This is a mind-blowing book that any fan of cinema should have on his shelf. It will revolutionize how you see your favorite science fiction films of the past and forever change how you view any film you see in the future regardless of genre. William Whittington takes you on a fascinating ride through the history of science fiction cinema and explains why sound in film is every bit as important as the picture in expressing the filmmaker's intentions. When I went back and viewed the films he discusses, I came away with a whole new understanding of them and how innovations in sound design helped to make them the classics we love. I especially enjoyed the anecdotes on the creation of sound design for the films The Exorcist and Star Wars. This is an important, must-have book. I can barely wait for the author's forthcoming book on sound design in horror films.
