A History of Narrative Filmby David A. Cook
Synopses & Reviews
The Fourth Edition adds an entire chapter on computer-generated imaging, updates filmographies for nearly all living directors mentioned in the text, and includes major new sections that both revisit old content and introduce contemporary trends and movements.
Book News Annotation:
Suitable as both a reference and a teaching text, this volume integrates film history and aesthetics with an analysis of the technological, social, and economic contexts of world cinema. It concentrates on narrative film, excluding documentary cinema, animated cinema, and the experimental avant-garde. The fourth edition features a new chapter on computer generated imaging as well as a new section of plates illustrating the development of color film technologies.

Sophisticated in its analytical content, current and comprehensive in its coverage of all aspects of film and filmmaking, and informed throughout by fascinating historical and cultural contexts, is widely acknowledged to be the definitive text in the field.
