To be honest I read two of the three parts of this book. I believe the last third is comprised of the actual movie reviews that are edited or reviewed in the first two sections and I never saw one of the films reviewed in that section. The first section of this work is a summary of the film theory that the critic uses and the second section is a collection of his film reviews from the first decade of this millennium. His theory and his reviews are very sociopolitical and quite focused on the Iraq war. I found the reviews where they referred to movies that I had watched were well worth the time to read. The theory as most film theory leaves me in a bemused shock. Film as object or as new social real are to me quite slippery thoughts.

I'm glad to have read the book. The essays remind me that the USA has, as it did in Vietnam, created another world tragedy that the country will have difficulty addressing. ( )
