Ann Hornaday: Talking Pictures: How to Watch Movies

The Ivy Bookshop

In Talking Pictures: How to Watch Movies veteran film critic Ann Hornaday offers a lively, opinionated guide to thinking and talking about movies. Following the production of a typical film—from script to final sound edit—she explains how viewers can evaluate every constituent element, and ascertain its quality. How do we know if a film is well-written, above and beyond snappy dialogue? What constitutes a great screen performance? What goes into praise-worthy cinematography, editing and sound design? And what does a director really do?

Ann Hornaday is a film critic at the Washington Post and was a finalist for the 2008 Pulitzer Prize in criticism. She lives in Baltimore, Maryland.
