Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Mise-en-scne: Film Style and Interpretation" explores and elucidates constructions of this fundamental concept in thinking about film. In uncovering the history of mise-en-scne within film criticism, and through the detailed exploration of scenes from films as "Imitation of Life" and "Lone Star," John Gibbs makes the case for the importance of a sensitive understanding of film style, and provides an introduction to the skills of close reading. This book thus celebrates film-making as well as film criticism that is alive to the creative possibilities of visual style.

Synopsis:

A timely introductory text that has no rival. Includes discussion of many popular classic films such as Rebel Without a Cause and Imitation of Life.
