1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die


Product Description
Product Details


Film buffs willing to challenge the claim made by Schneider (Understanding Film Genres) that they must see his selection of 1,001 international films are in for a shock. This heavy, boxlike, full-color guide to the best of the best truly represents the work of a century, culling its selection from all genres and nations. Ranging from Georges Melies's Le voyage dans la lune (1902) through Chicago (2002), the offerings include not only films that appear on every "must see" list but also those that should, such as Gun Crazy (1949) and The Evil Dead (1982). Instead of simply summarizing the plot, Schneider and his team of experts (mostly film academics) briefly explain why each film is a must see. Arranged chronologically, film entries include brief summations, credits, award information, and, more often than not, a film still. Director and film indexes conclude the volume. Schneider's book is perhaps most significant for film collections in its integration of genres in a seamless time line that places The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie side by side with Pink Flamingos and Enter the Dragon. Not everyone's must-see film is here (where, for instance, is Spetters?), but Schneider's choices are irrefutable. Highly recommended for all film, general public, and academic reference collections.-Anthony J. Adam, Prairie View A&M Univ. Lib., TX Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
