Other Reading - “Understand Film Studies” by Warren Buckland

I chose this book as background reading. I found it a very useful introduction to film studies covering amongst other topics;
  • Aesthetics, formalism and realism
  • Structure, narrative and narration
  • Film authorship, the director as auteur
  • Genre
  • Documentary types
  • Critique and reviewing
As a result of having read this book, I have a new appreciation of the cinema and I hope that I will be able to get more from watching the films recommended for this course.
