Constantine Santas encourages us to wonder why critics have routinely dismissed the epic film. In The Epic in Film, Santas argues that 'blockbuster' and 'artistic' are not mutually exclusive terms and that epic film is an inherently profound genre in its ability to tap into a nation's dreams and fears. Whether you love Gone with the Wind or hate Troy, find Akira Kurosawa's films brilliant or marvel over the Matrix trilogy, film buffs will want to read this book.
