Editorial Reviews


Clearly demonstrating the mainstreaming, permanence, and legitimacy of digital cinema, which was once considered avant-garde, this book is a must read for students of film and new media.



Cinema in the Digital Age is mandatory reading for any media theorist.... [it] should remain on your desk between Barthes's Camera Lucida and Manovich's The Language of New Media.... Rombes pumps out an unabashed humanist manifesto, finding beauty in the dirt and noise that resist the cleanliness of digital culture.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Books goes over what digital means as it changes the "language" of the film. Starts of with the concept of sampling and error, I think he did a great job here. Middle gets a bit muddled (other the book would get a 5 stars). End pulls things together, especially with the integration of time (i.e. kind of like Eisenstien meets Einstein meets Tarkovsky in a digital virtual world). Well worth the read, and probably the most comprehensive view on how digital is changing the film experience on a virtual and physical level.
