Reviews - What do customers think about Italian Cinema: Arthouse to Exploitation (Pocket Essential series)?

Not worth the money...  Sep 9, 2007
Film overview books can be very subjective. Everyone has their own favorites. And unfortunately, Mr. Forshaw's little guide is filled with films he feels best represent the Italian cinematic experience.

While his chapters on neorealism read like a person who knows what they are talking about, when it comes to genre cinema such as the giallo and the spaghetti western, it's a rush job. When talking about Argento one can almost see the author nervously twitch.

The worst of the three pocket guides I've purchased.
