. . . magnificently ambitious . . . some of the most original and intelligent essays in film theory today. --Journal of Modern Literature

. . . deeply commited to the psychoanalytic approach . . . --Contemporary Sociology

The Desire to Desire traces the way in which female spectatorship is specified primarily by its lapses or failures, arguing that the women's film simultaneously asserts and denies female desire, attributing to the woman only an impossible gaze.
