Another Fine Mess
A History of American Film ComedyeBook - 2010
Charlie Chaplin. Buster Keaton. The Marx Brothers. Billy Wilder. Woody Allen. The Coen brothers. Where would the American film be without them? Yet the cinematic genre these artists represent--comedy--has perennially received short shrift from critics, film buffs, and the Academy Awards. Saul Austerlitz's "Another Fine Mess" is an attempt to right that wrong. Running the gamut of film history from "City Lights" to "Knocked Up," "Another Fine Mess" retells the story of American film from the perspective of its unwanted stepbrother--the comedy. In 30 long.
