Hint: Searching for film literature is sometimes problematic because of all the terms that can be used to describe films. Utilize boolean logic by included the following search string, without the parentheses, (film* or movie* or "motion picture*" or cinema)  as part of your search. The asterisk acts as a truncation device and will give you alternate endings to the word—film or films and movie or movies. The quotation marks indicate a phrase.
