Film is an art form with a language and an aesthetic all its own, and since 1979 David Bordwell and Kristin Thompson's Film Art has been the most respected introduction to the analysis of cinema. In the new seventh edition, while continuing to provide the best introduction to the fundamentals of serious film study, the book has been extensively re-designed to improve readability and teachability. Throughout the text, images present actual film frames, rather than production stills or advertising photos. Supported by an extensive Instructor's Manual and text-specific website, Film Art can be packaged with the award-winning Film, Form, and Culture CD-ROM by Robert Kolker.
