1.0 out of 5 stars Tiresome, December 22, 2012
This review is from: Film After Film: (Or, What Became of 21st Century Cinema?) (Hardcover)
I'm really reaching maximum fatigue with books like this unreadable mess. Rather than try to construct a coherent narrative the emphasis here is first and foremost never letting us forget for one single second how incredibly clever the author is.

Reading this is like getting stuck next to the intercontinental bore on some 14 hour flight who will not shut up the whole time.

I think the failure in your analogy is that, unlike said "intercontinental bore" which given how laborious that phrase is might as well be you, you can close this book and move on to others if you so choose.
