Feel free to answer any or all of the following questions in comments about the Introduction and chapter 1 in Spadoni (see the Calendar).
- What does Spadoni mean by "form" and "formal analysis"? How is this form of thinking and writing about film different from "evaluation"?
- Why does Spadoni distinguish between different levels and kinds of meaning?
- What are Spadoni's "five principles" for watching films and what do they mean?
