 I like Monaco's book a lot (especially the DVD version) as an introductory work. If you're interested in genre, Kaminsky's "American Film Genres" is an underrated text.

Hi List Members

I'm a Bachelor of Arts undergraduate student for 2008 at the 
University of Newcastle, in Australia. One of the subjects I am 
taking is called Introduction to Film and Television Studies. Would 
anybody be able to recommend a good textbook that might help me in 
this course. Basically, the course looks at the different genres, 
audience reaction to films, various styles. My favourite film genre 
is film noir and I'm really into the classic films, so hoping I'll 
get to see a few of these in the course.

Hoping someone might be able to help.

Peter Longworth
