There are thousands of websites dedicated to serious and not-so-serious discussions of film, and even the most dedicated web-surfing individuals may grow frustrated looking for helpful sites in this particular realm of the Internet. The Senses of Cinema website is a real find, and it is "devoted to the serious and eclectic discussion of cinema". The journal itself is open to a number of different critical approaches to understanding and analyzing film. Based in Australia, and funded in part by the Australian Film Commission, the site contains reviews of films, interviews with filmmakers, film polls, and movie soundtracks. One particularly compelling section is the "Great Directors" area. Here visitors can read intelligent and intriguing profiles of well-regarded auteurs, such as Robert Altman, Anthony Mann, and Nicholas Ray. The site is rounded out by several informative essays on Australian cinema, including a lucid discussion of the representation of Australia's colonial history in film.
