A new edition of a genuine classic in film studies, featuring a new preface and several new sections. 'Against Art' suggests restoring the balance between the virtual world of art and the real world. 'Morphing' discusses the untrustworthy nature of digital images and sounds. 'The Virtual World' describes contemporary culture where everyone is connected to each other's images, and how the ring-tone market rivals the feature film business.

Reviews for How to Read a Film: Movies, Media, and Beyond

*Praise for previous editions: <br> This book is a compliment to the reader....Monaco's spirit is gracious; he has a gift for making accumulations of detail relevant and uncluttered. His manner is modest and undidactic, and he is painstakingly scrupulous. --Samson Raphaelson, Film Comment<br> Anyone who writes about film, who is interested in film seriously, just has to have [Monaco's book]. --Richard Roud, Director, New York Film Festival<br> The best single work of its kind. --Richard Gilman<br> An astute and thoroughgoing analysis....Monaco is cuts above the popular 'criticism' of Reed, Kael, et al. He is lucid and sophisticated. --Publishers Weekly<br>
