Odyssey of Images: a complete guide to The Story of Film


This is a visual directory to every film featured in Mark Cousins' 2011 documentary miniseries The Story of Film. I have screen-capped a frame featuring the title of each clip used, so let this serve as a resource both for those who've seen the doc (and want to revisit some of the titles), and those who haven't yet, and need some inspiration.

If you like this sort of thing, I've done it twice before, for Allan Fish's decades countdown and for my own video clip series. You also check out my previous posts on Cousins' opus (and the book it's based on). Beneath the proceeding pictures I've also included links to my own pieces on the films featured by Cousins. Incidentally, if you are a fan you can follow him on Twitter.

Woah... so many great images here. Great work Joel. This post is essential to anyone who has seen Cousin's doc.. I know I'll be coming back here often.

Thanks, it was both a hassle and a blast to create! I love Cousins' film so I hope it encourages those who haven't seen it yet to check it out. It's on Netflix now...
