The Time Out Film Guide has become a 'must-buy' for all film buffs: it is widely regarded as the best guide on the market. It reviews over 14,000 films, and contains unique features like obituary notes of those in the film business who died in the previous year. The 2003 edn has been completely revamped for the first time in 15 years: much larger format, over 1800 pages of text, full essays on 100 famous films, and - for the first time - colour pictures. This new look will confirm the TO Guide as the leader in the field.

Review:

A film reference book with a distinctly British flavor, the Time Out Film Guide is a collection of capsule reviews written originally for the London magazine Time Out. Its commentary is more lengthy and detailed than that of most other guides, and while some of its critics summarize 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 major films not widely released in America, 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 lists of films by genre, by major film-producing country, by actor, director, and general subject that make it a necessary reference tool for movie lovers.

About the Author:

John Pym took over editorship of the annual Time Out Film Guide in 1994, but he began reviewing films for the weekly magazine in the late 70s.
