Written by 250 of the best critics, the Time Out Film Guide is a collection of nearly 16,000 engaging and provocative capsule reviews of films across the spectrum of cinema history, from Russian silent movies to American comedies, classic documentaries to Japanese anime, B-movies to Hollywood blockbusters. Each review contains major technical credits, country of origin, running time, color code, copyright year, and cast list. Icons identify the top 100 films named in both readers' and Cinema Centenary polls. Twenty-one appendices classify titles by category and country, while comprehensive indices identify award-winning films, plus the works of important actors and every director covered in the guide. Another index allows readers to search by subject, covering everything from buddy movies to film noir to teen flicks. New features in this edition include color tabs throughout for easy navigation; more color illustrations; 50 filmmaker interviews focusing on current features; and 100 new "cinefile" pages featuring full-color images and more in-depth reviews of classic, oddball, or underrated films.
