Would you try another book from Damian Cox and Michael P. Levine and/or Allen O'Reilly?
Yes. .if it were narrated by someone else
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Allen O'Reilly?
The narration is so fast , so Manic as to make it incomprehensible
Could you see Thinking Through Film being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Yes but with a different narrator and a slower pace. This narration is ridiculous and so fast the ideas begin to seem like gibberish.
Any additional comments?
I listen to a lot of audiobooks. This was the worst in terms of speed.

Enjoyed this exploration of film and philosophy. I normally listen on 1.25 speed which may be a little too fast for this book as the voice actor seemed to be in a hurry, even without the extra speed.
The book talks about different schools of philosophy through about eight different movies or so, most of which I had seen. Philosophical books are much more enjoyable when philosophy is discussed and not preached. Cinephiles and nouveaux philosophers should enjoy this alike.
I almost feel this book warrants multiple readings to absorb all the details.
