The Time Out Film Guide is a collection of capsule reviews written originally for the Time Out magazine. Its commentary is more lengthy and detailed than that of most other guides and while some of its critics summarise too much of their movies' plots, their critical remarks are engaging and provocative. The Time Out Film Guide features contributions from scores of movie critics who sometimes spar with one another: compare the book's two assessments of Blade Runner. The reviewers cover many European and Asian movies you won't find in other movie guides. This is the only film book where you can find remarks on Casablanca, Gone with the Wind and Forrest Gump alongside reviews of non-Hollywood films such as Samuel Beckett and Buster Keaton's Film, Akira Kurosawa's Madadayo, and Michelangelo Antonioni's Identification of a Woman. The Time Out Film Guide also contains a great number of terrific appendices and indices. In fact, it is this book's listing of films by genre, major film-producing country, actor, director, and general subject that make it a necessary reference tool for movie lovers. --Jake BondReview:
