"Perceptive, lively, and packed with verbal fireworks.” – The Independent
One of the world's most erudite and entertaining film critics on the state of cinema in the post-digital—and post-9/11—age. This witty and allusive book, in the style of classic film theorists/critics like André Bazin and Siegfried Kracauer, includes considerations of global cinema's most important figures and films, from Lars von Trier and Jia Zhangke to WALL-E, Avatar and Inception.


“[Hoberman's] criticism is perceptive, lively, and packed with verbal fireworks.”

“Hoberman’s prose shines without qualification, and the selections remind us that his tenure at the Voice was, simply put, one of the greatest ever by an American film critic.”

“Spirited, thought-provoking and popping with fresh perspectives.”

“Film After Film does what Hoberman does best: use movies and movie culture as a prism for understanding political events—and vice versa.”

“[A] fresh, bold, witty and authoritative book”
