1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die is the Updated version that carries an in-depth detail of all the brand-new entries to delineate the latest substantial motion pictures. This tome has already drawn accolades from both fans and critics equally and interestingly scales more than a decade of moviemaking, laconically describing 1001 of the best films that have been made to date.
This is a rather handsome, ponderous and a well-put-together volume, which is almost every film lover’s dream. Ranging from the smallest capsule sized reviews to full-page admirations, all the 1001 movies have been carefully selected by Steven Jay Schneider, in order in which these movies were released.
Movie fans from all around the world will find the minute details of westerns like High Noon, dramas like and Schindler’s List and Chinatown, science-fiction classics like Star Wars, great musicals like Singing in the Rain and international classics from legendary directors like Antonioni, Fellini, Truffaut, Resnais, Kurosawa, Eisenstein and many more.
Each entry encompasses a full list of credits and casts, an essay that encapsulates the screen-history and storyline, awards bagged by the film and still shots of various indelible scenes from the film. The back of the book contains a genre index as well as an alphabetical index that will make it easy for the readers to find any film of their preference.
To make it look even more attractive, this book is illuminated with more than a hundred movie still shots, both in black and white and color.
