Abstract

Most of the film reviews in Malaysia deal with 'fault-finding' rather than appearing
as critical analysis of the film. Emphasis has been given on approaching film making
commercially and as an entertainment; aim has been rather to making profit than to
invoking philosophical issues and interpretation.
Methodology
Survey among film academicians and film practitioners in Malaysia concerning the
knowledge and the substance of Philosophy in Film and their concern and point of
views. Interviews are also conducted which are the primary data.
Findings
1. Film as Seventh Art:
(The Significance of Understanding Philosophy in Film)
2. Film as a Product of Occident:
(The Significance of Evaluating Film from Philosophy of the West and Islam)
3. The Significance of Film Criticism in Malaysia for the Industry and Audiences
Conclusion
Film as Seventh Art; the link between philosophy and film is significant. Film is
philosophical argumentative medium. It is argumentative in the sense of knowledge
development, the thinking process in studying a film.
Recommendation
The Seventh Art epigrammatic methodologyl concept, as the theoretical aspects in
filmmaking and film studies to be enhanced. Other recommendations cited on the
