The Story of Film: An Odyssey Regie Mark Cousins

Kritiker-Rezensionen

It may be a bit of a no-brainer, but Cousins’s notion that films have advanced since the late 19th century, both artistically and commercially, as a result of variations in established schemas (artistic and commercial) is passably ingenious its simplicity.

Cousins is certainly entitled to his subtitle, especially after one considers that he’s trying to remap certain aspects of film criticism as well. But truthfully, his innocent odyssey is, for better and for worse, closer to a theme-park ride than it is to a critical or historical essay, placing it in quite a separate universe from Jean-Luc Godard’s Histoire(s) du ichar.
