Description

The Film Experience provides students with a comprehensive introduction to the formal elements of film, but unlike all other beginning film texts, it uses viewership as its starting place, anchoring the fundamentals of film analysis in film going experiences students can identify with. By using the relationship between viewers and films as a lens through which students can explore the historical, cultural, and financial issues surrounding the cinema, The Film Experience consciously allows for interpretive strategies beyond formalist analysis. As a result, the book enables students to extract a broad range of complex meanings from the films they watch. Combining these multiple approaches with a fresh, accessible writing style, The Film Experience offers a unique, innovative way to introduce students to film, giving them the technical vocabulary, cultural and historical background, and critical and analytical tools they need for serious film study.
