""In my research on silent cinema I found very little written on the
subject of movement (objects within the frame, camera, movement created
by editing etc.) in Western scholarship. Closely connected issues of
tempo and rhythm also received little attention. My problem is mainly
methodological: How does one account for movement, tempo and rhythm in
the analysis of film style?""
Try Bela Balazs' "Theory of The Film" and "The Close-up and The Face of Man",
Mearleau-Ponty's "Cinema and The New Psychology", and some essays by Hugo
Munsterberg's "Photoplay: a Psychologycal Study".
