    DescriptionCinema has undergone huge changes in the last decade: Asian filmmaking has been making the running; the ne'er do well genre, documentary, has broken through; digitalization and DVD has revived film history and is revolutionizing projection; world cinema has shifted in the direction of the real and the visually grainy; and animation has become more dominant that any time since Disney. Month by month, in the acclaimed journal "Prospect ," critic and filmmaker Mark Cousins has charted and contextualized these changes. Writing from Britain, Europe, Iran, India and Mexico, he has looked at the social trends and aesthetic implications of modern cinema's shifting sands. "Widescreen: Watching. Real. People. Elsewhere" is the result; a skeptical, passionate, eye-witness account of film today, argued originally and written with panache.

    Review quote
    A deeply felt, surprisingly personal book and there is something thought-provoking to be found on every page.--Jon Barnes"Times Literary Supplement" (01/01/0001)
