Film book: How to Read a Film by James Monaco

How to Read a film: the World of Movies, Media, and Multimedia Art, Technology, Language, History, Theory by  James Monaco

First published 1977.

3rd. edition, 2000.


“….The one work on the subject one ought to buy as the nucleus of a library.” says the backpage. An uninterrupted first 65 pages of over 650, to make up you mind if this might be true. Looks pretty good to me.
