Good overview, well-written. Analysis of films, many of them well-known to anyone interested in film, but also with a few "Haven't seen this, but now I'd like to check it out". Ample illustrations. For those who want to go more in-depth, there are references to blog entries. It's a textbook, not literature, but for what it is, it's very good. ( )

"Film is an art form with a language and an aesthetic all its own. Since 1979, David Bordwell's and Kristin Thompson's Film Art has been the best-selling and widely respected introduction to the analysis of cinema. While it continues to provide the best introduction to the fundamentals of serious film study, the eighth edition has been revised be more classroom friendly by introducing film techniques earlier in the text, followed by the chapters on Film Genres. Supported by a text-specific Tutorial CD-ROM with video clips, Film Art is automatically packaged with this outstanding student learning tool"

Have you ever wanted a very concise introduction to film, as a whole? Well, congratulations, you and I have something in common. What you may not have in common with me, though, is ownership of a book entitled "Film Art: An Introduction." My copy is the seventh edition. It was published in 2003. Since then, a lot of great films have come out, and even if there's an eighth, ninth, or tenth edition, it will still be behind the times with respect to recent films. But after reading this book (in whatever recent edition you may procure) and the included Film Viewers Guide (also by Bordwell. See my library for more info), you will be ready to handle the onslaught of new films, and be able to explain to your friends, hopefully in terms they understand, what redeeming qualities that film had (you MUST start using the word "film" to describe what you once called a "movie." I mean, do you call them "talkies" or "colors"? Why still use "movie", unless you're used to just watching La Jetee?)

This book gives an overview of film in its entirety, covering things like the development of the film camera (at least, nontechnical aspects of it that non-engineers and optics people can understand), the film projector, as well as the film development process, pre-production, production, post-production, etc.

You will be amazed at how much stuff there is to know about films, unless you've read this book already, then you know what I mean, right!?

This book, while not meant for casual lazy day lap reading (it's a wobbly sort of book that sits better on a desk and is read best one chapter at a time over a longer time than most books), is a dense work that will leave you spotting more and more things in films, annoying your friends and family more and more as they watch films with you. You'll find your taste in films changing, and since you've alienated all your friends and family, you'll find yourself at art house theaters (though they may call themselves "theatres"), watching movies by yourself, with all the other people there who too have alienated themselves from their friends and family. You could try to make friends with them, but they're just as annoying as you.

Be warned, though, that if you are going to read this book, you may want to see the major films they discuss (at least Citizen Kane) BEFORE reading it, as it's one big spoiler for every film ever (not really, but it goes under the assumption that if you're reading it, you've either seen the films, or really don't care for the surprise ending in which you find out that Rosebud was actually a mystical dragon that Charles Foster Kane used to hang out with along the beachfront in his boyhood days, or whatever it was that Rosebud actually was).

Nevertheless, if you're like me (and if you've gotten this far, you at least LIKE me, or my review, which is a part of me, as I wrote it), you have this voracious appetite for film and books (and some music, but not as much), then this book ABOUT film will be of great interest to you.

If you hate film, or hate reading (then goodness, why are you reading a BOOK review?), then you may want to avoid this book, as it's a lot of work, and will just make you more annoying. ( )
