By J. Montoto on December 14, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book reviews the major works of the movement and the importance of their style and political motivation. Looking at today's domestic film industry, where a crazed celebrity adoration mentality trumps form and content, this book will clearly make you understand the need to view these fine films and hope for a re-thinking of our cinematic culture.
