A comparative history of moving images from around the world by
A comparative history of moving images from around the world by one of the film world’s best living film authorities. Great prose. Reads like a personal conversation. Reflective. First film book I’ve read that ties in everything from Eadweard Muybridge (what an odd man) to today’s videogames, commercials, and cable TV while at the same time giving significant thought to not ‘what happened’ or ‘when it happened,’ but ‘what does it mean’? You don’t have to be a filmmaker to appreciate it; it’s written for all of us who live in a world of tiny, private screens, for all of us who sometimes feel the tail might be wagging the dog. I liked it because it made me ask the question, ‘Why do I watch?’” – Clay Stafford, author and founder of Killer NashvilleWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
