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.
It was a really brief overview of film. Definitely could've used more detail. The brevity of the book tended to overlook a lot of (in my opinion) really important figures and movements in film. But it had a lot of nice pictures and some interesting facts here and there.
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.
