More on Book #1

Finished the first book in the 2013 challenge, Not Hollywood. It was good, though nothing earth-shattering, and nothing that anyone who’s spent some time watching independent films and reading about them in Film Comment and similar publications didn’t already gather. Neat approach, though, using a qualitative ethnographic study to cast a net over the whole film culture, rather than taking a film theory approach and thus necessarily be looking at the scene from the inside. I hesitate to say any more until the review is published in ForeWord Magazine.

Next up: Invisible Jukebox, ed. Tony Herrington  Some Other Kind of Mission by Lisa Jarnot.
