Determining Film Art.
Bullis, Roger
Journal of the Wisconsin Communication Association, v4 n2 p91-101 Spring 1974
The criteria by which films can and should be analyzed as art are discussed in this paper. A triangular model of theme-form-content is presented with form given greater significance than is usually the case in film criticism. The form-content-theme synthesis is the process in which theme is made clear by means of form and content within an artistic framework. It is suggested that if the theme-form-content synthesis triangle occurs to any great extent in a film, it can be argued that the film is art. (TO)
