David Bordwell brings to the surface two very valuable aspects throughout the course of his analysis of storytelling in films, both past and present (among many other storytelling techniques). 1. A breakdown of the other books on screenwriting and structure, the good, the bad, the valuable. 2. A breakdown of both great movies and bad movies and WHY, in the context of the time period and conditions they were made and the approach of the writers.
Bordwell sites an impressive number of films to accompany his academic analysis of story AND how (the directors, too) tell their stories.

David Bordwell is a master of the cinema. In this audiobook, he painstakingly provides the evidence for the faster pace of movies today. His insights are far reaching and must be taken into consideration, if one is to truly understand the impact of one of the most influential forms of entertainment.

Certainly worth a read whether or not you agree with Bordwell's cognitivist stance. A well researched book containing excellent thought and good references and examples.
