richard barsam & dave monahan. norton & company new york, london. The first three chapters of the book-Looking at Movies, Principles of Film Form, and Types of Movies-provide a comprehensive yet truly introductory overview of the major topics and themes of any film course, giving students a solid grounding in the basics before they move on to study those topics in greater depth in later chapters.

Shaped by Richard Barsam's more than twenty years of classroom e. .And of course, Barsam's book (like most others) is copiously illustrated, with helpful captions (and the layout and design is better in Barsam's than in most other texts of this sort). Secondly, Barsam now pays almost no attention at all to film theory and theorists, even in the film history chapter (Giannetti, by contrast, has an entire chapter on theory, while other authors cover theory piecemeal throughout their respective texts).

Supplementary materials, conceived and created by the authors, integrate seamlessly with the text.

As mentioned in the title, this book is intended to serve as an introduction to film and film analysis for individuals who may not be very familiar with the subject matter. I am a film enthusiast and have been studying different topics in film for years. However, despite it’s purpose as an introduction, I learned more about film from this book than I have from others within the same genre. Looking at Movies compacts an incredible amount of insightful information about the movie making process and film interpretation into a single book. It serves, both, as a valuable introduction for newcomers, as well as a knowledge booster for people who simply enjoy learning more about movies. The book is structured like a textbook, and benefits from this because it covers a large span of topics in thorough detail and offers a useful glossary of terms that owners can use as a reference at their own leisure. It is also where my only negative with the book comes from. Due to the textbook style, the book suffers slightly from not offering a more down-to-earth and personal tone that many other books about film include.

I appreciate that the DVD came with it. I haven't been able to use that myself yet, but my film teacher has his own copy and shows us bits from it once in awhile. From that, the DVD is good.

The book is good, too. Lots of interesting pictures, and great information. Sitting and reading through an entire chapter in one sitting can be tedious, but the subject matter and how it's presented is interesting enough to keep me at it (Which is good, since I HAVE to do so for college).

There *IS* a 5th edition out, but my teacher said this one will do just fine... Just make sure to check with your professor on that first, as yours may require the 5th edition.

Film is a topic that contains a plethora of content to explore. From breaking down techniques to classifying genres, it could be a hassle to find out where to start. Thankfully, ‘Looking at Film: an introduction to film (Third Edition)’ is a handy textbook that tackles these concepts.
The first two chapters of the book looks at film on a base level such as what to look for in film when watching it on a critical level and the principles of film form, or how film is expressed. The later chapters go into more detailed topics such as genre, cinematography, lighting, mise - en - scene ( French for putting up the scene), and acting. The book also offers examples from other movies to illustrate what the meaning of the terms used are. An example of this is in the first chapter when it brings up the scene in ‘Juno’ where the main protagonist describes a character’s lust for “freaky girls” as this is shown with a woman standing like a doll with different clothes in different shots back to back. The book states that this scene is un realistic compared to the other scenes in the film.
If your into films and want to learn more about them, then this your first step into getting a clearer “picture” of the topic.

This is a very good introduction to the analysis of film. I enjoyed this book, and read it multiple times. I'm keeping this as a reference. Make sure you know how to use your library card (or get one) to rent the movies mentioned in this book. It does have still pictures of the movies it is referencing for those examples, but if you could get the same effect from still pictures, they wouldn't have put out the expense to make them move. Seeing the actual films really does help. I would highly recommend this book.

Ordered this book for my film class and it came un-opened and in great condition! Lots of interesting stuff in this book including lots and lots of pictures!! Great book! I love it!

I learned a ton from this

gently used so far havent found any missing pages. Needed this for a college class and it seems as if it will work well. can't say that I love it but it was as described when I purchased it so I'm giving it a 5 star because it stated slightly used.
Nearly finished with my class on American Cinema and I've found this book to be very useful. Before you're halfway through you will find yourself looking at movies differently. Not only is it informative but it makes the subject matter interesting. If you buy used, make sure you get one that comes with the DVD's; they are necessary. Film is a visual media and the DVD's show you what the book tells you.
