Film Editing: The Art of the Expressive offers an analysis of editing in the sound film that considers editing as an expressive strategy rather than a mere technique. It reveals that editing can be approached and studied in a similar way to other aspects of film such as mise-en-scene. Studies on editing or montage tend to focus on silent cinema, yet this book claims that an examination of editing should also consider the role of the soundtrack. The aim is to examine the way in which editing can make meaning, and the book addresses editing as part of a wider context, and as a crucial element of the overarching design and vision of a film. The book includes detailed studies of Scorsese's Raging Bull, Hitchcock's Rear Window and Godard's A Boul de Souffle.

In the Blink of an Eye is editor Walter Murch's essay of film editing. Starting with what might seem to be the most basic editing question - Why do cuts work? - he treats the reader to a marvelous "ride" through the esthetics and practical concerns of cutting film. Along the way, he offers his insights on such subjects as continuity and discontinuity in editing, dreaming, and real life; the criteria of a good cut; and the blink of the eye as both an analog to and an emotional cue for the cut. New to this second edition is Murch's lengthy meditation on the current state of digital editing.

When the movie business adopted some of the ways of other big industries in 1920s America, women—who had been essential to the industry’s early development—were systematically squeezed out of key behind-the-camera roles. Yet, as female producers and directors virtually disappeared for decades, a number of female film editors remained and rose to the top of their profession, sometimes wielding great power and influence. Their example inspired a later generation of women to enter the profession at mid-century, several of whom were critical to revolutionizing filmmaking in the 1960s and 1970s with contributions to such classics as Bonnie and Clyde, Jaws and Raging Bull. Focusing on nine of these women and presenting shorter glimpses of nine others, this book tells their captivating personal stories and examines their professional achievements.
