As a new art form (on timescales of the History of Philosophy) I haven't read any good philosophical contemplations on understanding and judging movies. So I thought I'd ask two questions:
Do you have a recommendation for someone that directly tackles the question of beauty, or just the aesthetic judgment, of movies?
How is it that you approach the judging of movies?
, just in passing, the fields of semiotics often raise interesting insights into films and similar types of mediums. Anyway, here's a few links that might begin to serve an interest:
Philosophy of Film (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Surrealism and Dada Aesthetics and Philosophy of Film
Finally, here's a great essay I think you should enjoy and one which led me onto the road of discovering Baudrillard a few years back:
Indeed, check out this wiki on the fellow himself:
Walter Benjamin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Well, I hope that gets the proverbial ball rolling. Good luck in your own pursuits and enquiries :a-ok:
