Film is an art form with a language and an aesthetic all its own. Since 1979, David Bordwell's and Kristin Thompson's "Film Art" has been the best-selling and widely respected introduction to the analysis of cinema. While it continues to provide the best introduction to the fundamentals of serious film study, the eighth edition has been revised be more classroom friendly by introducing film techniques earlier in the text, followed by the chapters on Film Genres. Supported by a text-specific Tutorial CD-ROM with video clips, "Film Art" is automatically packaged with this outstanding student learning tool.
