Where Should I Start?

Looking for a movie review or critical article on Jerry Maguire or the latest James Bond movie?  Where you start will depend on whether the movie is recent or an older classic. It will also depend on the type of analysis you want to undertake.  Are you looking for scholarly research or will a popular review suffice.

In this guide, for more recent movies, try the databases or web resources.  Websites may be the most up-to-date, but the reviews will probably not be scholarly.

For older movies, start by using the print sources.
