Industry Reviews

Sharff's compact, lucid treatise is full of practical film-maker's points as well as intriguing theoretical notions. He's as cogent at explaining why a good film 'phrase' must contain a minimum of three shots as he is in giving a defense of master shot discipline, which can be elegant in the right hands (Lubitsch's?).
