There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
This book has a good selection of stills, some of which I had not seen before, and it is well written. The synopses and reviews of the 319 films are concise and accurate, but I think they are a bit too concise for a book at this price. I was hoping for a more detailed review and some information about the films that I had not read elsewhere. This was rarely the case.
Unless you are a newcomer, and want a book that gives a reasonable introduction to the subject, you won't learn much from this book that you don't already know.
The star rating is a bit restrictive - I would say 4 stars for the newcomer and only 2 for someone looking to increase their knowledge, an average of 3 stars.
