You’ll never read every book. There’s just too many of them. But film? It's only been around for a hundred years and change! With persistence and dedication, you could make it through every feature... right?
Maybe not. Call Mark Cousins’ The Story of Film your Plan B. He turned his best-selling book on cinema history into a 15-hour series for UK TV. (It’s subtitled “An Odyssey” for a reason.) Cousins’ keeps himself off-camera as he tracks the development of film from 1895 to today, determined to never allow ‘the story of film’ to default to ‘the story of Hollywood’.
You can see it with a screening each weeknight, or go for an epic viewing of the whole shebang over a single weekend.
$11-$15 single sessions, $50-$65 for all 15 episodes.
