Weimar Cinema: An Essential Guide

There is a new book out called Weimar Cinema: An Essential Guide to Classic Films of the Era, by Noah Isenberg. This 368 page book is published by Columbia University Press. Besides its rather striking cover.

What caught my attention is the lengthy chapter by Margaret McCarthy entitled "Surface Sheen and Charged Bodies: Louise Brooks as Lulu in Pandora's Box (1929)." I haven't had time to sit down and really read this dense essay, but I hope to as I expect to have a lot of time on my hands sometime soon. Have any readers of this blog had a chance to look at this book?
