From the Publisher:

A rational framework and analytical approach that allows readers to develop their critical thinking skills in evaluating first story and theme, then dramatic and cinematic elements, and ultimately, the whole film.
More than 400 illustrations from primarily contemporary and classic American films with extensive captions are included throughout the text.
The latest issues in modern film-making are discussed including computer-generated images and animation effects, color in black-and-white film, and cinematic liberties taken in fact-based films.
A full chapter (7) on color with abundant full color photos.
Two appendixes are included in the text. Appendix A highlights the unique issues of watching movies on television. Appendix B provides guidelines for writing about film; it includes several annotated student papers and a sample "clip test."
The text includes many pedagogical study aids including study questions, video exercises, and "Films for Study" at the end of each chapter, as well as a glossary and selected bibliography at the end of the book.
Includes more than 90 new illustrations as well as the latest information on technological advances such as DVDs.
Chapter 14 includes an expanded section on genre films.
A section on both animated and documentary film has been added to Chapter 15.
Chapter 16 looks at rating systems and censorship.
The "Films for Study" lists at the end of each chapter have been updated and expanded and now include the dates of release for each film.
