About the Author

Bob Moss is a graduate of Northwestern University (Ph.B., 1966) and I.I.T. Chicago Kent College of Law (J.D., 1973). Following a career as a social worker, lawyer, and state district judge, Bob retired and began studying about film—his passion. Bob is a member of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Northwestern University in Chicago. Over the past several years, he has coordinated several film-study groups at OLLI on topics such as The Art of Watching Films, Scene by Scene, which features directors and actors discussing their famous scenes, and The Story of Film. In addition, Bob leads a number of biweekly movie-discussion groups in which the members analyze current feature films and conducts monthly post-screening discussions at his favorite “art” movie theatre in Chicago. This book came about due to the positive response Bob received from the discussion group members who learned how to use the film-analysis technique to which he had guided them.
