Recomended readings - A Cinema of Loneliness
This wonderful book about the most important American filmmakers of the second half of the 20th century is a mandatory reading for every cinephile.
Its author, Robert Kolker, dissects the films of Arthur Penn, Oliver Stone, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Stanley Kubrick, and Robert Altman. His knowledge and his comprehension of their films is very inspiring for an aspiring film critic like your host here.
Even if sometimes I don't totally agree with his opinions, I like the way he presents and defend them.
A Cinema of Loneliness is a must read for every film enthusiast out there. It helps the moviegoer of today to understand how the contemporary movies are conceived.
