Veteran interviewer Robert Birnbaum speaks with film critic David Thomson over at the Morning News.
“And as you know movie people are not overly critical of their own passion. It’s a hot bath they want to jump into and stay there. This is a book that in many ways raises questions and worries. About the overall achievement and culture of film. It asks the question, ‘Is it really an art? Are we doing it justice when we treat it as an art? Or isn’t it something more complicated and a bit less than art?'”
