  1987 Black Maria Film + Video Festival Essay
Films are different in that the image of a donkey in a film does carry with it the direct and overt denotative message: "here is a four legged animal with long ears." But it is the connotative (and often arbitrary) meaning of visual images which makes films interesting.
If a film is seen as communicating through visual symbols which derive their meaning at least partly from the viewer's cultural values or from other films the viewer has seen, then the viewer must be involved in the construction of that meaning.
If the average film viewers, and the 67% of the population who admit to pollsters that they get most of their news information from TV news,.were to fully recognize that the images in film and video are not transparent and objective records of reality, it would be an important start toward a visually literate society.

There’s no question but that film — any film — is a kind of visual music: the alternation and development of individual shots being the equivalent of the alternations and development of phrases in music.
Certainly film is more visually musical than theater, which mostly depends on the spoken word.
There’s the visual repetition of reflected images: the film begins and ends with an image seen through water, and there are crucial moments in the story where this reflected imagery comes into play.

 Hamburger Hill (1987) - Channel 4 Film review
While films like Apocalypse Now and Platoon used the Vietnam war as a metaphor for the human condition, Hamburger Hill unpretentiously tries to convey the horror of war through gritty realism.
It's a surprisingly refreshing, if limiting, technique, depicting a succession of battle scenes involving a diminishing troop of soldiers as they desperately try to further their advance, for no other reason than that is what they have been ordered to do.
This is a film about the futility of war expressed in the simplest terms.

 MMI Special Report - Mill Valley Film Festival 1987   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Among the more intriguing entries at the Mill Valley Film Festival this year is Antony Thomas' excellent documentary "Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done." Originally intended as a "Frontline" special last May, the film focuses on the significant relationship between Christian fundamentalists and right-wing politicians.
Thomas' film provides a rich, detailed investigation of his controversial subjects, and his soft-spoken interviewing style clearly soothes the fundamentalists into revealing themselves in ways they never would if his approach were more combative.
The film gets considerable mileage out of situations which do not ordinarily lend themselves to comedy.
