About The Book
In 1975, David Thomson published his Biographical 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 1,000 pages in one voiceâ€”that 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 that Thomson offers in response to the question he gets asked most oftenâ€”â€œWhat should I see?â€ 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 delight youâ€”and send you to your best movie rental service.
But he also probes the question: after one hundred years of film, which ones are the best, and why?
â€œHave You Seen … ?â€ suggests a true canon of cinema and one thatâ€™s almost completely accessible now, thanks to DVDs. This book 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 is a volume youâ€™ll want to return to again and again, like a dear but argumentative friend in the dark at the movies.
