The most comprehensive and accessible text of its kind

Film: An Introduction covers the movies students know and the films their instructors want them to know — including the silent classics of D.W. Griffith and Sergei Eisenstein, the Hong Kong cinema of John Woo, the documentaries of Errol Morris and Michael Moore, and the contemporary films of Quentin Tarantino and Peter Jackson. Through meticulous coverage, an unmatched art program with over 500 frame enlargements, accessible language, and unique study tools, Film helps beginning students develop the critical skills they need to analyze films and understand the medium in all its variety.
"I like the fact that the text addresses genres such as hybrid and documentary films, genres that are growing in both numbers of films produced and in general popular audience appeal."
— Daniel J. Fitzstephens, University of Colorado – Boulder
