Hollywood moviemaking is one of the constants of American life, but how much has it changed since the glory days of the big studios? David Bordwell argues that the principles of visual storytelling created in the studio era are alive and well, even in today’s bloated blockbusters. American filmmakers have created a durable tradition—one that we should not be ashamed to call artistic, and one that survives in both mainstream entertainment and niche-marketed indie cinema. Bordwell traces the continuity of this tradition in a wide array of films made since 1960, from romantic comedies like Jerry Maguire and Love Actually to more imposing efforts like A Beautiful Mind. He also draws upon testimony from writers, directors, and editors who are acutely conscious of employing proven principles of plot and visual style. Within the limits of the "classical" approach, innovation can flourish. Bordwell examines how imaginative filmmakers have pushed the premises of the system in films such as JFK, Memento, and Magnolia. He discusses generational, technological, and economic factors leading to stability and change in Hollywood cinema and includes close analyses of selected shots and sequences. As it ranges across four decades, examining classics like American Graffiti and The Godfather as well as recent success like The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, this book provides a vivid and engaging interpretation of how Hollywood moviemakers have created a vigorous, resourceful tradition of cinematic storytelling that continues to engage audiences around the world.

Drawing on a wide range of films from the 1920s to the 1990s--from Keaton's "Our Hospitality" to "Casablanca" to "Terminator 2," Kristin Thompson offers the first in-depth analysis of Hollywood's storytelling techniques and how they are used to make complex, easily comprehensible, entertaining films. Thompson then demonstrates in detail how classical narrative techniques work in ten box-office and critical successes made since the New Hollywood began in the 1970s including "Tootsie," "The Silence of the Lambs, Parenthood, Alien," and "Hannah and Her Sisters."

Bringing together twenty-five years of work on what he has called the "historical poetics of cinema," David Bordwell presents an extended analysis of a key question for film studies: how are films made, in particular historical contexts, in order to achieve certain effects? For Bordwell, films are made things, existing within historical contexts, and aim to create determinate effects. Beginning with this central thesis, Bordwell works out a full understanding of how films channel and recast cultural influences for their cinematic purposes. With more than five hundred film stills, Poetics of Cinema is a must-have for any student of cinema.

David Bordwell is one of the outstanding film scholars of his generation. Throughout his exceptional career, he has been primarily concerned with aesthetic questions related to film as a narrative art. But he recognizes how those aesthetic questions are related to the complex Hollywood system, in which art and commerce are inextricably intertwined; in order to understand the artistry, it is necessary to understand the system. "Reinventing Hollywood" is the culmination of his efforts to analyze the components of that narrative artistry. Bordwell's aim is to provide an anatomy of the "vast storytelling ecosystem" of 1940s Hollywood, to catalogue and to explain what went into the construction of the narratives that made films of that era so so distinctive. In his introduction, he presents the major focus and themes of the book, followed by a chapter that provides an historical framework for the adaptations and innovations he discusses in the remaining ten chapters. Interspersed among these general chapters are nine "interludes" in which he discusses a few important films or the work of innovative directors. A concluding chapter considers the legacy of this period for later filmmakers. In brief, this is an outstanding work by a major scholar who is also an exceptional writer. It is destined to be a classic, "the" book for both scholars and general readers on the narrative art of Hollywood in its heyday.
