Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A revision of the classic text which served as the foundation for contemporary modern film history courses, covering the birth of the technology to the thematic contents of director Quentin Tarantino. The text highlights international advances in film narrative, Hollywood's evolution from Griffith to the most contemporary directors, including specific discussions of German, French, and Japanese film, Soviet montage, film noir, and the technical processes of sound, color, and computer technology. Though intended as instructional text, the photographs and well written historical discussions make the volume a film buff's dream reference as well. Annotation c.
