    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.

    ESK says: "Educational! But ...the mike's too close!"
    "Great information/passion. Obnoxious mouth noises."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Understanding Movies: The Art and History of Film the most enjoyable?

    The information, really. The narrator seemed to be passionate about the material.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A lot of information presented with excitement in a digestible way.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by the narrator?

    Only if he can get a handle on his mouth noises. Or an editor cut them out.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Between the narrator and whoever produced or quality checked the audio, someone should have said something about the mouth noises and swallowing. Obnoxious and really distracting, which is a shame because the information and passion is there.
