Critic Reviews for The Story Of Film: An Odyssey

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (1)

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

    May 16, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • ... an unconventional, expansive, and almost exhaustive approach to the history of cinema.

    August 13, 2016 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    March 30, 2014 | Rating: D | Full Review…
  • 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.

    August 1, 2012 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • One of the most staggeringly comprehensive cinematic histories ever told.

    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.
