BOOK: Film Theory: An Introduction Through The Senses
An interesting book I just finished on the different ways of thinking about Cinema. It following afresh and unique framework that leads us both through film history and the history of film theoryas well as our body and its sensory faculties . In the book authors THOMAS ELSAESSER and MALTE HAGNER explore the understanding of cinema from various angles of sensory experience and look at what film theorists throughout history have said and thought on the matter. Using a wide variety of films to exemplify the abstract ideas, the book balances quite well between academic theory and applied analysis.
