Phil Hall's newest book gives an intricate look at the independent film starting from it's silent days to the present. It touches on all it's aspects, as narrative, race, yiddish, educational, industrial and documentary, and perhaps some that fit into no category. Hall's witty and engaging writing keep the subject from becoming too dryly academic, and even though I have a good fundamental knowledge of the history of film, I learned new and fascinating details. He also rightly salutes the new age of indie digital movie makers, although still underground and not known to the general public, who have arrived at a new technological age where they don't have to mortgage the house to make a movie. Anyone interested in independent film history then and now should enjoy this book.

The book covers the roots of independent cinema, from the first films in the late 1890s, through an extensive journey into the silent era, to the later underground film movement, non-theatrical productions, and digital cinema, and then springboards into a look into future production possibilities. Worthy of special mention are the lengthy biographical profiles of the men (and women!) independent producers and directors through the years. The author has done an admirable job with his research.

For more than forty years I have studied film history. So when I first picked up Phil Hall's book, The History of Independent Cinema, I figured I would be traversing some highly familiar territory. It was obviously familiar to Mr. Hall, but not to me. Chapter after chapter presented revelations that I found new and fascinating. In particular, I was engrossed by the remarkable sacrifice of the filmmakers behind the race films of the twenties and thirties; I was intrigued by the Underground movement, which began with The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari in 1920; I was amused by the topics covered in the non-theatrical films of the fifties and sixties; and, finally, I was curious about the future of Independent Cinema--a subject that is discussed at some length in the epilogue. I really learned something from this book. And thanks to Phil Hall's entertaining writing style, I had a good time doing so.
