David Thomson - The Big Screen: The Story of the Movies

Prepare yourself for a great, sprawling epic history of and commentary on the art, science and commerce of motion pictures and their impact on our culture. The Big Screen is Thomson's best work and the most comprehensive artistic, political and cultural analysis to date of what the medium was, its present state and where it's going. There's so much to absorb between and all of it delivered with Thomson's trademark insight and wit. This is the book you're sure to lose yourself in the same as you would watching a great film. I can't recommend this book enough!
