Jull book has definitely evolved from its first edition and has a more comprehensive feel, with more detailed summaries of academic arguments etudies developed references to fields of study that make it useful to return to as your studies advance.
Reading the book I was struck by how things have changed since the appearance of the first edition, and how the editor and contributors have kept up with those changes without losing touch with the rich history of cinema that informs contemporary developments. We will continue to recommend Introduction to Film Studies to our advanced students and it will be required reading at entry level. Harvey O’Brien, University College Dublin, Ireland “Nelmes’ Introduction to Film Studies perfectly combines introducing students to film as an object of study and to the various ways that film can and has been analyzed within the academy.
Its balance between defining film form terminology and providing a history of film with more current film theories is perfect for the course I teach, which includes film studies concentrators and many generally interested students from other disciplines looking for an elective. The text’s interdisciplinarity allows me to teach film in meaningful ways to a broad array of students.
It also strikes a nice balance between providing sometimes difficult concepts in theorists’ original language and explicating the significance of the passages in language students can more comfortably understand. More practically, each chapter serves as a model of analysis and the questions for discussion, and suggested further readings and viewings as well as related internet resources allow me to construct assignments that engage the students more fully in the areas they are interested.
The case studies are perfect for introxuction assignments, and the broader theoretical models can be turned into term projects. The text’s applicability of methodology to films and movements as well as other areas of study, e.
The new and detailed discussion of contemporary film technology is a welcome addition, bringing to the fore a frequently neglected topic that today’s students are eager to explore. First Edition “Simply the best introductory volume in the field so far. An admirable synthesis of historical, social and theoretical considerations of cinema, presented in an engaging and accessible manner. The revised edition keeps up with changes tsudies technology and the discussions of Hollywood are particularly illuminating I highly recommend this text.
Illustrations are plentiful and all important concepts and terminology are accessibly explained. I encourage students to make it their top priority reading. The extended range of chapters, which are carefully chosen, display up-to-date scholarship using many recent films and provide a fully rounded neles extended introduction to film studies.
It offers a fresh perspective on the subject and in an age saturated by the moving image helps us to navigate some difficult terrain. The fourth edition furthers this study through introductiln existing chapters and adding critical new research of this compelling medium.
