The Greatest Movies Ever: The Ultimate Ranked List of the 101 Best Films of All Time!
The 101 best movies ever made—from around the world and across a century—unfold here in order, along with critical commentary, behind-the-scenes information, and hundreds of lush photographs.
Movie ranking has become an annual sport, and this global, all-encompassing list features the best of all time. It is sure to be a must-have for every dedicated filmgoer eager to watch the greats that he or she has not yet seen and to recall favorite films from every era. Completely revised since its hardcover publication, it features movies from as recently as 2007, plus a new foreword.
Full-color, three-page sections celebrate each film on the list, which has been carefully compiled by two expert critics to include films from every decade, every genre, and a wide variety of cultures. Classics include Citizen Kane, Casablanca, The Wizard of Oz, and Star Wars; international films include Rules of the Game, The 400 Blows, and Rashomon; additions to the list since publication of the hardcover include The Lives of Others, City Lights, Pan's Labyrinth, and Groundhog Day. Each section includes cast lists, plot synopses, biographies of the director and key actors, Oscar nominations and wins, "behind-the-screen" anecdotes, and more.
