Criticism, Reviews, Summaries

Read this first. Use indexes and databases to search for specific criticism, reviews, or summaries of films. Often the full text of the review will be immediately accessible in the database you search. Sometimes, however, the database only provides a citation (article title, journal name, year, etc.) for the review. If you have only a citation, determine if the library has the journal that contains the review you want by following the steps to find journals. The list below provides a selection of sources to find criticism, reviews, or summaries.
