Theorizing the moving image

£19.99

Product description

Theorizing the Moving Image brings together a selection of essays written by one of the leading critics of film over the last two decades. In this volume, Noel Carroll examines theoretical aspects of film and television through penetrating analysis of such genres as soap opera, documentary, and comedy, and such topics as sight gags, film metaphor, point-of-view editing, and movie music. Throughout, individual films are considered in depth. Carroll's essays, moreover, represent the cognitivist turn in film studies, containing in-depth criticism of existing approaches to film theory, and heralding a new approach to film theory. This book, published in 1996, is in good condition with some scratches to the cover and large crease to the bottom corner of the back of the cover and almost a clear mark from where a price label has been removed. There is some fading to the spine from where the book has been stored in sunlight and minor creasing to the top and bottom of the spine from where it has been stored. There is some very small folds to the corners of a few pages and some small marks to the page block, only visible when the book is closed. This book is a most read for those interested in film and television theory.
