Philip Kemp, Total Film Nowell-Smith's packed an astounding amount into 120-page, pocket-sized book. Not just a capsule history of movies, but also summaries of technological, cultural and ideological developments, plus reflections on the current multimedia revolution. There's even room for notes on further reading. Ideal for first-year students; but even well versed will find useful insights.
Chris Green, Suffolk Norfolk Life Never be fooled by the title: there may only be 100 pages of narrative, and you can easily fit the book into a pocket, but packed into that is a wealth of detail Geoffrey Nowell-Smith worked for many years at the British Film Institute, and therefore writes with the benefit of insider access to archive footage and documentary records... Definitely a must read for [those] who belong to film groups
