How to Analyze the Films of Tim Burton
"These titles provide insight into what critical theory is and how popular films can be analyzed through different schools of criticism. There is also some basic biographical information provided about the filmmaker. The authors do not overwhelm readers; instead they approach each critique by explaining the theories and supporting the arguments being presented. They all reinforce the importance of the thesis statement and the idea of supporting their arguments with critical thinking. Colorful photographs and movie stills appear throughout. Great additions for students beginning to study literature or film. "
