Independent films are becoming ever more popular, as many movie fans tire of mainstream movie formulas such as sequels, comic book characters, explosions, car chases, romantic comedies and the like. This book explores the world of indie, low-budget and other less mainstream movies. It includes reviews of specific movies, explorations of notable actors and directors as well as essays on recurring themes and genres found in independent films.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Interesting survey of some independent film directors and films. Worth the low price. Reminded me about a lot of films I'd forgotten about. Enjoyed it as a survey although not super in-depth. And, the recording is full of errors. Every few minutes there is a hard cut in the middle of a word as though this was spliced together out of tape by an amateur, and it seems like there are words or sentences cut out. I don't know how this got past QC.
What about Jessie Goodwin’s performance did you like?
The performance is perfectly listenable, although marred by the jarring recording/edit errors.
