The second edition of this accessible book continues to examine how we can extract a broad range of meanings from the films we watch. With an improved structure, better pedagogy and more examples from popular film, this new edition continues to give students of film the vocabulary, context and critical tools they need for serious film study.

'Rather than the often dry or unwelcoming books on the history of cinema which occasionally appear to daunt the budding film scholar, this book recognises that not everyone goes to watch French arthouse films in darkened cinemas with just a handful of others...With chapters covering editing, sound, genre, critical theories and how to write a film essay, this is a fantastic starting point for anyone who perhaps wants to take their love of film a step further to take a course on the subject or even become a critic.' - Jonathan Melville, Edinburgh Evening News
