Hello. I'm an SLIS student working on a library pathfinder for SJSU =
Professor David Kahn's graduate seminar "Theories of Theatre and Media =
Arts."

Specifically I hope to expand the film section of a dated pathfinder =
whose Media section includes for film only MacCabe's 1986 "High =
Theory/Low Culture," Monaco's 2000 "How to Read a Film," and Mast & =
Cohen's 1974 "Film Theory and Criticism.

So three questions:
1). Can any of you recommend favorite volumes to supplement or replace =
those three?
2). What is the best film-theory based listserv?
3). I've seen Gary Handman carp once or twice about imdb. I've used imdb =
and several alternatives myself, but which publicly accessible source do =
you guys prefer over it?

thanks
