Description
Setting himself the singularly daunting task of writing a one-page essay on each of the 1,000 films that he has particularly liked—or in some cases, abhorred—London-born film critic David Thomson here gives us some half-million words of funny, vigorous, wayward prose in a guide as thick as a phonebook. Always unexpected, never repetitive, Thomson's reviews can be read consecutively—from Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein to Zabriskie Point—or dipped into over many years; his book is a masterclass on how to love films and how to write about them.

"A book to have on your reference shelf.... It's hardly been out of my hands for two weeks, and it's a constant source of fascination and pleasure to see what Thomson says about Rear Window or Don't Look Now.... It's like having the most film-literate pal you can imagine sitting beside you in a multiplex."—Independent (London)
