Movie Wars by Jonathan Rosenbaum
Book DescriptionQuestioning the assumptions that govern our culture, this book focuses on one medium -- the movies. In particular, it examines how movies are packaged, distributed, and promoted, exposing industry secrets such as how Miramax often buys distribution rights to movies it then fails to distribute, presumably to make sure its competitors don't get them. The book shows, for the first time, how the corporate ownership of movie theatres defies antitrust laws and precedents stretching back over 50 years. While the average American can usually find a book or record that has not been endorsed by the mainstream media, when it comes to movies, consumers are powerless against what Rosenbaum calls 'the media-industrial complex'.

Books By Author Jonathan Rosenbaum
Goodbye Cinema, Hello Cinephilia, Paperback (September 2010)
For film critic Rosenbaum, there is no high or low cinema, only more interesting or less interesting films. This book gathers together over fifty examples of Rosenbaum's criticism from the past four decades, each of which demonstrates his passion for the way we view movies, as well as how we write about them.
Essential Cinema, Paperback (August 2008)
A cogent and provocative argument about the art of film, Essential Cinema is a fiercely independent reference book of must-see movies for film lovers everywhere.
Discovering Orson Welles, Paperback (May 2007)
Collects a film critic's writings on Orson Welles - some thirty-five years of them - and makes a case for the seriousness of his work, illuminating both Welles the artist and Welles the man.
Movie Mutations, Paperback (October 2003)» View all books by Jonathan Rosenbaum
In contrast to any talk of "the death of the cinema", this title pronounces the art form alive and well, and still developing in new and unforeseen directions. Using transnational discussions and debates, it shows why the idea of cinephilia is just as relevant today as it ever was.
