“The best movie reference book, hands down” ( Newsweek) is now available in a deftly revised and meticulously updated seventh edition. Ephraim Katz’s celebrated and comprehensive cinema Bible, The Film Encyclopedia, has been lovingly expanded to include new, thorough coverage of independent films, the artistic and technical aspects of filmmaking, and the trends that lie close to the heart of today’s movie buff. Cinephiles will delight in new entries ranging from Sophia Coppola and Wes Anderson to The Lord of the Rings and Captain America. Built upon a foundation which inspired Katherine Hepburn to comment, “Wow! What a book!,” The Film Encyclopedia 7e is an indispensable addition to any movie fan’s home library.
