Why does the cinema have the power to move the heart, stimulate the mind, and dazzle the imagination? How did the art of film develop from its origins to the present day?
This course covers the history and aesthetics of the movies. It traces the experiments and innovations that gave rise to the modern cinema, developing a vocabulary that helps explain the variety of choices filmmakers make when they construct shots and edit them together.
In each lecture, Professor Raphael Shargel introduces a period of film history, talks about its importance, covers aspects of cinematic technique, and illustrates his points by analyzing specific movies from the era under discussion. The course thus has both breadth and depth, covering the major movements in film history while at the same time focusing on key pictures worthy of study and enjoyment.

Pace, Passion... and Gulping
Very interesting.. highly recomended..
Interesting and catching attention interpretation of films. Listening to the lectures has changed they way I will look and think about films. I bought few audiobooks about films and this is definitely the best one, comes with access to on-line resources which is a bonus.
Mr Shargel is very passionate and convincing about films and that makes listening even more interesting (not like some emotionless narrators), great knowledge!
The performance could be improved a bit .. but content is worth listening despite some faults in performance..
Very much recommended for film students and anyone interested in films - you will look at films in a new way after listening to these lectures..
