Solid overview and genre history of American film.
16 April 2019 | by phlbrq58See all my reviews

This is good work and it's the unfortunate that Low ratinga may keep appreciative viewers away. A neighbor's daughter was attending junior h.s. year summer advanced whatever and asked me for some particular films. In response I have her the stuff along with suggesting she look at this one series. A day later she told me her class was watching this as class curriculum. This is not academic disciplined stuff but insightful take on what makes u.s. Film the world dominant storytelling industry it became.
