It`s the movies that have really been running things in America ever since they were invented. They show you what to do, how to do it, when to do it, how to feel about it, and how to look how you feel about it

Mark Cousins pays homage to our shared love of cinema in his new documentary, The Story of Film: An Odyssey, which will be screened at the MoMA beginning tomorrow. It features film clips, commentary, as well as interviews with film-makers such as Baz Luhrmann and Gus Van Sant. Those of you with a lot of time on your hands are in luck because she boasts a run-time of 900 minutes. The film will be screened in a series 15 installments over 16 days, or if you’re feeling ambitious it can be seen in two 7.5-hour installments on Saturdays and Sundays.

The Story of Film: An Odyssey begins February 1 and will run through February 16.
