Great series on the history of film
I don't think the reviews I have read on this site have been particularly fair or helpful. This is very much a personal odyssey but it is none the poorer for that. Cousins is a passionate cineaste and enthusiastic guide. Some reviewers seem to object to his lilting Northern-Irish tones. Get over it! What we have here is a fascinating series, tracing the history of film from its sideshow beginnings through to the global entertainment industry and modern art form we know today. I particularly like the way Cousins chooses to analysise the films he features in the series. This analysis is always in-depth, enlightening and very well illustrated by his choice of clips. The series is a must-see for anyone studying film or who is serious about film.
