Example text

COSTUME Genre, a term designating films of a common type, provides an easy inroad to costuming: we can think easily of a cowboy’s look as he rides into town in a Western, or of a spaceship officer’s garb as she sits before a flashing control board in a science fiction film. Because genre is an effect of repetition, we learn its codes so that we can quickly orient ourselves to the new iteration of a given story. This form of “typing” is not limited to genre films, of course. Sergei Eisenstein’s The Battleship Potemkin (1925) exploits “typage” in order to differentiate the heroic sailors from the rigid and oppressive officers on the battleship.

A note for future study: many fine textbooks extend the discussion of film analysis you are about to read. Three of them upon which many academics and college/university courses rely regularly THE LANGUAGE OF FILM are Jill Nelmes’ Introduction to Film Studies, David Bordwell and Kristin Thompson, Film Art: An Introduction and Timothy Corrigan and Patricia White, The Film Experience. All three texts multiply the number of terms I present here, and they acknowledge the paradoxical, if not impossible, nature of any taxonomy of film.

As the words in bold type throughout this book indicate, however, I find some specialized language nonetheless helpful for describing what we see and hear and then thinking deeply about it, just as the ability, I believe, to parse a sentence renders one’s own writing more precise and nuanced in order to make an argument. Here in this chapter, then, I condense key areas of film analysis; in the remainder of the book, I visit some of these other ways of thinking through the phenomena of cinema. The title of this chapter, “the language of film,” means, then, to suggest that one learn the language of film analysis precisely in order to say something meaningful about a given film, or about cinema (and you will see that most of what follows applies equally to digital practices, some of which I distinguish especially in the realms of cinematography and editing).
