really liked it
bookshelves: currently-reading
Recommended for: film nerds. people who are NOT in film school. nerds in general.

Gives a comprehensive overview of the political, technological and socio-economic factors influencing the founding and development of the film industry and industries in different countries. Explains how Hollywood has managed to inoculate the entire planet with its disease. Would be enjoyable reading if I didn't have to spit up names, dates and obscure terminology on an exam that resembles the masochistic brainchild of Alex Trebek and whoever invented Trival Pursuit, except it's all in Czech. If anyone wants to buy this for me and mail it to my address in Prague, I will host you in my sauna+jacuzzi-equipped flat unless you are: A. for Annoying or B. Trying to get into my pants.
