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.

{GoogleBook}

“….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.
