  • Bauble vs. Innovation

    9.0
    Cousins repeatedly denigrates Hollywood entertainment films by calling them only baubles. On the other hand, he avoids the western-centric view of film history that many film history books and programs fall into. This program hops around the globe searching for innovation in film-making. Cousins interviews tons of people who participated in the creation of cinematic art. As my wife pointed out, Cousins' lilting Irish voice does often sound like it is asking a question, yet he makes many definitive statements about the interpretations and meanings of hundreds of films through the advancing decades.
