REEL CHANGE: THE CHANGING NATURE OF HOLLYWOOD, HOLLYWOOD MOVIES, AND THE PEOPLE WHO GO SEE THEM by Bill Mesce, Jr.

Long before they were a profession, the movies were a passion for Bill Mesce, first cultivated back during the days when he and his childhood friends spent Saturday afternoons at the neighborhood movie house. He has been studying movies, writing about movies, even writing a few himself ever since. Culled from his column at award-winning e-zine Sound on Sight, these essays run from industry observations to personal ruminations; from the academically analytical to the nostalgic. They also, piece by piece, tell the overarching story of the great changes in the American motion picture, from the Old Hollywood “dream factories” churning out disposable weekly fare, to the explosion of personal expression during the 1960s/1970s, to the monopolization of the multiplex by big-budget blockbusters.
