9780075617020: Film, Form, and Culture

From screen kisses to gender roles, this volume explores the interaction between the movies and the society of which they are a part. Students are introduced to the elements of film - the shot, the cut, the soundtrack - and they are encouraged to think seriously about the means by which these elements shape an audience's understanding of the narrative. On a larger scale, students are asked to consider how a film can influence its viewer even after the last reel has run out - and the way that societal changes radically alter the course of film history.
