This book could also serve as a guide for the movies you need to see before you die, because the titles he mentions are usually ground-breaking in some way and are, in my own opinion, quite tasteful. I really enjoyed this and the fact that this isn't just another book filled with opinions, its very objective and could help an individual understand what makes a good movie in terms of art, and what movies represent certain parts of our culture, as opposed to just what movies he likes or not.
I recommend American Film: A History, and I think more book should be written like this one because the art side of film is slowly dying and the spectacle and technology of film are crowding out the art. I also enjoyed his style of writing. You could tell that Jon Lewis was incredibly interested in the subject and this therefore is more capable of keeping any readers attention.
