Book Summary

New Yorker film critic David Denby considers the future of America's troubled movie industry. He explores film as both an art and a business, tackling topics from the "fandom" phenomenon and the work of critics James Agee and Pauline Kael to the global marketplace's increasing demands for spectacle and digitalization.
