Well written and appropriately paced the book recounts a number of key causes of the downfall of the cinema in a balanced and measured manner. The real pleasure of this book is that it puts into words the feeling you get when you visit your local Multiplex to see a film you have been waiting to see for only to leave the cinema wishing you had not have bothered. Nothing to do with the quality of motion pictures but the way that actually viewing the content is made purely secondary to the sale of fast food.
A terrific light read all round.
A must-read for anyone with an interest in film, and for anyone who's sick of the multiplex experience.
A must read for reference and back story if you listen to the Five Live movie podcast.
