film style and technology

recommended by a DP who always buys members of his crew this book when production wraps. very interesting alternative to more traditional film theory. not sure i completely buy it, but glad i read this book.

The best movie book ever.

The best movie book ever. If you're looking for just the facts and no b.s., this is the book for you.

refreshing alternative to theoretical film study

Barry Salt takes on the highly theoretical schools of film studies and wins! His argument rests on linking film style with technical improvements in technology. Fundamentally, this 'physicalist' angle functions as an important tool for understanding how certain film styles came to be. The book benefits from the fact that Salt has seen practically every Western film made since cinema began. Must have book for any cinema lover's library.
