The series tries to provide a comprehensive look at cinema, including places that have less interesting film histories. Mark Cousins focuses a little too much on the careers of less important filmmakers, like Baz Luhrmann, who he gets to interview, instead of more important directors. This is a good introduction to cinema.

This is an ongoing French documentary series about film directors.

Most mainstream moviegoers tend to think that film criticism is basically a matter of telling you which movies you should see, not trying to direct or redirect how you think about them. There’s a little in this documentary that contradicts this premise, but not a lot.

That said, this movie is a lot of fun. And you should see it. - Jonathan Rosenbaum

One of the best essay films ever made on a cinematic subject... adroitly combines biography, history, film theory, and philosophical reflection. Muybridge's photographic studies of animal locomotion in the 1870s were a major forerunner of movies. - Jonathan Rosenbaum
