    Why does the cinema have the power to move the heart, stimulate the mind, and dazzle the imagination? How did the art of film develop from its origins to the present day? This course covers the history and aesthetics of the movies. It traces the experiments and innovations that gave rise to the modern cinema, developing a vocabulary that helps explain the variety of choices filmmakers make when they construct shots and edit them together.

    Overall

    This book delivers what it advertises. It serves as a great history of film and is presented by a very intelligent lecturer who offers great insight into each film as well as show how it contributes to each period of film. However, the presentation has one fatal flaw: the lecturer continuously hard-swallows right into the microphone. This becomes so distracting, that it is hard to pay attention to the lectures after a while. Perhaps hire a professional voice man next time, or a least some recording etiquette training for the lecturer.
