An 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. The film references in the text have been updated and the emphasis is on the study of whole films, not excerpts.
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.
