Film Art, which really does get better from one edition to the next, is nevertheless readable and useful in every edition. If you live in a university town with film courses and with 2nd hand bookstores, you'll likely find editions from the first to this one on sale at one point or another. Bordwell wrote the definitive text on Narrative in Film as well. Film Art, lavishly and intelligently illustrated, takes you through all the aspects of film making, from the basic to the profound. I've picked up both the 2nd and 7th editions and the improvement in the 7th is remarkable. Not always the case with books primarily used as texts in courses. Many of the points made in the text are illustrated, as well they should be in a book about film art. Use some film, heck, yeah. This is a text, though. It's not the easyglide reading of a popular book on film. It's meant to impart a thorough understanding of film from camera angles to plotting.
