9780393979831: Film Analysis: A Norton Reader

Film Analysis: A Norton Reader offers concise analyses―each written exclusively for this text by a leading scholar―of forty-four diverse, historically significant films.

Written with undergraduate readers in mind, these essays cover the central issues raised in today’s cinema courses and provide students with practical models to help them improve their own writing and film-analysis skills. Film Analysis also includes a helpful introduction and an extensive glossary. Already half the price of competing texts when purchased alone, Film Analysis can be packaged at 50 percent off with either A History of Narrative Film or Looking at Movies.

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, Winter 2007.
