“Perceptive, lively, and packed with verbal fireworks.” —The Independent

One of the world's most erudite and entertaining film critics on the state of cinema in the post-digital—and post-9/11—age. This witty and allusive book, in the style of classic film theorists/critics like André Bazin and Siegfried Kracauer, includes considerations of global cinema's most important figures and films, from Lars von Trier and Jia Zhangke to WALL-E, Avatar and Inception.


  • Spirited, thought-provoking and popping with fresh perspectives.
