About David Walsh
David Walsh has been the Arts Editor of the World Socialist Web Site since its launch in 1998. He is the author of hundreds of critical essays on contemporary art and culture from a Marxist perspective.
Walsh has fought relentlessly against the current stagnation of art, particularly in cinema, contributing profoundly to the renaissance of a socialist understanding of aesthetics. He insists that “to become whole, human beings require the truth about the world, and about themselves, that art offers.” The film criticism in this volume is infused with this view.
