From Library Journal
According to the author, some extremely successful films of the 1970s by major directors such as Woody Allen, Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, and Steven Spielberg were deficient because they could be categorized under one of four fallacies (television, literary, Hitchcockian, and Hawksian). Bernardoni illustrates his theory by dissecting several films, including numerous shot-by-shot analyses. This approach reveals that some directors are too enamored of bravura technique and perhaps have insufficient grasp of film aesthetics, but his arguments are sometimes unconvincing. Also, his blunt comments, though often perceptive, can be intrusive. An analysis of films he favors is included. This flawed but interesting study is recommended for academic film collections.
