This comprehensive introduction to film text focuses on three topics: how movies express meanings, how viewers understand those meanings, and how cinema functions globally as both an art and a business. Using clear, accessible, and jargon-free writing, this is the only introductory film text to examine the elements of film style and the viewer's contribution to the cinema experience. How do viewers interpret the effects filmmakers create? How do filmmakers anticipate, and build on, the likely ways viewers will react to certain kinds of stories and audio-visual designs?

Praise for "Movies and Meaning" "I think "Movies and Meaning" is still the best all-around introductory film text on the market today. I will continue to use it with pleasure." ~Thomas Sobchack, "University of Utah" "This text is user friendly in its size and weight, relatively compact, and manageable to transport and read. It has nice integration of photos with the text; overall the layout is inviting, engaging, dynamic. The writing is generally clear, accessible yet challenging. And the book covers most of what I consider to be important for students to successfully complete the course." ~David Laderman, "College of San Mateo" "This book has very good coverage of the topics, and it is well written. It is also organized well, with the earlier chapters supporting the material in later chapters about criticism and theory. The chapters on the studio system and how Hollywood influences and is influenced by international cinema are also very good." ~Jay Cofield, "University of Montevallo"
