In Senses of Cinema James Magrini reviews Shawn Loht's Phenomenology of Film: A Heideggerian Account of the Film Experience.
It is important to understand Loht’s vision of philosophy, which he conceives as the ultimate way to think the truth of Being. To clarify, when referencing the “truth of Being,” per Heideggerian language, Loht is referring to those essential or existential aspects of our lives that hold the potential for making it meaningful, e.g., phenomenology is concerned specifically with the types of essential issues or themes related to the human condition that inspires film to philosophize, e.g., ontological issues such as death or mortality, profuse and inexplicable suffering, and the persistent burden of inexorable guilt.
