DVD: The Story of Film: An Odyssey


Even more impressive than the numbers – six years in the making; 11 decades covered; more than 1,000 film clips; 15 hours of interviews, poetically personal reveries and incisive commentary – is the excitement Mark Cousins' paean to the history of celluloid engenders in viewers to find (or re-find) the movies he waxes lyrical about.

Neither is this simply a history of Hollywood; this is a truly global, stunning and richly rewarding magnum opus.
