Extremely dense. Very, very good.

the spielberg chapter is best, its not just about spielberg, but the entire era of commercial film. he talks about the invulnerable elasticity of rambos body. goodfellas came on tv during thanksgiving while i finished reading the scorsese chapter. that was cool. violence in goodfellas is exuberant, but the violence in casino is redemptive, you feel it, its what you have to see as penance for loving goodfellas. Kubrick. i saw all kubricks movies when he died, when i was a teen, so ill never understand them. in this ed, he deleted the chapter on coppola. which i would have liked to read. im sure i can find it somewhere.

he should have written more on stone. and i hate altman. mash is the most misogynistic film ive ever seen. its a great book.

When I started reading about cinematic criticism Kolker's book (the first edition from the 70S) was among the most informative. At the time I worked for an Arabic Literary journal and I was assigned the translation of the Bonnie and Clyde section. I was fascinated by the profound philosophical and psychological depth of the writer when interpreting picture and action that otherwise seemed unremarkable for the regular viewer. I discovered through the writer's journey in modern American cinema the complexity of the cinematic language and the extensive symbolism conveyed in masterful works like the Godfather I and II and 2001 A Space Odyssey. This great book would be a remarkable source for any person interested in serious movie making, especially for the fans of Kubrick, Coppola and Scorsese.

Worth reading for the Kubrick chapter alone, this book considers the work of our finest directors and contrasts them with the conservatism and anti-intellectualism of 1980s cinema. Moreover, the author discusses community, alienation, dehumanization, and loneliness, all from a fresh, unpretentious standpoint.

I had a hard time staying interested when reading this book. The chapters are too long and dense. This book would be best used as a reference, not for enjoyment and learning.

A paradigm of intelligent film criticism. Kolker's astute and subtle formal analysis of the films puts many other so-called critics to shame, and his discussions of the political implications of cinematic form and style are excellent. It is a serious book about movies, and his arguments and insights need to be thought about and struggled with- they are not a meant to be easily digested.
