Terra at the Movies


OSU English professor Jon Lewis loves movies and knows the biz. In the fall issue of Terra, he’ll share his observations about the power of Hollywood and the health of film. See a brief Powell’s Books synopsis of Jon’s   book, American Film, A History.


Being a film school graduate I’ve read a lot of books about hollywood. My film teacher had all her published books as mandatory purchases for her class…. errrrr… okay…..

But I’m giving this one cred because of the choice of the cover alone. Raging Bull is one of the best examples of a great film ever made. It’s an example of film making at it’s best. It isn’t the best movie ever made but it’s a damn good one!
