Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Neupert (film studies, U. of Georgia) examines the importance that viewers grant to the final moment of a film, investigating how devices of film narration direct the viewer's perceptions through an analysis of Hollywood and art films. He divides fiction films into four categories: the closed-text film (typical of classic works); the open-story film; the open-discourse film; and the open text film which struggles to defy story resolution. B&w film stills. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
