Films by Genre
775 Categories, Styles, Trends, and Movements Defined, With A Filmography for EachBook - 1993
Since the early days of cinema, there has been an insatiable demand for new product. As the number of movies increased, many began to resemble each other and fall into certain types of genres. Critics, filmmakers, and audiences have classified films into groupings for critical appraisal, easy identification of the subject, or a quick clue to the film's nature.From abstract through erotic, from new Chinese cinema or zombie films, 775 genres are included in this comprehensive reference work. Each entry includes a brief description of the category, the subgenres or related types of films, and a list of movies that best exemplify the genre, showing original title or titles, nationality (73 countries are represented), year of production, additional titles (working title, re-release title, translation, etc.) and director or filmmaker.
