Aspects of a Movie Genre because in fact, it is two books. The first part dates from the early seventies, and the second part was written in 2004.

This most certainly applies to me, who have watched westerns since my childhood and who, even as a middle-aged man, need a western movie at least once a week for otherwise I’d have the feeling that something is missing. But it also seems to apply to Philip French, author of the book Westerns.

Philip French's original "Westerns" published back in the Seventies has always been one of the most interesting and enjoyable books on the Western genre I have read. His analysis of the political overtones of Westerns produced between 1950 and 1974 has always struck me as very thought-provoking.

This book not only gives us French's 1977 version of his original book but contains what is essentially a second book in which French looks at Westerns made between "Heaven's Gate" and "Open Range."

The "second book" is just as enjoyable as the first. It is marvelous to see someone with French's grasp of the history of the genre deal with films like "Unforgiven" and "Dances with Wolves" as well as the two I named earlier. (He covers many more films as well.)

French is simply one of the best writers on film. He writes in a jargon free style that never lets the reader forget that movies are entertaining (as well as conveying a particular outlook.) Highly recommended.

I read this as a textbook for a class, so keep in mind that I have the disadvantage of not necessarily being the target audience. However, I cannot say that I enjoyed this book at all. I found it incredibly difficult to follow and, once I'd realized that it was going to be like this the whole way through, to pick up each time we had a new assignment from it.

While his insights into Westerns may be valuable, the way he presents them is extremely difficult to read, especially for those who are unschooled in the genre. He assumes much familiarity on the reader's part with every Western ever. Generally, he lists a film that supports his point, then proceeds to summarize the entire film in a tone that may be amusing to some but to me seemed to imply that he was just conversationally sharing his (not humorous) opinion. As this went on, it all started to read like this to me: "In this film, which you've never heard of, all of this happens, and now I've spoiled the entire film for you so there's no point in your seeing it anymore."

The format, too, is daunting. He makes no use of screenshots to illustrate his point or to just break up his overwhelming walls of text. Even the paragraphs are generally all generally the same length, which makes it tedious. In short, this book was a pain to read.

This book was EASY to follow and understand, despite what another reviewer here as written. I found French's insights into the western genre fascinating and well-considered. Highly recommend this book!
