really liked it

At one time I owned a two volume set of Agee on Film. One was his criticism, the other is scripts. But yeah, Agee was probably one of the first great American film critic, who wrote for a national press. Always insightful, mostly inspirational (if you want to write on film), and sadly much missed in today's world of film writing.

David Really great, lively, often hilariously funny stuff. His review of Chaplin's Monsiuer Verdoux is a very important piece of film criticism.
