A ground-breaking guide that focuses on a series of moments, from seventy-two films across a 100-year-plus span — which readers will experience in beautifully reproduced imagery. The first fully illustrated work by film writer David Thomson, this is an indispensable counterpart to both his classic Biographical Dictionary of Film and his lauded recent history, The Big Screen. Thomson has organized his chapters by examining moments in the films Pandora’s Box, M, Bringing up Baby, The Shop Around the Corner, The Night of the Hunter, The Exterminating Angel, When Harry Met Sally, Bonnie and Clyde, and many others, taking readers on an unprecedented visual tour. Other moments range from a set of Eadweard Muybridge’s pioneering photographs, to sequences in films from the classic—Citizen Kane, Sunset Boulevard, The Red Shoes—to the unexpected—The Piano Teacher, Burn After Reading. The excitement of these dynamic visuals will be matched only by the discussion it incites in film circles.
