How to Read a Film 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Great for both beginners in film studies and anyone who wants to get a good overlook at the history, theory, and criticism of film. It's written very clearly, so it's not confusing or scattered at all. Each chapter tackles a different field in film, and seems long, but there are lots of pictures in between.
