Re: anyone here have a cinema degree?

This is a book I'm 95 percent certain I read in college.......26 years ago. If it's the book I think it is, it had----and may still have-----a section on TOUCH OF EVIL. I majored in English and minored in RTVF. While I learned a hell of a lot from my film courses, I won't pretend to remember all of Giamatti's terms in his book. But I'll bet he mentioned mise-en-scene as well as assorted approaches to film shooting, narrative and techniques involved for specific classic films. If you want to list some of the terms your edition has, I could most likely apply them to THE GODFATHER......

......though it's worth noting other films, whether drama or escapism, can probably be adapted to Giamatti's terms.
