I like this series a lot. The books are compact, but they contain a lot of strong analysis. And Phillip Drummond does an excellent job of presenting various "understandings" of the film: commercial, genre-based, "star-driven," "auteur-driven", political, feminist. The production stills are also very well-chosen.
