Reviews - What do customers think about Getting Reel: A Social Science Perspective on Film?
a fantastic journey through film Feb 23, 2007
I was lucky enough to have utilized this book at my university. I was first instructed under the early manuscripts for the book, and then had the pleasure of leading discussion groups in film while using Getting Reel as my tent pole. Anyone who has ever wanted to understand the social science and significance behind film (and not just the technical stuff) must read this book.
