1.0 out of 5 stars still hasn't arrived
We are still waiting for the book to arrive and it's the 19th September. I am particularly annoyed because my son needs it for his studies.

Studying Film succeeds in its aim to provide an informative introductory text book to Film Studies. Most other books on the market are too complicated and theory based for the A Level student or undergraduate newcomer. Nor does the text book approach and format lend itself to Film Studies. But here the facts and debates are covered clearly in well-defined chapters. The book covers the basic areas needed for A Level Film: the Industry, film form and language, critical approaches, and film movements. The last category offers an excellent introduction to British and World Cinema for students and teachers alike. The films discussed are mostly the standard 'classics' of film studies, which in this case, works for the benefit of the book's introductory status. Also included are appropriate exercises to encourage the application of the Film Studies - valuable practise for beginners. This book is definitely aimed at A-Level (Film and/or Media) but I can also see its usefulness at undergraduate level, perhaps for starting a film course within another discipline. Finished off with a useful glossary, I recommend this text books to everyone studying Film Studies at A-Level or undergraduate level (and especially their teachers!).
