5.0 out of 5 stars the film stills
The perfect collection of Cindy Shermans works.
Before it would have been difficult to see all of these works but now they're all present in large full page photographs with no interuption.
Sherman herself has ordered the prints the way she thinks they should be seen, and with her own introduction to her work, it's almost too good to be true... but it is...

2.0 out of 5 stars good but not alot of info
I thought this book was great, in the way that it was collection of her photographs, all in one place. However, i didnt find it helpful in finding anything out about cindy sherman on the works created, the meanings behind them or her intentions. minimal information really

1.0 out of 5 stars The emperor's new photographs, 27 Jun. 2005
This review is from: Cindy Sherman: The Complete Untitled Film Stills (Hardcover)
Despite the fact that Art News, december 1999, included Cindy Sherman in a list of the ten top living artists, that's irrelevant from my viewpoint. Such considerations can only be of interest to those who view art works as some sort of groceries at their disposal in the supermarket down the road.
The "untitled film stills" are just a collection of "portraits" of Ms Sherman in disguise as a second rate steriotyped character removed from some movie.
The introduction itself, written by Ms Sherman herself, is nothing but a bunch of trivialities and a good example of the fact that most artists are unable to talk about their own work in an articulate and intelligent way.
Technically the pictures are poor and, naturally, one is led to wonder whether at the time Ms Sherman could dominate all the pratical sides of Photography. Moreover some are not even taken by her but by people who apparently had no particular qualifications. It's hardly surprising that some of the stills look very much like the pictures one finds in family albums.
Not wanting to be entirely negative, I would single out still #21 as interesting but I cannot bring myself to say more than that.
The principal interest I found in this book was the confirmation that the art world is full of "masterpieces" of which the future is uncertain, to say the least.
