Praise For Film After Film: Or, What Became Of 21St Century Cinema?…
"A brilliant, patchwork statement about the future of the cinema—spoiler alert: there is a future—in the face of reports of its imminent demise...Hoberman’s book is a broadly accessible errand in the articulation of how we might imagine digital cinema to reflect twenty-first century culture."—Los Angeles Review of Books
"Spirited, thought-provoking and popping with fresh perspectives."—Wall Street Journal
"[Film After Film] does what Hoberman does best: use movies and movie culture as a prism for understanding political events—and vice versa."—Film Comment
“J. Hoberman is probably the most acute political analyst of cinema among
the medium’s regular commentators. You won’t find a closer reading of how films made in the first decade or so of the twenty-first century intermeshed with the issues of their day than this volume.” Nick James, Sight and Sound
“Hoberman wittily traces the interlocking of political reality and moviemaking fantasies, to often disturbing effect.” Financial Times
“A dense, fascinating assemblage … by turns jocular and brilliantly reflective.” Cineaste
