By A Customer on 13 April 2000
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent source of basic information on practically every major film movement. Each chapter is clearly organised and sub-divided in chronological order giving basic knowledge on subjects as diverse as German Expressionism and the Hollywood musical. It is a very good text book to dip in and out of providing a good starting ground for a more in depth study for all film students.

Alongside "A Histrory Of Narrative Film" written by David A. Cook, this book represents probably the best account on film history in recent time. By the way, this is not the only one by this tremendous couple of people. Thank you Mr. Bordwell and Mrs. Thompson.

Very well documented and well informed history book about movies, that can serve as a "bible" for years to come, split into small chapters, with small, but well chosen illustrations. Academic coffee-table.
