    ePUB Edward Ross ´ Filmish Kindle ↠ ´ filmish kindle, Filmish PDF/EPUBThis plays out like a short introductory college course on film history and film theory with the lecturer and his PowerPoint presentation adapted to graphic novel form and each section of the book coming off as a separate class session There is nothing in depth here but it is a decent overviewI have a uibble that as an artist Ross can barely pull off the likeness of the celebrities and actors around whom the book revolves Fortunately he provides endnotes that include identifications of most of the people portrayed in the artwork On a broader note the book highlights a sort of catch 22 By justly disparaging the dominance of white males in the film industry throughout its history and drawing attention to underrepresented peoples here and there throughout the book Ross made me conscious of how many of his examples for film c

    ePUB Edward Ross ´ Filmish Kindle ↠ ´ filmish kindle, Filmish PDF/EPUBImagine taking a film class by graphic novel That would be the perfect conceit for Filmish by Edward Ross Ross builds a de facto history of cinema via the cinematic lexicon of eye body space time voice and language power and ideology and technology and technophobia His examples of the uses of each of these areas are useful but it seems as if his writing style is similar to that of a college student who over annotates and at the same time relies too strongly on a few sources This is particularly visible in the first two chapters which repetitively use a book by Laura Mulvey cited on pp 17 19 20 22 28 33 42 and 54 as well as anothe

    ePUB Edward Ross ´ Filmish Kindle ↠ ´ filmish kindle, Filmish PDF/EPUBThis was a fantastic journey through film divided into 7 chapters exploring the following aspects of film The Eye; The Body; Sets Architecture; Time; Voice Language; Power Ideology; Technology TechnophobiaI've always been interested in film history and the art of film making and cinema and this was indeed enlightening and uite educational as well The graphics are beautiful and I loved the different illustrations of films and characters that we've known and seen our whole lives and are instantly recognizable I loved how he took diffe

    ePUB Edward Ross ´ Filmish Kindle ↠ ´ filmish kindle, Filmish PDF/EPUBEdward Ross takes readers on an affectionate intelligent tour of film history with uite a bit of analysis and cultural theory He makes his ideological stances clear offers up context and rhetorical uestioning also makes clear his great and nerdy love of film While I wouldn't mind seeing a similarly themed book written by a number of people through than one man's eyes and though at times it struck me as a bit dry or the atmosphere a little too controlled somehow I enjoyed Filmish and learned a lot from it I've read a bit about film history and theory and am familiar with many of the ideas in here but I loved seeing it all unfold in comic form Ross Ross narrates in

    ePUB Edward Ross ´ Filmish Kindle ↠ ´ filmish kindle, Filmish PDF/EPUBThis was an interesting book an introduction to film theory in graphic novel form Ross has a pleasant clear line style that serves the material well The book is divided into chapters each dealing with a different theme The Eye The Body Sets and Architecture etc His examples are well chosen and his footnotes at the back of the book add further details and suggest even films for the curious The book is perhaps a touch on the light side think o

    ePUB Edward Ross ´ Filmish Kindle ↠ ´ filmish kindle, Filmish PDF/EPUBI thought this was going to be a Film HistoryArt for Beginners in the way that Scott McCloud's non fiction graphica explores the vocabulary of comics Wrong It's like Advanced Film Theory for Beginners in a McCloud style Each chapter is a graphic essay on a particular aspect of film that permeates the whole history of film eually distributed between arthouse cinema and blockbuster Hollywood product It seems at times that presenting this material as graphica is a labor intensive way of avoiding seeking permission from the studios for reproducing images and the work it takes to reproduce those images in graphica excuses the author from deeply exploring the issues addres

    ePUB Edward Ross ´ Filmish Kindle ↠ ´ filmish kindle, Filmish PDF/EPUBMore than a comic Filmish is an illustrated essay on cinema Don't read it if you just like comics; read it if you like reading about cinema regardless of your opinion on the comic book medium Now if you like both comics and cinema just as I do then it's a must buy The book is divided in seven chapters the eye the body time architecture and sets voice and language power and ideology technology and technophobia all dealing with how cinema has involved and how it affects human society Although I do not agree with all the opinions expressed by Ross and he has interpreted some movies way differently than I this book is extremely interesting and my to see list has grown a lot Ross's drawing is not great not bad just not great but serves its purpose right it complements the text adeuatelyIn the end of the book there are the author's notes and there are plenty of them along with a detailed filmography and bibliography

    ePUB Edward Ross ´ Filmish Kindle ↠ ´ filmish kindle, Filmish PDF/EPUBDisclaimer I read this book in its Russian translation So perhaps some of my discontentment stems from the fact that the Russian title translates as 'How films work Theory and History of Cinematography' For this reason my uotations from the book may not be exact However I strongly believe that this book could've been called anything and my general impression would be the same If I had to guess the title of this book based on its contents these would be my guesses'White Hetero Men and Why They are to Blame' 'Transphobia and the Patriarchy — The USA is bad' 'Ban muscular men from the big screen' 'MY Political Views down YOUR gullet Also maybe something concerning som

    ePUB Edward Ross ´ Filmish Kindle ↠ ´ filmish kindle, Filmish PDF/EPUBLoved the idea of exploring film history and concepts in graphic novel format The structure is also something that I appreciated 7 sections dealing with different aspects of cinema through specific examples from films There is also an extensive bibliography at the end and a list of all of the films mentioned here which could make for a very interesting watchlist However I had some major issues with this book First of all most of the text consists of uotes from other works listed in bibli
