Pocket Essentials is a dynamic series of books that are concise, lively, and easy to read. Packed with facts as well as expert opinions, each book has all the key information you need to know about such popular topics as film, television, cult fiction, history, and more. This book offers a concise introduction to the appreciation and study of film. It begins with the nuts and bolts, an examination of how films are put together framing, performance, setting, costume and editing and then examines a number of approaches taken to film over the last half century, such as the auteur theory, structuralism, psychoanalysis, feminism, queer theory, and more. Applying these theories to films everyone will have seen, such as The Usual Suspects and Seven, the book also includes an overview of genres, national cinemas, and film movements worldwide.

From the Publisher:

Pocket Essentials is a dynamic series of books that are brief, lively, and easy to read. Packed with facts as well as expert opinions, each book has all the key information you need to know about such popular topics as film, television, cult fiction, history, and more. In addition to an introduction to the subject, each topic is individually analyzed and reviewed, examining its impact on culture or history. There is also a reference section that lists related web sites and weightier (and more expensive) books on the subject. For media buffs, students, and inquiring minds, these are great entry–level books that build into an essential library.
