Think that films like Mannequin on the Move and Megashark Versus Giant Octopus are devoid of artistic value? Think again. True Love is like the Loch Ness Monster and other lessons I learnt from film is a collection of essays detailing important moral messages from the last century (and a bit) of cinema.
This debut book from film editor and writer Helen Cox includes freshly-edited versions of the author's best columns and several brand new pieces especially written for the second edition of this sell-out book. Cox guides the reader through the pivotal lessons to be learnt from forgotten films and films best forgotten in an informative and entertaining fashion. Learn why The Bride of Frankenstein is a feminist icon, how DVD destroyed the family unit and why being Katherine Heigl isn't as easy as it looks.
