5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, readable and highly enjoyable, 5 Sept. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Hollywood Cinema: An Introduction (Paperback)
A very comprehensive, digestible introduction to the criticism of Hollywood cinema and cinema as a whole. Maltby manages to create an absorbing and detailed analysis of Hollywood cinema without succumbing to the use of pomposity or rhetoric to dress up the study of film unnecessarily. While justifying Hollywood cinema as an art form every bit worthy of study and analysis, Maltby never looses sight of what cinema (particularly Hollywood cinema) is meant to be: entertainment. It is clear, readable and, most importantly, highly enjoyable. Well researched and with excellent references and notes. If there is a drawback, it is only that it is designed and deserves to be read cover to cover, and therefore it is not ideal as a quick reference book or as a dip-in dip-out read.
