Book review for Projectorhead (India)

(This is my first book review, so please be gentle. Plus, I have to admit that the transition from French to English wasn't the smoothest - my English sounds too international, and I hate that.)

At the time I wrote this I wasn't aware of OWS, it had just started, so I should add that the cinematic treatment of the Occupy movement also deserves attention in the near future. Actually, so far I haven't heard of any film projects that deal with the Arab Spring. The Occupy movement, on the other hand, seems to enjoy a promising cinematic future. A few links:

+ Occupy Cinema
+ Occupy Wall Street: The Movie; Will There Be A Definite Film of the Movement?
+ Occupy, the Movie

In 40 years from now (if I live that long), I would definitely be interested in reading a book on the cinematic legacy of the Occupy movement.
