5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing movies, 13 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To see these four films is to be given a deeper understanding of how film has developed over the last fifty years but also to have a sense of what has been lost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scorsese's guide to movie making and Italy, 14 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Martin Scorsese manages to build an introduction and overview of the post war Italian cinema that became the game changing Nero-realism. Both enlightening and gripping.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful discovery, 14 Jun 2013

Intelligence, humour and limpid simplicity that allows complexity to shine through - how did I not know about her until she won the Man Booker International prize

5.0 out of 5 stars Quietly devastating, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seven Years (Kindle Edition)
Peter Stamm builds with patience and understating accuracy. Class, gender and character are all under the microscope of his apparently simple language. There is not a question of liking or sympathising with any of the characters as they are revealed in a reality which seems beyond those terms.

4.0 out of 5 stars How to undo a way of thinking, 17 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The adbuster's method of text and image - very striking and effective - builds up the case for thinking how we might begin to rethink the approach to economics that has dominated the last forty years towards something more nuanced and inclusive.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to write a book!, 17 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Umbrella (Kindle Edition)
I loved the layers of text, the interleaving of the various stands of time and narrative. And I was pleasantly surprised to find how easily it read because flicking through the pages one's heart might sink at such uninterrupted text.
