Three brand new books are heading our way from the BFI, as a trio of movies get the BFI Classics treatment – more information here.

The terrific BFI Film Classics series of books extends further at the end of this month, with the release of three more titles in the series. The series, if you’ve not encountered them before – in the BFI’s own words – “introduces, interprets and celebrates landmarks of world cinema”, including an argument within each that the film in question is indeed a classic.

The three new titles, then. Rebecca Harrison has written the BFI Classic book on The Empire Strikes Back, the 1960 movie The Cloud-Capped Star has been examined by Manishita Dass, whilst Stacy Abbot has tackled Near Dark.

All three books go on sale from October 29th.

You can order The Empire Strikes Back here.

Near Dark here.

And The Cloud-Capped Star here.

Over 50 titles in the series are now available. I’m just brushing up my pitch for a BFI Classics book on Con Air right now…
