Part of a new series, ‘Understanding Film Texts’ makes accessible the ideas and procedures of film studies. Using a variety of critical thought about film, the author’s approach is grounded in the experience of the student as a cinema-goer. The book is organized around three nonspecialist experiences of film; story, character, and spectacle. Through these, an introduction is offered to film specific studies. Each chapter makes detailed references to two films. Films studied include E.T., A Chinese Ghost Story, Once were Warriors, Romeo and Juliet, Sliding Doors, and Secrets and Lies. The author examines specific sequences in order to develop an introductory-level understanding and appreciation of key elements of film form, such as mise-en-scène and editing.
