Books that did a great job of explaining films

This topic from Long and Short Reviews was an interesting one, because it's been a while since I read anything that could be considered to be explaining something. But I do love film, and I recently found two books that are a great addition to any film lover's collection.

Men, Women and Chain Saws - Carol J. Clover. All about the treatment of men and women in the horror industry, and an excellent in-depth read for a horror lover like me.

The Science of Interstellar - Kip Thorne. For anyone (like me) who loved the film but found the science a little complicated, this is an accessible read which goes into the background and explains it perfectly.

So which books would you recommend?

    1. It certainly worked for me as physics isn't my strong suit.

  2. Good books to add to a nonfiction lover's library. I went in a little different direction here.

  4. I'll have to check out Men, Women, and Chain Saws. The tot loves his horror movies and wants to get into that industry, so sounds like a must read. Thanks!
