I have read all of the fairly thick How to Read a Film by James Monaco. I don't believe that one can learn to read a film from this volume. I believe that its only merit is to introduce a few buzzwords or important names and to list a few hundred books that one might read to further the cinematic experience. For those buzzwords and the bibliography I have given the work one star instead of half a one. ( )
