Todd Berliner's Hollywood Incoherent is that rarest of books in the otherwise compromised field of film studies: rather than indulge in superficial talk about dated clothing or hair styles, and tired debates about rock versus disco, it actually deals with what many consider to be Hollwood's second golden age.
