Review in Nordicom Review

In the latest issue of Nordicom Review (June 2023) I have published a review of Jan Olsson’s book, The Life and Afterlife of Swedish Biograph
From Commercial Circulation to Archival Practices
(2022). I was very fond of the book. Olsson knows his subject well. Swedish Biograph has been a research interest of his for more than three decades – full disclosure: twenty-five years ago, he was my supervisor. The Life and Afterlife of Swedish Biograph offers a rich exploration of both business and economics, film production practices, changes in film style, and commercial misgivings. The book is also written with exquisite prose and is a pure pleasure to read. The review is open access and can be downloaded here:
