Reviews

"Intimacy is rarely a word connected to published academic work, and yet I can't think of a better word to distinguish MacDonald's thoroughly researched and rigorously annotated tome from all previous books I've reviewed on these pages."--Cynthia Close"Documentary" (11/01/2013)
"Inestimable addition to the film-studies canon." 10 Best Film-Studies Books of 2013.-- (12/20/2013)
"This book does justice to a significant and extensive body of documentary filmmaking."--Critical Inquiry (03/01/2016)
"MacDonald's connection between the ethnographic and the personal documentary is a fitting and eloquent book topic that draws attention to the blurring of lines between filmic categories and styles."--Jump Cut (11/01/2016)
