I now have new perspective on how cinematography, editing, color scheme, costume etc. are carefully planned and help influence and reinforce the themes of a movie. Great case-studies of regional cinemas, the filmography of David Lynch, Johnny Depp's position as a "star" and much more. A little dense and verbose at times, but I guess that comes with the territory. The author Andrew Dix, has scattered numerous wry and witty observations which help keep you smiling as you read.
