"The Other Bible. Holy Writ for all cineastes"—Die Zeit, Vienna, 1998
Since it was first published in 1977, this classic of film literature has appeared in nine editions in six languages, and has become a standard introduction to film for a generation of readers, viewers, filmmakers, and filmgoers. The fourth edition, years in the making, has been thoroughly revised and updated, and includes a new section on the digital revolution now transforming film and media. Of course, this new edition comes complete with a DVD-ROM multimedia disc that enormously expands the experience.
In addition to the full word-searchable text of the book, the DVD includes:
• three other books authored/edited by Monaco (The Dictionary of New Media, Reading About Film, Reading About Media)
• Nearly 4 hours of movie clips!
• A thousand illustrations: stills, audios, author's notes
• Interactive filmmaking labs and demonstrations
• More than 140 texts
• Virtual Reality tours of Hollywood
• And much more!

I Also Recommend:
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.
