'Have You Seen...?'
This is veteran film writer David Thomson's personal, irreverent, hilarious and utterly original take on the 1,000 films he has most loved - and hated - from esteemed classics to forgotten curiosities, guilty pleasures to noir treats, horror gems to kitsch disasters. The result is probably the most enjoyable film book you will ever read (and you'll never think about "The Sound of Music" in the same way again).
Delightful ... the world's leading sage about film ... It's like having the most film-literate pal you can imagine sitting beside you in a multiplex -- John Walsh Independent This book sets the bar. There isn't a more intelligent, insightful and provocative guide to individual movies in the world -- Nigel Andrews Financial Times A dazzlingly authoritative treat ... crammed with insight and epigram -- Geoff Dyer Observer Eccentric, brilliant, scholarly, perverse, witty, egocentric and infuriating, sometimes all at once -- Philip French Time Out A treasure trove for film buffs ... there is probably no finer contemporary writer on what makes the movies so unmissable -- Allan Hunter Herald
