When I watch movies, I more so theorize than analysis. I always have some kind theory on why and how an event occurred in a movie, but I do analysis some to come up with my crazy conspiracies. So I found the How To Read A Movie, fun to read. It is about how to analysis a movie and how critics judge movies. Some of the information Ebert gave I already knew which as the when a camera gets close shots, the directors wants you to pay attention to that certain scene or moments. But there were things that I do not know such as directors will put people in certain places to display a kind of aura. For example Ebert wrote that directors will put their actors in the left to show a negative or bad attitude and the right to show to more positive person. Overall I really liked this article. So what did any of you read about movie analysis that you already know and what you did not know ?
