  4. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film What Is Cinema?

    If not *1/2 - so many interviews of fantastic filmmakers, so much footage, and all of it just shows up how disorganized, scattershot, and tacky its putting-together is in this documentary. For very young beginners only, and even then, an entirely inexperienced young adult curious about cinema could do much better in many other ways.
