'Shadow Economies of Cinema is a strong addition to the literature on contemporary industry studies. It also demonstrates an admirable graps of wide range of fields upon which cinema studies is starting to impinge. Lobato ends with a call for cinema studies "to open up a dialogue with other fields that specialise in cultural circulation from anthropology to economics."' - Screening the Past 'Shadow Economies is a valuable contribution to reimagine the experience of cinema beyond the classic focus on representation. International in its scope, and lucid in its theoretical exposition, it will find interest among academic and non academic readers.' - Senses of Cinema
