The title should tell it all. These are movies that a group of "experts" think you should see. Not necessarily the best. There are a lot of art films here and foreign films we might not give second thought to. No one is going to agree with all of them. There are some clunkers here. In foreign language films I would have listed "Die Bruecke" (The Bridge) one of the most outstanding anti-war films and "Sobachiye Sertsye" (Heart of a Dog) based on Bulgakov's tale.
But how ANYONE could have left out "The Lion in Winter" from this book is unfathomable. Perfect casting, acting, costuming, realistic set, etc etc.
In many ways this book is almost a tour de force of the film industry over the years.

As a movie buff I am always looking for new to me and also good movies. I went through some best 100 list. Now what do do? Buy this book of course.

Not every movie in this book is Oscar material. Many are historically ground breaking or contain some iconic scene. Some are so bad that they should not be missed.

The information about each movie is enough to determine if I want to watch it or not. What I am so grateful for is having them all listed in one place in order of year.

I only found a few of these titles available for streaming through Netflix. Many are available for rental on DVD. The ones not available illegally I found for download on The Pirate Bay. These brave soles may be breaking copyright laws in the USA but they are keeping hundreds of classics alive.

I'm about to purchase this nice-looking book, but in dipping into it I found this "quotation" from Scorsese's GOODFELLAS. It's Henry Hill near the film's end: "If you ask for spaghetti bolognese they give you noodles with meatballs." That's strange, because Hill actually says, "...right after I got here, I ordered some spaghetti with marinara sauce, and I got egg noodles and ketchup." The entry for this film was from somebody named Kim Newman. Maybe the other contributors are more accurate. I hope so.
