Much of what you will find here is my attempt to understand the story of film, a invaluable resource that i recommend watching religiously to the point you can recite every film by heart is what really helped revive my passion for film.
The Story of Film: An Odyssey
Absolutely the most valuable revision to the completely biased history of film making. Available to stream on Netflix this documentary Addresses not only the Hollywood bubble for what it is, and allowing the world to be seen as equally if not more important in the history of film and much more. I watch it through and through at least once a month. which is consuming seeing as its a Series of 15 episodes equating to an hour a piece.
