9780393923247: Film Analysis: A Norton Reader (Second Edition)

Fifty essays on fifty films―by a who’s-who of film studies.

Film Analysis offers concise analyses of fifty diverse and historically significant films―each written exclusively for the text by a leading scholar. Written with the undergraduate in mind, the essays are clear, readable, and great models for students to follow in helping them to hone their own writing. The Second Edition includes six new essays, a new, detailed guide to writing film analysis, and an extensive, up-to-date glossary of critical film terms.

Review:

I have just read, slowly and with great pleasure, straight through and in sequence, the Norton reader on film analysis, and this is a report on the experience. ... the great theme of the book, it seems to me when I try to see it all together, is not the quest for meaning or the avoidance of essentialism ... It is what we might think of as an unsettled theory, the question of what is real in a film, what is ordinary, what 'escape' means, and what work our fantasies are doing in the cinema. -- Michael Wood, Film Quarterly (review of first edition)
