This extremely passionate defense of the value and continued life of cinema makes for a very thought-provoking read. Some explanations beg for a slower more careful rereading, and you are rewarded with some enlightening ideas for doing so. Perhaps the biggest shift a student of film has to make to appreciate this work is presented early in the book, namely that Casetti is coming from a experiential perspective in his approaches and his definitions. This is not to ignore other aspects but rather to incorporate those other aspects (such as technology) into a new working understanding of cinema that keeps it alive at the same time that it transforms both itself and its history.

This is definitely a work that will reward multiple readings and is rich in references to stimulate further reading and thought.
