    The history of international cinema is now available in a concise, conveniently sized, and affordable volume. Succinct yet comprehensive, A Short History of Film provides an accessible overview of the major movements, directors, studios, and genres from the 1880s to the present.

    Alan says: "A fascinating textbook - (is that possible?)"

    Story
    What would have made A Short History of Film better?

    More. There are some parts that feel like bad cliff notes, especially near the end. Since I am a filmmaker I might be a bit biased or whatever, and I could image if I were young and this was my first exposure to world cinema it would be exciting, but there is only the bare bones of history here. It's cool to have a dance through time, but near the end, it felt like the authors were rushing to finish.


    What was most disappointing about Wheeler Winston Dixon and Gwendolyn Audrey Foster ’s story?

    See above.


    What three words best describe Walter Dixon’s voice?

    Simple. Not a bad voice, just a very by the book voice. The lack of material might be to blame.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Short History of Film?

    It's not the cutting, it's what's not there.
