Feminist film theorists have been exploring the issue of the male gaze and its various nuances and implications for decades. The term "male gaze" was first used in 1975 by Laura Mulvey\. Nina Menkes builds on the vital work of Mulvey and other essential feminist writers, bringing her own perspective as a working director and cinematographer. Using almost 200 film clips from A-list and other notable movies, from 1896 through the present, Menkes exposes specifically how shot design itself has.
