‘What Is Cinema?’ reviews

A- “A moving — in both senses of the word — meditation on the art of the cinema.” – James Verniere, The Boston Herald

“Workman, who has created opening sequences for 10 Academy Award shows, casts a spell by combining over 200 gorgeous film clips with filmmaker interviews, music and quotations to create dynamic and evocative montages that deepen the exploration of a question for which there is no definitive answer.” –Kaj Wilson, WBUR’s The Artery

“A compelling, enriching look at visionaries old and new, who continue to forge fascinating new paths in a medium that shows no signs of stagnating. Indeed, WHAT IS CINEMA? isn’t really about where film has been, but where it goes next.” – The Playlist

“An inspirational documentary about the power of the movies.” Tim Jackson, The Arts Fuse
