Understanding Movies by Gianetti is a hugely readable and lively basic text 
book.

Subject: [FILM-PHILOSOPHY] Advise for an amateur please!


Excuse me, I'm not on the elevated level of some of the eminent members 
here. But a question please. I am an avid filmgoer as are the other members 
of my family, and have seen a great many of the classics old and new (I live 
near to a cinema museum). I have been trying to delve a bit deeper into the 
art of film, so started off with film studies, a kind of film theory made 
simple that wasn't that bad. Then my daughter bought my volume 1 of 
Deleuze's book which offered me a few gems here and there but was bit too 
much to take in at this stage of the game. I bought Reading the film by 
James Monaco, which I am enjoying immensely, very much my level. I bought 
Encyclopaedia by Katz expecting it to be a Monaco-style book bought on a 
blow-by-blow basis but it turns out to be focused on individual actors 
rather than the mechanics or theory of filmmaking. So could anybody point me 
in the right direction please? What I would like at this stage would be a 
film-by-film account of films: type of shots, point of view omnisicience, 
narrative structure, genre, school. That sort of thing

We went to see Another Year with friends recently, one of whom worked as a 
cameraman for a while. Afterwards, he was talking in the café about how you 
could see the director came from the world of television, then he started to 
go into recurring items in the film that gave it structure, and lots more 
besides. I would love to be able to have the tools to do that. As with 
reading, I tend to get completely carried away with the story and think 
about it only over the next few days. Anyway, if any of you have any ideas 
about furthering my filmic education I would be very grateful, bearing in 
mind I am not an academic but am far from being a nitwit.

Anton
