Film Art: An Introduction by David Bordwell

This introduction to film art explains the techniques specific to film as a medium, discusses the principles by which entire films are constructed, and explores how these techniques and formal principles have changed over the history of moviemaking.

This edition includes a new chapter dealing with types of films and the concept of genre; and there is also a new section on "The New Hollywood" and independent film-making. In addition, there is a new appendix on selected Internet reference sites in film from the World Wide Web.
