About this title

Synopsis:

Movie lovers from school-age to seniors will enjoy the favorite classics, pop flicks, and lesser-known gems discussed in this lively introduction to film, which also details how different techniques have been used throughout cinematic history—and how modern filmmakers are adapting those traditions today. Avoiding technical jargon, the author clearly explains key aspects of film: shots, scenes, sounds, cuts, styles, setting, mood, and meaning. Covered are classic, popular, foreign, and independent films—most of which are available at local video stores. Filled with fascinating comparisons of movies and evocative still shots, this large volume will stimulate readers to watch movies with a new sense of understanding and enjoyment.

From the Publisher:

In darkened theaters around the world, audiences laugh, gasp, and tremble together in record numbers. Most do not consider the months and years spent crafting the images on the screen. Still fewer interpret film's themes, symbols, and nuances. There can be no doubt that we enjoy movies, but do we get the picture? Author and film professor Jim Piper enlightens movie watchers with his spirited and engaging Get the Picture? The Movie Lover's Guide to Watching Films.
