Cartoonist Edward Ross uses comics to illuminate the ideas behind our favorite movies. In Filmish, Ross's cartoon alter ego guides readers through the annals of cinematic history, introducing some of the strange and fascinating concepts at work in the movies. Each chapter focuses on a particular theme--the body, architecture, language--and explores an eclectic mix of cinematic triumphs, from A Tripto the Moon to Top Gun. Like other bestselling nonfiction graphic novels such as Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics, Filmish tackles serious issues--sexuality, race, censorship, propaganda--with authority and wit, throwing new light on some of the greatest films ever made.
