4.2 out of 5 stars

on 25 July 2013
The early part of this book (a history of film editing in the silent movies) and the main body, written by Karl Reisz, I found very interesting and informative and a good read. Unfortunately the additional material, about film movements and specific directors since the original publication, reads much more like a text-book, and whilst I've no reason to doubt its accuracy it did little to tempt me to explore films of these genres. So four to five stars for the first 2/3rds but only 2 stars for the final part.

This book provides an excellent background and overview of film editing, using a wide range of examples and film styles. Very useful as a resource tool or if you are looking for inspiration or new ideas, or even if you just want to watch films from a different perspective. Recommended!

First you have to find it. Incidentally, I am sure it is not extremely difficult to find, for I happen to have found it accidentally in a film book store in Hollywood. Needless to say this book provides any potential film maker with an exciting view of the craft, turning mechanics into art. It is written in a clear style and in an almost profound way it will change the way you understand cinema and editing. Reisz and Millar will teach you how to turn the art of film into film art.
