The Good, The Bad and The Multiplex

"The book’s accessibility is the key to its success. This isn’t a book for hardened film snobs, neither is it an ‘idiot’s guide’ to cinema."

Infuriated with the mundane, blockbuster heavy listings of your local cinema? Resent paying over the odds to sit in a stale, soulless auditorium, watching an oversized digital projection whilst eating extortionately priced junk food? Then you’ll find yourself right at home with The Good, The Bad and The Multiplex, the new book (and podium from which to preach all that is wrong with modern day cinema) by outspoken film critic Mark Kermode.

The Good, The Bad And The Multiplex will feel like common ground to those familiar with Simon Mayo and Mark Kermode’s weekly Radio Five film show, fleshing out the numerous arguments which present themselves, with the only difference being that there’s no calming influence to prevent these feelings of disenfranchisement sky rocketing into full blown rants – albeit deeply informed and impassioned rants.
