Product Description


'What is a film moment? This is a book that answers this question in a series of vivid, inspirational fragments. A stellar cast of contributors and a riveting set of examples help confirm that this is indeed a book whose own moment has well and truly come.'
Alastair Phillips, University of Warwick

'Certain moments in films stay with us, and often we don't know why. Here is an array of such memorable moments, with an array of notable critics and scholars endeavoring to tell us why. Concise like the moments that inspired them, the essays gathered here open our eyes in various ways to the meaning of moving images. This is a book full of insights into the details that make all the difference.'
Gilberto Perez, Sarah Lawrence College, New York
'...a terrific collection of short essays which each address a specific sequence in a movie...' - Illuminations

Book Description

Film Moments brings together specially commissioned essays by leading international scholars to provide a close analysis of key films of world cinema, including The Wizard of Oz, 8 1/2 and Magnolia
