A SHORT GUIDE TO WRITING ABOUT FILM by Timothy Corrigan is a useful and
relatively inexpensive book that my students seem to benefit from. It has
good, short introductions to the basic elements of film analysis and the
basic critical approaches. It allows me to demonstrate the difference
between reviews and critical essays, though, like most books of this type,
I don't find the sample papers particularly helpful.
