In the Blink of an Eye is celebrated editor Murch's vivid, multifaceted thought-provoking essay on film editing Starting with the most basic question -- "Why do cuts work?" -- Murch treats the reader to a marvelous "ride" through the esthetics and practical concerns of cutting film. He offers his insights on continuity and discontinuity in editing, dreaming and waking reality; the blink of the eye as both an analog to and an emotional cue for the cut; nonlinear digital editing; and much more.
