[a very nice clean book, virtually as new, with just minimal traces of wear to both book and jacket]. This "thought-provoking" book takes on questions such as "What is film? Why are movies important? [and] Why do we care about them in the way we do?" The author "looks closely at these and other questions concerning America's most popular art and the perceptions we make of, by, and through it. [His] explorations of some of Hollywood's stars, directors, and most famous films -- as well as his fresh look at Godard, Bergman, and other great European directors -- will be of lasting interest to movie-viewers and intelligent people of all ages."
