This annual edition of the Time Out Film Guide, now updated to include over 12,000 films, covers every area of world cinema: classic silents and thirties comedies, documentaries and the avant-garde, French and Japanese cinema, Hollywood mainstream and B-rated horror films. Time Out's extraordinarily strong international coverage includes award listings for the Berlin, Venice, and Cannes festivals as well as the Oscar winners since 1927. Fully cross-referenced with extensive indexes covering films by country, genre, subject, director, and actor, this is the ultimate guide for movie lovers of all inclinations. Combining a wealth of practical information -- director, cast, alternative titles, running time, release date -- with thirty years of authoritative analyses from 207 Time Out reviewers, this A-to-Z directory delivers honest, incisive, informed, and contentious criticism. The seventh edition includes 700 new reviews from every genre of world cinema and, for the first time, a readers' poll of all-time top-ten films.

Review:

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 Bond
