紐約時報暢銷書作家教你如何看懂電影中的奧密與意涵
暢銷書《教你讀懂文學的27堂課》、《美國文學院最受歡迎的23堂小說課》、《教孩子讀懂文學的19堂課》作者湯瑪斯‧佛斯特最新力作


沒有任何一項藝術如同電影這樣稍縱即逝卻又帶給人們無限歡樂。當戲院中的燈光投向大螢幕,片頭中的獅子開始吼叫,每個人都因為影像中的故事陷入震撼、驚恐、高昂、感動及顫抖等各種情緒。這就是電影的魔力,當人陷入一種極度的興奮與恐懼時,我們的心理狀態會自動分類為視覺、語言、聽覺及空間,再將這四種狀態合而為一,進而將我們觀賞到的影片內容重新定義與理解。作者湯瑪斯‧佛斯特在本書將帶領讀者以電影迷、電影系學生、編劇及導演角度,學習如何理解觀影者的心理變化,深入理解電影的語法,學習如何真正看懂電影藝術。佛斯特以史上知名經典電影作為範例解析,包括AFI所推薦的百年百大電影,解碼電影中的秘密,想成為真正的電影大師,就必須學習看懂電影。

From the New York Times bestselling author of How to Read Literature Like a Professor comes an indispensable analysis of our most celebrated medium, film.

No art form is as instantly and continuously gratifying as film. When the house lights go down and the lion roars, we settle in to be shocked, frightened, elated, moved, and thrilled. We expect magic. While we’re being exhilarated and terrified, our minds are also processing data of all sorts—visual, linguistic, auditory, spatial—to collaborate in the construction of meaning.

Thomas C. Foster’s Reading the Silver Screen will show movie buffs, students of film, and even aspiring screenwriters and directors how to transition from merely being viewers to becoming accomplished readers of this great medium. Beginning with the grammar of film, Foster demonstrates how every art form has a grammar, a set of practices and if-then propositions that amount to rules. He goes on to explain how the language of film enables movies to communicate the purpose behind their stories and the messages they are striving to convey to audiences by following and occasionally breaking these rules.

Using the investigative approach readers love in How to Read Literature Like a Professor, Foster examines this grammar of film through various classic and current movies both foreign and domestic, with special recourse to the “AFI 100 Years-100 Movies” lists. The categories are idiosyncratic yet revealing.

In Reading the Silver Screen, readers will gain the expertise and confidence to glean all they can from the movies they love.
