Recent trends in film discourse are taken up and examined from a national position in Wages of Cinema: Film in Philippine Perspective. Issues such as deconstruction, historiography, cultural policy, postcolonialism, and psychoanalysis, plus reconsiderations of earlier questions on structure, genre, gender, race, autobiography, and authorship are discussed in the light of how these may best contribute to the interest of Philippine film criticism, production, and viewership.

Wages of Cinema presents a variety of film texts in the course of discussion. These include several Philippine titles such as "Manila By Night" and "Maynila: Sa mga Kuko ng Liwanag", American products such as "Nashville", "Dressed to Kill" and "Raising Cain", and the celebrated Japanese erotic sample "In the Realm of the Senses."

Joel David is an Assistant Professor of film at the University of the Philippines. He is the author of two earlier books on Philippine cinema and is working on his doctoral dissertation in cinema studies at New York University.
