This is the ultimate guide to all those movies you have to see before it's too late. Whether you want to know the background to a favourite movie, or you just want to know what to watch tonight, this book will prove indispensable.
Editor Stephen Jay Schneider has brought together 1,001 movies ranging from art house classics to westerns, written by leading film critics and journalists. Often witty, always informative, the reviews in this huge volume provide insightful and erudite guides to the best movies ever.
A dozen genres are covered: musicals, thrillers, westerns, science-fiction, comedy, war, horror, epics, film noir, art-house, romance, and social drama, arranged in chronological order. Older classics such as 'Some Like it Hot', 'Singin In The Rain', 'Casablanca', 'On The Waterfront', 'Psycho' and 'High Noon' jostle for position with contemporary classics such as 'Goodfellas', 'Saving Private Ryan', 'Braveheart' and 'Star Wars'.
This magnificent guide covers close to a century of memorable movies.
