    Another good book that helps explain how film can be used to explore philosophical ideas Ms Litch explores concepts of idealism vs skepticism the value of personal identity and how we create ourselves by our choicesHowever while it has clear moments and even instances where a rich insight appears the book was written it seems for the philosophy graduate rather than the philosophy student At times it is very dense and a minor uibble it uses a very tiny serif font Garamond? that is very hard to read It's one thing to try to understand hard concepts; it's another to have to also try to read letters that swim across the page

    From what I remember this book felt like a hodgepodge of different films and different themes I think I would have enjoyed it if the writing was focused and perhaps with a different selection of films Not bad but not great
