There are lapses,  as well as an ideology that does not, really, make sense.  there are occasions when filmmakers are included,  here should not be. (Lars)  however, these are details against the larger picture -  that cinema is larger than movies.  movies are the standard issue -  which are fine,  but only part of the picture. The is Ozu, and Rule of the Game,  and Les Enfants du Paradis,  and even more obscure ones -  as well as the silent era.  one can forgive him his lapses -  such as M -  and his obsession with what happens on the screen being a bloody battle.  Why is that?  Because a lot of the things which are purveyed now are junk -  and their is a better world out there,  which Cousins introduces us to.  He is not the be-all and end-all,  by any means,  but this is a beginning point.
