    A comprehensive, detailed introductory read about films (even if it's 220 pages long), that not only explains visual and narrative techniques that are key ingredients in making a movie, like mise-en-scène, mise-en-shot, restricted narration, omniscient narration etc. - while the author explains among others, what elements should a well written review consist of - but on each chapter we find (and especially at the end of the book) further complex and rich advanced readings about films (books writ A comprehensive, detailed introductory read about films (even if it's 220 pages long), that not only explains visual and narrative techniques that are key ingredients in making a movie, like mise-en-scène, mise-en-shot, restricted narration, omniscient narration etc. - while the author explains among others, what elements should a well written review consist of - but on each chapter we find (and especially at the end of the book) further complex and rich advanced readings about films (books written by André Bazin for example). We also discover sites that would enrich our understanding of how a film comes to form, from the direction, script and so on - while it's really important to judge a film as part of its specific genre too (french new wave, new hollywood, italian neorealism, german expressionism etc.), apart of just judging it by general and standard understandings on the "I like it/I didn't like it", "It was good/it was bad" opinion or that if it makes you soft, it must be a great film too...practically it may be the case, theoretically...not always.

    هناك قدر من الإفادة الحاصلة عموما. ولكنّ أهمّ ما يقدمه الكتاب هو البيبليوغرافيا الثمينة والخصبة. من المهمّ على قارئ الكتاب أن يشاهد أهم الأفلام التي يأخذها نماذجا. وأخص بالذكر سايكو Psycho لهيتشكوك حيث يعود له في أكثر من مناسبة.

    الكتاب مفيد جداً للهواة أو المتخصصين، وهو يغوص بعمق داخل كل فيلم مدروس -فهو يختار بعض الأفلام البارزة كنماذج تطبيقية- ويعطي خبرة للقارئ في الأفلام القديمة أو الجديدة قدر الإمكان، ويتنوع بين الجوانب التقنية وتلك النقدية والخاضعة للذوق، مع الاهتمام بالجانب التاريخي. ومن المهم أنه يحتوي على فهرس بالأفلام الواردة في النص، بالعربية والإنكليزية ولكن كنت أتمنى وجود تاريخ الإنتاج في الفهرس لتسهيل العودة إليه.

    Sinemayı anlamanın temellerini oldukça kolay bir dille ve pek çok örnek üzerinden veren Buckland'ın kitabı, bu konuyla ilk defa tanışanların dahi keyifle okuyacağı bir kaynak. Bir başka artısı ise, her bölümün sonundaki okuma listeleri. Böylece daha derine inmek isteyenler için de yol haritası sunmuş. Sinemaya eleştirel bakış için iyi bir başlangıç kitabı.

I didn't really get the "artistic" divide but that is because as this book classifies me as a formalist (if I remember correctly) and want to see the script more so then I want to see a work of art whose medium is a movie. the bit on how to write reviews was pretty good. my only complaint is that is for ppl looking to sell those reviews for a living. if I recommend something it is because I want you to see/read it and thus discover the plot for yourself, I don't need to spell it out for you.

    I've finally admitted to myself that filmmaking has a substantial influence on my artwork, so I have begun the process of learning the ins and outs of the medium. This book was a great introduction to the industry, which was exactly what I was looking for. I appreciated the full range of coverage Buckland gave on the industry: it was primarily a focus on American and European films (not mentioning the Asian film industry), but he certainly gave a healthy survey of the two continents' film history I've finally admitted to myself that filmmaking has a substantial influence on my artwork, so I have begun the process of learning the ins and outs of the medium.

I appreciated the full range of coverage Buckland gave on the industry: it was primarily a focus on American and European films (not mentioning the Asian film industry), but he certainly gave a healthy survey of the two continents' film history. While I'd say that my knowledge (not so much experience) of the film industry has a fair amount of breadth to it, I certainly learned a lot and created a growing list of films and directors I need to investigate. I absolutely poured through the chapter on film genre. For some reason, learning about genre conventions has always fascinated me; I think I just enjoy the prospect of learning from other stories within a genre as I develop my own take on it. Admittedly, the book felt very much like a textbook (which, obviously, is exactly what it is), so there was much repetition and sections that were simply dull to me. But I for the most part enjoyed learning of industry terms and history. For anyone looking to start the process of learning about film studies, this is a fantastic place to start. Don't expect much else from it, but I don't know why anyone would.

    A very informative and well-written book on film studies for beginners. It covers a different subject in each chapter followed by references allowing readers to further pursue whichever film subject they find interesting, and while certainly not all the information would be new for a reader with a long interest in film, and the educational style adopted by the writer (re-iterating certain points several times, summarising main points at the end of each chapter) might not appeal to everyone, it i A very informative and well-written book on film studies for beginners.

The book starts with a discussion about the importance of film studies, then explains film elements and aesthetics (realism vs formalism), followed by film structure (narrative and narration). It then moves on to discuss the theory of auteurism, the concept of film genres, followed by a chapter on documentary film and its different types and finishes with the art of film reviewing, providing good examples in each chapter. I particulary found the extensive list of references for further reading after each chapter quite useful as well as the websites on critical scholarly analysis of film theories and philosophies. A much recommended book for beginners.

    Better than average introduction into film that covers significant ground, such as formalism and realism, narrative and narration, the director as auteur, genre films, documentaries and reviewing film. Buckland sometimes strays slightly off topic, but that's certainly forgivable. In a book this short, Buckland doesn't have time to go into any in-depth discussions, but he does provide a wealth of other resources (print and web) for those looking for more info. Recommended.

    This is an excellent introduction to how films work, from their narrative structure to set design and shot direction. It is probably best read alongside the works that it uses for examples, which include classics like North by Northwest, Breathless, and Mulholland Dr. Probably the perfect book for anyone who likes movies and wants to begin looking at them more critically, even if just to increase their own enjoyment.

    This is an excellent resource - a college coruse in a book. Any teacher who will be teaching the new Literature and Film class would benefit from reading this book, but it's a bit too advanced for a high school student.
