. Screen Existing critical traditions fail to fully account for the impact of Austrian director, and 2009 Cannes Palm dOr winner, Michael Hanekes films, situated as they are between intellectual projects and popular entertainments. In this first English-language introduction to, and critical analysis of, his work, each of Hanekes eight feature films are considered in detail. Particular attention is given to what the author terms Michael Hanekes ethical cinema and the unique impact of these films upon their audiences.Drawing on the moral philosophy of Immanuel Kant and Stanley Cavell, Catherine Wheatley, introduces a new way of marrying film and moral philosophy, which explicitly examines the ethics of the film viewing experience.

Hanekes films offer the viewer great freedom whilst simultaneously imposing a considerable burden of responsibility. How Haneke achieves this break with more conventional spectatorship models, and what its far-reaching implications are for film theory in general, constitute the principal subject of this book.Catherine Wheatley holds degrees from the universities of Bath and Oxford, and is currently a researcher at the University of Southampton.

She is a regular contributor to Sight & Sound magazine, as well as having published articles in several journals and books.
