The philosophy of language film analysis is a form of film analysis that studies the aesthetics of film by investigating the concepts and practices that comprise the experience and interpretation of movies. It is based on the philosophical tradition begun by Ludwig Wittgenstein.

Critics from this tradition often clarify misconceptions used in theoretical film studies[1][2] and instead produce analysis of a film's vocabulary and its link to a form of life.
