Have You Seen . . . ?: A Personal Introduction to 1,000 Films by David Thomson

In 1975, David Thomson published hisBiographical Dictionary of Film,and few film books have enjoyed better press or such steady sales. Now, thirty-three years later, we have the companion volume, a second book, of more than a thousand pages in one voicethat of our most provocative contemporary film critic and historian. Juxtaposing the fanciful and the fabulous, the old favorites and the forgotten, this sweeping collection presents the films David Thomson offers in response to the question he gets most oftenWhat should I see? This new book is a generous history of film and an enticing critical appraisal written with as much humor and passion as historical knowledge. Not content to choose his own top films (though they are here), Thomson has created a list that will surprise and delightand send you to your best movie rental service. But within it, he probes the question: after one hundred years of films, which ones are the best, and why? Have You Seen . . . ?suggests a true canon of cinema and one thats accessible now thanks to DVD. This is a must for anyone who loves the silver screen: the perfect confection to dip into at any point for a taste of controversy, little-known facts, and ideas about what to see. This too is a volume youll want to return to again and again, like a dear but argumentative friend in the dark at the movies.
