"Dedicated contributors provide knowledgeable reviews, recommended readings, a necessary glossary, and, as a final lighter touch, a general knowledge quiz on an important industry that takes in gauchos, tango, human-rights dramas, and groundbreaking experimental documentaries. Throughout the aim is excellence in diversity--not only with regard to epochs, films, directors, and styles but also by examining regional commentary, exile, and some inevitable Argentine icons, which results in a real tour de force. A must read for all interested in Argentina, film, and modern Latin American history."--Choice
