  1. :

    Pepperman takes a great approach. He presents the reader a track to further film exploration. Many of the films selected amount to some of my favorites. Others I’ve not heard of nor seen. I like when a book takes me to, or shows me, new things.

  2. :

This book may become to film students what Gray’s Anatomy is to art students. “If form and content matter, this book is required reading!
