This paper discusses Robin Wood's essay, "Drums Along the Mohawk", in which he presents a wide-ranging critical analysis of the work of John Ford in his 1939 drama of the same name. The paper describes Wood's analysis of the film and the arguments that he presents. It then critically analyzes the article and presents the writer's point of view as to the article's validity.
From the Paper:"These strengths related to the conceptual framework of the film also highlight a key weakness in Wood's text: its lack of extensive discussion of the cinematic aspects of the work. Indeed, with the exception of a brief discussion of composition in Ford's work (Wood 176), there is little discussion of the film as film instead of in terms of its conceptual framework. Despite film being a visual medium, with only a handful of exceptions Wood's text does not address the visual qualities of Ford's achievement."
