Anatomy of Film provides a solid foundation of film fundamentals while offering rich examples from the past and present. Designed to be used in film-as-literature or introduction to film courses in English, film, or communication departments, Anatomy of Film covers all of the essential elements of film — from genre, lighting, and editing to music, sound, and narration — and its student-friendly approach makes it ideal for those new to the discipline. Along with a strong focus on genre, this text also features a chapter devoted to the connection between film and literature. Ultimately, this comprehensive text demonstrates a genuine enthusiasm for the medium while exploring both the humanistic and analytical aspects of film criticism.
