Man, this sure sounds like crap. Drink, give us a review and save the rest of us a lot of time.

Yes, it is a piece of crap.

Not commie like I assumed. But one of these "scholarly works" that are impossible to read. Does anyone (other than some nerdy film professor) actually have the ability to read and enjoy these things?

Be glad I wasted my time and money on this so you don't have to.

I avoid these academic treatises like the plague.
Ironically, Christopher Fraylings first book was an academic work ( his PHD iirc). But, he soon ditched academia, thankfully!

The De Fornari book has got 700 photographs and other material which might prove to be interesting, though it was criticized for its small format.
