The Story of Film: The Most Awesome Clip You'll See Today

Posted By on Wed, Feb 1, 2012 at 1:26 PM

Hat tip to Toby Leonard for passing along this article about Mark Cousins' 15-hour TV documentary The Story of Film, which gets a great write-up today from A.O. Scott in the Times in advance of its screening at New York's Museum of Modern Art.

We posted a link about the doc at the end of a post yesterday, but this rapid-fire montage of a century of cinema — whizzing past "The Great Train Robbery," Bresson's Pickpocket, I Am Cuba and Mean Streets, pausing to run Hitchcock's and Gus Van Sant's dueling Psycho shower scenes side by side — leaves us breathless ... and eager to see the whole thing. Watch, and don't blink.
