Amazingly Superficial
19 August 2019 | by film_poster_fanSee all my reviews

I have seen all six episodes and, while none of the previous ones were very good, this sadly was the worst. It began poorly by dismissing the silent era of films in a one minute discussion and then moving on to the films of the 1930s through the 1950s. Two hours for three decades of countless classics? When the documentary feels the need to identify actors like Humphrey Bogart and Clark Gable, you feel your intelligence being insulted. Films like Citizen Kane, Casablanca, and The Searchers were discussed in a total of five minutes, perhaps. Like the the other episodes, this seems very superficial and uninformative.
