Film: A Critical Introduction provides a comprehensive framework for studying films, with an emphasis on writing as a means of exploring film’s aesthetic and cultural significance. This text’s consistent and comprehensive focus on writing allows students to master film vocabulary and concepts while learning to formulate rich interpretations. Part I introduces readers to the importance of film analysis, offering helpful strategies for discerning the way films produce meaning. Part II examines the fundamental elements of film, including narrative form, mise en scène, cinematography, editing, and sound, and shows how these concepts can be used to interpret films. Part III moves beyond textual analysis to explore film as a cultural institution and introduce students to essential areas of film studies research.

This is an interesting review for me to write because I originally bought this book for a university course that required it, but am now reading it on my own.

It's a fascinating book that breaks down the different departments of film production in very easy-to-understand ways. There are plenty of pictures and, as evidenced by the cover art, screenshots and quotes from the relatively recent films (Hint: That's Clive Owen in "Inside Man" on the cover, an excellent heist film. If you haven't had the pleasure of viewing it, I suggest you make time.)

The book goes into great detail of a thousand different parts of cinema, such as mis en scene, editing and the sociology of cinema.

What really makes this book accessible to me (I was taking this class as an elective, not as part of a major or minor) was that it breaks each new concept down and uses popular films to illustrate the point. When talking about a certain lighting angle the book may cite "Good Night and Good Luck" and show pictures to hammer home the lighting idea.

All in all, a fantastic read. Enough information for a seasoned theater-lover to enjoy, and enough illustration and pop-culture references to keep the beginner engaged as well.

5 stars.
Pretty basic, but well done. A good starting place for someone looking to move into the world of film critique.
I used it just about every week for my college class. It is a very good book, with great explanations.
This is a really great book, it has the right amount of analysis and history as well as information about the more technological side of time. The classic and modern movie references and pictures are great
Film: A Critical Introduction is a wonderfully simple and detailed introduction to the world of cinema. All aspects of film are wonderfully presented with a large array of colorful pictures. The book is structured in an easy to follow, logical fashion. A must have for any neophyte cinephile.
Had to get this for a class and renting was much cheaper then buying. As far as college course books go it's not as dry and boring as many are and keeps your interest. Format is set up well and is easily understood and very acceptable. It's nice because it's not too big or heavy. My husband needed this for his class and although he's only a couple of chapters in it's been a nice text book so far.
This textbook is the best one I have ever used. It is so interesting and easy to read, I have even read it in my free time just for fun.
I found this book to be very interesting and very helpful in the class that I am taking. In Good Condition.
