Film is an art form with a language and an aesthetic all its own. Since 1979, David Bordwell's and Kristin Thompson's "Film Art" has been the most respected introduction to the analysis of cinema. While continuing to provide the best introduction to the fundamentals of serious film study, the eighth edition has been extensively re-designed in full color greatly enhancing the text's visual appeal and overall accessibility to today's students. Throughout the text, all images presented are frame enlargements as opposed to production stills or advertising photos. Supported by a text-specific CD-ROM with video clips, an Instructor's Manual, and text-specific website, Film Art can also be packaged with the award-winning Film, Form, and Culture CD-ROM.

If you are not into the nuances of making a film or even understanding how to review a film, this is a great first step. It breaks down the film into its parts and once you are done, you will actually look at movies in a new and exciting way. The companion CD is good, if film making is in your future, but wasn't necessary for a group of fiction writers. Even if you are not in a film class and just want to understand the making of films, this is a good reference.
This classic study was first published in France as La Semiologie en Question. A filmmaker and theoretician, Mitry asks if cinema is a language, can it be understood through the techniques of linguistic analysis? In effect, he interrogates semiology by representing its basic propositions and approaches, comparing them with scientific humanist aesthetics. Mitry's study ranges across film language, its syntax, grammar, and code; signs and signification; montage; images; narrative structures; symbols and metaphors; and the rhythm of film.
