HASH(0x9cdf045c) out of 5 stars An OK Book May 4 2007
By James D. Crabtree - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The overview of Egyptian movies is good, and it discusses some of the classic movies produced by Egypt's moviemakers but it never really produces a "feel" for these movies. The bios of key people in the industry is helpful, but overall it just gives you a feel that it has a lack of substance. It might make a good companion book if studying the genre from the outside.
