Garwood provides a comprehensive account of existing work on film narration and offers an overview of the sensuous aspects of cinematic storytelling, as demonstrated through a broad selection of films. The films used as case studies in the book are particularly 'multi-layered', in that they all make extensive use of materials with sensuously contrasting visual and/or aural properties, such as "The Wizard of Oz" (images that are a mixture of colour and monochrome) and the Bob Dylan biopic "I'm Not There" (multiple performers portraying the same character).
