Understanding the film: an introduction to film appreciation

Understanding the film: an introduction to film appreciation. Each person may perceive things differently from another.

Film is said to be an analysis of the obvious.

I bought this for my Media Arts class for fall of 2012. The chapters are written more like magazine articles, making your reading pace feel more like leisure than studying for class. It covers what goes on behind the scenes in the movie industry. I have no complaints about this book.

This is poorly written and I imagine anyone over the age of 14 would be insulted by the tone in which the authors speak to the reader. I found several passages in the book particularly insulting, such as "You may be most familiar with American Films and not realize that there is a large International film industry." It seems the authors have assumed that I'm an idiot or have been raised by wolves. This is being used as the text for my 300 level college class and I am stunned. There are much better texts out there. Don't waste your time with this.

Every once in a while a classroom textbook will capture the attention and cause a student to read beyond the chapter assigned. Understanding the Film is one of those books. Its many quotes and anecdotal passages, along with its profiles of well known people in the film industry, would have me engrossed before I'd realize that what I was "supposed" to be reading was on the other end of the book.
WARNING TO STUDENTS: If you browse this book, you'll never make it to your assigned reading.
The authors, Bone and Johnson, cover every aspect of film, from the people who make movies to the people who review them to the people who go to see them. The chapters are digestible segments outlining each element of the film experience, yet overlap enough to give the whole thing unity.
As a budding filmmaker, I particularly enjoyed the profiles, which were the first person accounts of actors, directors, special effects artists, and other industry professionals. Cutting through the Hollywood mystique, which has long made the movie business seem inaccessible to us mere mortals, the profiles allow us to see that there are real people behind the hype - people with dreams and aspirations that we can identify with.
What didn't I like? Not much. The book did get off to a tedious start. In showing that film was "big business", the first chapter seemed like an endless string of statistics and figures. And, as with most textbooks, I thought it was a little pricey. I paid $35 at the university book store (I should have shopped Amazon), which is a little high for a paperback.
All said, I definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in movies and the film industry.

When I prepared to introduce film appreciation to my 9th graders, I found this book a good teacher resource. It not only gives a comprehensive overview of all aspects of the film industry (history, production and editing techniques, profiles of actors, directors, producers, film reviews and studies, list of good films, etc), but also provides compellings reasons for why film should be studied in the classroom. Movies are indeed the novel of 21st century, and this book is helpful for understanding why.

I have been teaching a high school film class for the last three years. I ordered this book and decided to adopt this as the course text. However, the book reads like a long-winded and dull run-on sentence. Film terms are not clearly explored, and the text glosses over concepts. My students were bored to tears with this text. Most of the information presented was common sense and overly generalized. Now I am using the text Film: An Introduction which is an amazing first textbook filled with examples of film terminology. Beginning film students need specific examples to demonstrate film terminology and concepts. The new textbook explores mise-en-scene, cinematography, sound, and editing, all within the first four chapters with plenty of color and black and white photographs to illustrate the concepts. I wish that I could get a refund on Understanding the Film. Trust me, the book is worthless, and I am perplexed by the other two reviewers who really appreciated the book.
