Critic Reviews for The Story Of Film: An Odyssey

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

It's wildly ambitious, often extremely good, occasionally maddening, and always stimulating.

... an unconventional, expansive, and almost exhaustive approach to the history of cinema.

Cousins's insanely repetitive delivery of every sentence sadly renders the documentary unwatchable - or at least unlistenable. Cousins has the annoying habit of ending every phrase like a question. Torturous.

Like Martin Scorsese's "A Personal Journey Through American Cinema" and "My Voyage to Italy," it's a tour through a museum with a deeply passionate and engaging guide.

One of the most staggeringly comprehensive cinematic histories ever told.

Audience Reviews for The Story Of Film: An Odyssey

½

Mark Cousins knows a lot about Cinema and did an impressive research, but unfortunately his voice inflection makes it a torture to listen to him for 15 hours, while his love for hyperboles weakens the material and his inferences are usually arbitrary and absurd.
