5.0 out of 5 stars Arthouse to Exploitation, 13 Feb 2006
This review is from: Italian Cinema: Arthouse to Exploitation (Pocket Essentials) (Paperback)
For anyone even mildly interested in Italian cinema this book is a great read.
After a short chapter on the history and deveopment of the industry from 1905, the author focuses on the main genres with particular emphasis on sex and horror movies!
All the important Italian directors, such as Fellini, Antonioni and Visconti, are discussed as well as some lesser ones hardly known to me.
I particularly enjoyed the concise descriptions, plots and background information of the many films discussed, and the way the author brings them to life with his obvious knowledge and enthusiasm of his subject.
Well worth its modest price.
