The book appeared very promising by its description, especially in terms of its contemporary relevance, but left me wanting more. The author has a follow-up book due out in the Fall of 2011, so perhaps it will help rectify the situation.

The production design of 23 films of the 1980s and 1990s is analyzed here. The films are divided into five areas: realistic films set in the present day, stylized films (including horror) set in the present day, period films, period films that move through several decades, and science fiction and fantasy films. Among the movies analyzed are The Silence of the Lambs, She's Gotta Have It, The Fisher King, Ragtime, Barton Fink, Goodfellas, and Alien. The quality of the designs is assessed by a careful reading of the mise-en-scene. Lists with This Book.

While the viewers eyes are trained on the actors, the production design sets the mood for the film.

While the viewer's eyes are trained on the actors, the production design sets the mood for the film. The design also subtly comments on the action and the characters, moves the plot forward and adds to its symbolic content. The production design of 23 films of the 1980s and 1990s is analyzed here.

This books leaves a lot to be desired. I would NOT recommend anyone buy it for any kind of indepth discussion or analysis of production design. The author merely gives a loose sysnopsis and drops in an occasional reference to production design, a scene's location, etc. I don't think the author knows the subject well and lacks the ability to thoroughly think, analyze and write about it.

I have to agree with J. Amedio (above). I checked this book out from the library and was surprised at how brief each of the chapters was. The book appeared very promising by its description, especially in terms of its contemporary relevance, but left me wanting more. Useful as an overview text only. The author has a follow-up book due out in the Fall of 2011, so perhaps it will help rectify the situation.
