Corrigan and White cover the formal analysis of film well; however, the particular strength of this book is its emphasis on film viewing, the foregrounding of film spectators and their response to films. Also very useful is the chapter "Writing a Film Essay", which provides a practical guide to notetaking, research, structure and writing.

Who is it for? Lecturers and undergraduate students; also a useful reference text.

Presentation: Written in accessible language, the book is well laid out with clear headings and subheadings ensuring easy navigation of the 14 chapters, collected within five sections. Includes colour images, a glossary defining complex or industry-specific terms, and access to a companion website.

Would you recommend it? Yes. It compares well with similar texts on the market.
