Book summary

Appropriate for courses in Introduction to Film, Film and Drama, and Film and Literature. Understanding Movies is designed to help Canadian students analyze movies with precision and technical sophistication. Its focus is on formalism-how the forms of the film (e.g., camera work, editing, photography, etc.) create meaning in a film. The second Canadian edition updates each chapter with Canadian films and personalities familiar to Canadian students. [via]
