You could get very lost in film analysis texts simply because there are
so many narrowly defined ones, you end up losing the plot. If you
want a general introduction to the area, the follow are useful:
Bywater, M., & Sobchack, T. (1989). An introduction to film criticism:
Major critical approaches to narrative film. New York: Longman.
Monarco, J. (199?). How to read a film: The art, technology, language,
history, and theory of film and media. New York: Oxford Uni Press.
Giannetti, L. (199?). Understanding movies. Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey:
Prentice Hall.
Bordwell, D., & Thompson, K. (199?). Film art: An introduction.
These are standard texts. I haven't put precise publication dates because
they are updated regularly.
