Summary

In the Blink of an Eye is celebrated editor Walter Murch's vivid, multifaceted, thought-provoking 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.
