This is more of a fun facts type of book than a detailed history of film. However it is fairly comprehensive and covers some obscure film movements, world and independent cinema. And it lays everything out in chronological order which I like. A good book to flick through now and again to discover a new director or film.
Kuşe kağıt, okuması ve incelemesi çok zevkli.Film severler için güzel bir başvuru kitabı, film kolikler içinse biraz sanki daha ayrıntılı olabilirmiş hissiyatında bir kitap.
Fun, comprehensive, but still compact, history of film. What I liked about this book is that it really incorporated all cinema from around the world.
