5001 Nights at the Movies: A Guide from A to Z
726 pp. "In this volume she has assembled several thousand reviews--written for the Goings On About Town department of The New Yorker--that are not only dazzling but brief, are models of compression. Nothing like this collection of short reviews has ever been seen before. They can be read by moviegoers or television viewers as a guide or they can be read for their own sake: either way they are a marvel. A master of synopsis, Pauline Kael has contrived to tell us between the covers of one book what eight decades of film are about and who is in them and behind them, and to reflect, swiftly, but astutely, on what they signify. No one else has done that; no one else could have done that."Keywords: 5001 NIGHTS AT MOVIES: A GUIDE FROM A TO Z MOTION PICTURES REVIEWS PERFORMING ARTS SCENES, SEQUENCES, PERFORMANCES, SHOTS, IMAGES, TOUCHES, GESTURES, EFFECTS CINEMATHEQUE
