Film Art Summary


Film Art: An Introduction by David Bordwell

Film is an art form with a language and an aesthetic all its own, and since 1979 David Bordwell and Kristin Thompson's "Film Art" has been a respected introduction to the art and analysis of cinema. In this sixth edition, "Film Art" continues its commitment to providing the best introduction to the fundamentals of serious film study - images throughout the book are collected from actual film frames, not from production stills or advertising photos - but the book has been extensively re-designed to improve readability and teachability. Additionally, the text is now supported by the "Film, Form, and Culture" CD-ROM, as well as an extensive instructors' manual and text-specific website. The film references in the text have been completely updated and the emphasis is on the study of whole films, not excerpts.
