display_description This best-selling text is a succinct guide to thinking critically and writing precisely about film. Both an introduction to film study and a practical writing guide, this brief text introduces students to major film theories as well as film terminology, enabling them to write more thoughtfully and critically. With numerous student and professional examples, this engaging and practical guide progresses from taking notes and writing first drafts to creating polished essays and comprehensive research projects. Moving from movie reviews to theoretical and critical essays, the text demonstrates how an analysis of a film can become more subtle and rigorous as part of a compositional process. Concise explorations of the most important approaches to film analysis and writing about film, including auteurs, genres, ideology, kinds of formalism, and national cinemas, give students a quick course in the fundamentals for film theory. A range of film terms and topics, including mise-en-scene, point-of-view, composition, realism, and so on, are introduced, so students understand and use correct terminology. Each chapter concludes with short writing exercises that help students view, evaluate, and write about film more critically. Guidance on working with electronic sources helps students understand the limitations and pitfalls of electronic research. A comprehensive Glossary allows students to accurately describe their observations of the details of film practice. A wealth of images features captions with pedagogical directions. - Publisher.
