This is the best introduction to film studies and the cinema that I have seen. It covers evrything I wanted to know about in a clear and accessible language. It is sensibly organised, and illustrated with b&w photographs. At this price, I'd recommend it to everyone with more than a passing interest in the cinema.

"one is lost in admiration of the author's skill..."
on 30 June 2000 - Published on Amazon.com
"Most beginners' guides of this sort fail miserably to fulfil (sic) their brief, being written by uncompromising ideologues who refuse to concede anything to the needs of the general reader. Buckland's pocket-sized volume represents a breakthrough: it's genuinely pitched at novices and succeeds in maintaining a perfect balance between clarity and intellectual complexity. One is lost in admiration of the author's skill at reducing the major issues and approaches to a scale exactly calibrated for undergraduate seminar discussion without the least hint of condescension in tone. The format of efficient bullet-pointing and succinct case studies can be freely cribbed from in planning lessons for years to come. (PM)" -- from Sight & Sound, a British film magazine
