Movie Movements

Movie Movements
Movie Movements: Films That Changed The World Of Cinema, by James Clarke, is a short guide to the major artistic movements of international cinema. Eight categories are discussed: realism, Expressionism, avant-garde, Surrealism, documentary, Soviet montage, 'new waves', and digital.

Each category is represented by a few key films, with synopses and brief analysis resembling a condensed version of Film Classics. The three films I regard as the greatest ever made - Psycho, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Citizen Kane - are not included.
