If you like movies and admire Graham Greene, this 700 pager is a powerhouse. Discussing "The Third Man," and some confabs w David O Selznick, who had a small financial interest, GG and dir Carol Reed, out of contractual politeness, were required to give ear to DOS: "Listen, boys, who the hell is going to a film with that title?" "It's easily remembered," says GG.

Graham Greene was one of the top novelists of the 20th century and probably would have won the Nobel Prize for Literature if he had not written so many detective and spy novels Those novels are first class works in their genre surpassing the label of what Henry James called trivial fiction and actually being literature in their own right. I have a strong admiration for Greene thenovelist and knew of his interest in film so I purchased this book to see what kind a film writer he is I think Greene is an excellent film writer He has excellent command of the language is knowledgable about the technical aspects of film and has strong opinions on films he strongly admires and disdains. He is insightful in his general essays as well as his criticism . The strongest testament I have to Greene as a film critic is his view of Hitchcock. I think Hitchcock is a great director and Greene does not His distinction between a director who is an artist and onewho is a mere technical genius was instructive to me and his logical thinking along those lines led me to reevaluate Hitchcock for myself I still have a much higher view of Hitchcock than Greene did but I can see why Greene has his view and why there are those who agree with him I recommend this book to any serious film student of person interested in film history and to any thoughtful filmgoer Greenewas a critic in the mid to late 1930's andthen stopped doing it andhe reviewed mostly British films so you will know very few of the movies he critiques but his clarity of aesthetic principle can be applied to any movie He disdains sentimentality and he wants deep realism in the emotions of the characters in the films he watches He disdains artsy gimmickry or using special effects to hide dramaturgical flaws in a film He most despises emotional and intellectual manipulation of the audience by gimmickry such as long drawn out closeups or set pieces that are visually striking but have no point except to awe or shock an audience. I cannot recommend this book more highly

Textbook for class. I never really read it, but having it made me feel like I was being a good student. Got an A in the class through pure force of will.

Graham Greene writes reviews with the authority of someone who has actually written novels and films and his insights are more helpful than a dozen books on screenwriting.

Graham Greene is always tops. This collection of his
film reviews from '30s is quite brilliant. A critic must
first entertain, he wrote. Pls send this advisory to all
the bores who are writing online and (daily) dinky-inkys.
And writing 1500 sleep-inducing words.

This item has remained "unavailable" on the Kindle for quite some time even though a price is quoted, Why????????????????????? My understanding is that Greene's film writing is quite good, but I simply want to buy it on the Kindle but it always says "not currently available" and I simply do not understand what this means.

This book -- all 800 or so pages -- is a goldmine for Greene fans. It's chock full of reviews, essays, articles, and letters, and it shows Mr Greene at his wittiest. Some of the reviews are absolutely scathing, and his insight into the film business is enlightening. Buy it.
