Chuck Kleinhans’ article “Marxism and Film” (1998) suggests that the comments Marx and Engels made on art and particularly on literature can be considered as a whole, even though they did not write a full-fledged aesthetic theory. Because of its comprehensiveness, Marxism provides a significantly flexible method for analysis. It combines practical, progressive, democratic political objectives with dialectical potential for change and social analysis based on historical development. Thus Marxist analysis emerges as a necessary tool (not always clearly emphasized) for such topics of film studies as contemporary gender issues, race, ethnicity, and post-colonial thought.
