5.0 out of 5 stars David Thomson does it again, 12 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: "Have You Seen...?": a Personal Introduction to 1,000 Films Including Masterpieces, Oddities and Guilty Pleasures (with Just a Few Disasters) (Paperback)
I have read everything David Thomson has written, even changing my Sunday newspaper to one he wrote for, and this time he has exceeded himself. Unlike most other critics he realises that a diet of Fellini, Bergman, Antonioni etc. is not enough. We also need the roughage; Abbott and Costello, B noir movies, Tyrone Power swashbucklers et al. Thomson has the ability to turn the base metal of this fare into gold, devoting the same insight and intellectual rigour as he does to the acknowledged masters. This book covers all the bases. One complaint; it should have been 2000 films.
