>From my experience this is an accurate take. I went to graduate school at
NYU in the 1970s working on an M.A. in Cinema Studies. What I experienced
was the actual movies being used as grist for the theoretical mills. The
kind of political film criticism that was clear, jargon free and useful to
me were pieces like Brecht's review of "Gunga Din" (1939) (reprinted in
Brecht on Theater.)
