With the number of reviews and essays published on Deep Focus Review, a small library of resources are used. The texts include film histories, film theory in books and journals, and biographical texts. The resources also include a few online articles, disc extras, and other media. I have compiled a list of the most commonly used and referenced sources below.

If you have any questions regarding the bibliography, feel free to email me.
