    One thought on “Film Isms...: Understanding Cinema”

    1. I borrowed this book from the library, hoping to learn something about cinema, but it was utterly dissappointing. It reminded me of the papers I had to write when I was ten: I used to pick a subject like 'Herbs and Spices' and just added all the random bits of information that I could find until it had the right size, then added a lot of pictures to make it look better. Also like my first papers this book barely has any coherence; it's just listing of (sub)genres and that makes it really boring [...]

    2. Not exactly what I was expecting and rather incomplete. Each section has simply the basics-- literally nothing else. It was informative from a vocabulary perspective, but overall, it was not a book I will run back to time and time again for entertainment sake.

    3. Moc mi tahle kniha nesedla, čekala jsem trochu jiné rozvržení a náplň. Spíš pro 100% fandy odborníky, né pro mě jako laika, který má rád i mainstream.
