The Analysis of Film brings together Raymond Bellour's acclaimed studies of classic Hollywood film. It is at once a book about the methods of close film analysis, the narrative structure of Hollywood film, Hitchcock's work -- specifically, The Birds, Marnie, Psycho, North by Northwest -- and the portrayal of women in the West. Finally, it is a book about cinema itself and the love for cinema that drives the passion for analyzing the supreme art form of the 20th century.

The book is also a model for writing about the intricacies of film narrative, shot by shot, sequence by sequence, while addressing larger contextual issues of subjectivity, desire, and identification in Western cultural forms. A new, final chapter on D. W. Griffith's The Lonedale Operator brilliantly demonstrates that the dynamics of repetition and alternation that Bellour discovered to be the heartbeat of Hollywood narrative film were already present in nascent form at the beginnings of cinema.
