Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

From the fluid merging of 'real' filmed and imagined digital spaces of The Matrix, the layering of fact and fiction in modified gaming worlds such as 9-11 Survivor, and the alchemic fusion of fine art and moving image in Matthew Barney's evocative Cremaster Cycle, THE END OF CELLULOID charts a journey across cinematic boundaries.

With the recent slump in the box office receipts, Matt Hanson's book is highly poignant. In it, the author surveys various film-makers on the cutting edge of experimentation as they try to redefine and push the boundaries of the artform. The likes of Matthew Barney and Koji Morimoto (of the Akira fame) receive their dues. Furthermore, Hanson also pays particular attention to how the evolution of the latest video games are influencing the film media as the line between games and films blurs.

I highly recommend this book along with Hanson's more recently published book "Sci-fi Cityscapes". Matt Hanson is an eloquent writer with razor sharp power of observation. I find his book very satisfying to read because of both his practical informative and philosophical style of writing, not to mention the wealth of illustrations that fill his books.

I purchased this book used, in great condition. It's really a coffee table book that upon viewing is prone for a conversation starter of what is and what is to be soon. The photos and illustrations within are well worth the price. I have skimmed through this book several times now, seeing something new each time.

I think they are insecure about the fact that digital doesn't look great to everyone and it's just ones and zeros. Films are tangible originals that digital helps us edit and see. You can't replace tangible art with ones and zeros.
It didn't happen in audio analogue recording so I don't know why they think it's going to? Weird
