David Bordwell on studying cinema

Much of what Professor David Bordwell argues here is relevant for understanding the reasons for undertaking a course in film studies.

There are several essays and articles on Bordwell's site and they are well worth reading to develop one's ability to analyse films. Here's one on film technique: The Hook: Scene Transitions in Classical Cinema. Bordwell's use of film images to support his points should also be seen as the model to follow when writing essays.
