He provides critical studies of The Goddess, Stagecoach, Death in Venice, Vertigo, North by Northwest, Judith of Bethulia, and Bringing up Baby; analysis of filmmakers Billy Wilder, Alfred Hitchcock, Eric Rohmer, D.W. Griffith, Charles Chaplin, and Jean Renoir; and studies of movements and genres such as cinema verite, classical cinema, and Latin American cinema. The new edition has 14 added essays and a new foreword. Some of the essays have been previously published elsewhere.
