Lenses: Ten Ways to Interpret the Movies You Love (and some you hated)

by Philip J. Hohle

Have you ever wondered why reviewers sometimes hate the movies you love? Or why it makes no sense that critics praise some that you hated? Have you found it hard to believe they even saw the same film?

This short book is a self-help resourceâ??but an unusual one at that. In these pages, you will find ten powerful lenses that will help you make better sense of the movies that shook your world. Not only will you enjoy a heightened appreciation for film, you will also become better at describing, analyzing, interpreting, and even judging the movies you see.

What many scholars in the study of cinema and communication make dense, Dr. Hohle makes plain for the layman. Before now, most of the best scholarly theories and interpretations of film were discussed almost exclusively within obscure societies or published in private journals protected by steep paywalls. Breaking out the tools of analysis for all movie lovers, Hohle makes ten simple lenses accessible for any viewer to use. His honest resource is written with the fan in mind.

This book is for those of us who have often left a movie theater feeling unexplained joy or perhaps even a dark air of disruption. The lessons within will help you become more sensitive to both the EFFECT desired by the filmmaker (e.g., the film craft as a noun) as well as the AFFECT the film has on us (as in a verb). In becoming more media fluent, you will become increasingly conscious of the power you allow movies to shape your worldview. The lenses will help you make intelligent sense of the movies you loved as well as ones you disliked.

No need to worry that your enhanced sensitivity will spoil your entertainment. Instead, be assured that your strengthened literacy will increase your appreciation. This book will make you more aware of the rich subtleties most viewers miss. Knowing more about the craft will amplify your love for film.

After learning to use these ten lenses, you will be as qualified as many who post reviews for Rotten Tomatoes or IMDB. You will become that insightful critic for your friends, neighbors, children, or even the stranger in line at the film festival. The more fluent you become, the more you will help others make sense of the movies they lovedâ??and even some they hated.

With events to cater, awkward OB appointments to endure, and her ever-growing baby bump making it impossible to close her jeans, Lexie has to find a way to curb her undeniable attraction toward Fletcher and focus on her new role as a working mother. But it certainly isn’t easy when its clear Fletcher himself feels the same magnetic pull toward Lexie.

Can Lexie leave the gorgeous Fletcher for her best friend to chew up and spit out, or will she cave to her feelings and find love in the stirrups? Life is about to get messy, and we’re not just talking about crumbs in the car seat…

(This is book 1 of a series. Though it is a stand alone novel, it is best if followed up by book 2, Apples & Oranges, and then book 3, Then & Now. Happy reading!)
