Insightful, intuitive, a little esoteric in prose not sure how many times the word onanistic is used But a plenty But an appropriately wry and dense scene by scene dissection of a movie that really does retain its power of visual and narrative provocation these nine decades later. The way to read this book is to sit with it while you are watching the film on a secondary viewing, pausing when necessary It is in the close analysis and interpretation that the book becomes the most interesting and it works really well as an accompanying guide.
