French film theorist and critic, Christian Metz (1931-­‐1993) is well-­‐known for his “apparatus” theory, which he developed in the 1970s. His works, in English translation, had a major impact on international film theory: Language and Cinema (1971), Film Language: A Semiotics of Cinema (1974), and The Imaginary Signifier: Psychoanalysis and the Cinema (1977).
