multimedia and interdisciplinary approach to second language acquisition so that students can have more experiences using contemporary language in authentic settings.” -Dr. Cynthia Wise Staudt, Chair, Division of Languages and Letters, Walsh University

“The strengths of this book lie in its selection of films that are both classic and contemporary, its intersection of historical context and critical scholarship, and its emphasis on films that address themes of significance for understanding the complexity of Latin American culture. . . . fills a gap in scholarly editions dedicated to Latin American film and will ideally set a new standard of critical engagement for students studying Latin American cinema.” – Dr. Sophia A. McClennen, Associate Professor of Comparative Literature, Spanish, and Women’s Studies, Pennsylvania State University, University Park

“In each chapter, the author has demonstrated a wide-ranging knowledge of critical theory and a solid understanding of film theory as well.” – Dr. Elizabeth Guerrero, Associate Professor of Spanish, Bucknell University
