Useful for introducing students to the process of critically thinking about film. Fairly wide range of films covered, fairly broad assumptions as well... As long as you can communicate the limited nature of the available analysis in this book, it works reasonably well.

I had to read this for one of my film classes this last quarter. It was really interesting to learn more about film techniques and how to analyze film. It was a lot of help for the class!
