The Story of Film: An Odyssey reviews

If you have an interest in the history of international cinema and don't expect to be spoon-fed then "The Story of Film:An Odyssey" is excellent. Sure, it is Mark Cousins' personal view and he does jump around quite a bit but that doesn't detract from either the entertainment value or the interesting and valuable information in the series.Of course, if you have no knowledge of the films / directors he is talking about then it no doubt will be rather difficult to follow. The four episodes I have seen have contained a lot of interesting information on the history of world cinema, including the production / finance side, and you can learn about some old classics which I can vaguely remember seeing at film festivals in the 60's and 70's. Highly recommended. Update : I have now watched the complete series of "The Story of Film" and it is a classic, a great resource for those interested in world cinema and thoroughly entertaining to boot.

Himself - Presenter: A lie to tell the truth. This is film making. The art of making us feel that we're there.
Himself - Presenter: Hollywood's cinema, the bauble, is brilliant at the anticipation of seeing. The desire to see. The pleasure of seeing.
Himself - Presenter: Godard said that the story of film is about boys filming girls, and about men worrying about mortality and women not doing so.
Himself - Presenter: [about Brigitte Bardot] She brought more money to the French economy than the motor car manufacturer, Renault.
