"This book is a film lover's dream. It chronicles the entire history of cinema, and this updated edition includes new movies..."
"It's a perfect distraction for the film buff trying to get you to sit through that 14-hour Terrence Malick movie."
Connie Ogle, The Miami Herald
"I'm very pleased that there appears to be no discrimination over genre or the country of origin. The collection of films here is appropriate for any true connoisseur of the medium. For the most part, the writers are knowledgeable about their subject and provide just enough about each film to whet our appetite, which is the true purpose of the volume, not that I need much pushing to watch more movies. There are rare gems here that will have me searching the rare video lists out there to check out. The book is an excellent value. It's heavy and substantial, clocking in at nearly 1000 pages. For each movie you'll get vital cast and crew information as well as Oscar nominations. English translations are provided for foreign films. Nearly ever film sports at least one photograph. I really do think this is one of those books that belong on every serious videophile's reference shelf, and I know that it will enhance mine for years to come. Consider it required reading from this course on filmography. There are genre-specific titles that I hope to be able to share with you in the future. The new edition editor is Ian Haydn Smith, and he's literally throwing down the gauntlet for you to choose your own movies to die for."
