An introduction to film, written by film professor and enthusiast Jim Piper. It offers explanations of how different techniques and styles have been used throughout cinematic history to tell a story and how modern filmmakers are adapting those traditions today. Steering clear of technical jargon and arcane theoretical arguments, the author seeks to help readers understand key concepts about film, including details on shots, scenes, sounds, cuts, styles, drama, setting, mood and meaning. He discusses why so many Hollywood films are unsatisfying, why foreign films and classic films are difficult to watch, what is the connection between violence in the media and violence in society, and what is wrong with film studies today. A broad range of classic, popular, foreign and independent films is covered - from The Great Train Robbery to Texas Chainsaw Massacre, from High Noon to Dead Man Walking, and from Raise the Red Lantern to Any Given Sunday. There are side-by-side comparisons and black-and-white illustrations.An introduction to film, written by film professor and enthusiast Jim Piper.
