About this item

Looking at Movies, Third Edition is an accessible and visually dynamic introduction to film studies that offers more media support and a lower price than all of its competitors.

The Third Edition of Looking at Movies is as visually engaging and fun to read as previous editions, and now contains new material on film history, film genre, and cultural contexts, and even more help with film analysis.

Supplementary materials, conceived and created by the authors, integrate seamlessly with the text. Two DVDs contain nearly four hours of film clips, frame sequences, short films, and animations to show what the text describes. The Looking at Movies student website provides an abundance of review and ancillary materials, including the Writing About Movies guide.

FEATURES

Always accessible and interesting; now comprehensive, too.

Looking at Movies is a visually dynamic introduction to the elements of film form, and with the addition of new material, its a comprehensive introduction as well. The Third Edition adds in-depth (but jargon-free) coverage of three areas: film history, film genres, and the connections between film and culture.

More help with film analysis than any other text.

Every element of the Looking at Movies package features pedagogy to help students in their critical viewing and analytical writing, including model analyses, end-of-chapter materials, DVD tutorials, and the Writing About Movies guide.

The most visually dynamic text on the market.

The four-color design of Looking at Movies is easy on the eyes and fun to read. But, more importantly, it shows students what the text describes. Two DVDs (packaged with all new copies of Looking at Movies) provide nearly four hours of moving-image content.

The most useful, best-integrated media package.

The two DVDs and student website offer an abundance of pedagogically useful and visually dynamic multimedia content. Conceived, directed, hosted, edited, and narrated by coauthor and filmmaker Dave Monahan, each DVD tutorial directly relates to and complements the content in the book. The student website features multimedia quizzes, printable screening worksheets, and other review materials linked to an easy-to-use gradebook, as well as the Writing About Movies guide.
