   This book was peculiar. I was expecting something slightly ...
This book was not usual. When I read the title, I was expecting it to be more engaging. I read until the end to give it the benefit of the doubt. There were a lot of errors in the language. The contents of the book were lackluster.
   Great read
Excellent introduction book for film students. It was very helpful in the beginning stages of learning to make films.
   Applying the Sociological Imagination to Cinema (for film scholars who don't actually care what sociology is)
Attempts to discuss film from a sociological perspective without actually acknowledging the field of sociology. I appreciate where the guy is coming from, but why treat this social approach to film as a novelty when you could have used more rich material? C. Wright Mills created the sociological imagination fifty years ago. I bought the book as a required text in a film analysis course, but reading it made me wish the course was being taught by someone with a background in Sociology.
   Very informative
Every film we watch is referred to by this book. It breaks down what cinema really is and is very informative.
   Very informative, but...
I don't understand why people use fancy words to describe a very easy thing. The author knows what he's talking about and is a great writer. As an English- as- Second- Language student, this book uses so many complex words, that freaks me out.
   Too many big boy words
A lot of points are made with too many big boy words and simple concepts are not easy to understand. It would be nice if pictures were included.
