Understanding movies

by Giannetti Louis D.


Designed to help movie watchers analyze films with precision and technical sophistication, this book focuses on formalism--how the forms of the film (e.g., camera work, editing, photography, etc.) create meaning. It sheds light on how television and movies communicate, and the complex network of language systems they use. Chapter topics cover recent developments from all aspects of cinema, contemporary films, personalities in the field, photography, movement, editing, sound, acting, drama, story writing, and theory. For movie critics and fans alike.
