What are some good books of Marxist film criticism?

I've already read this: http://www.amazon.com/Understanding-Film-Perspectives-Mike-Wayne/dp/0745319920

If there are other good books of film criticism from other perspectives, say a feminist one, I'd be interested in those too!

Thank you in advance for your recommendations!

It's mainly about pictures / paintings but it's quite interesting - Ways of Seeing, John Berger

Not books but articles, not marxist but situationist:

or situationist-inspired:

I know this guy had some anarchist tv programme reviews on his blog.

Richard Winnington's 'Film Criticism and Caricatures 1943-53', Paul Elek London, 1975. Pick it up second hand, it's dated though I found it interesting. Winnington died in 1953.
