Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Story of Film: An Odyssey [5 DVDs] [UK Import] (DVD)
This collection is the culmination of a six year project between two men that sometimes worked together and sometimes alone around the world.
People looking for an objective film on the history of film will be disappointed or confused. I myself, a fascinated cinemaphiles, would have chosen quit a few different films. But I have a fraction of the skill of Mark Cousins. It is like using someone else's eyes.
Not only is it interesting to see a different view of film, but every now and then there is one film that I missed and looks like I must purchase to see what it is really about. I never heard of "Queen Kelly" (1929).I watched a lot of Carl Theodor Dreyer films but never thought of his fascination with "White" I was to intrigued in the films to notice. I watched "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" (1919) and never got the impression it had anything to do with the German State. Now waiting for a copy of "Kurutta ippêji" (1926) that is not in 3D. For people that gave up on the series by this time missed much as Mark Cousins is just getting off the ground.
Hang in there as he may diss your favorites but will bring up several films that you may have missed in life.
