9780671501112: The Rolling Stone Film Reader: The Best Film Writing from Rolling Stone Magazine

From Easy Rider to Pulp Fiction, the writers of Rolling Stone have captured the raw verve and energy of 30 years of maverick filmmaking--and its impact on two generations. The Rolling Stone Film Reader is a fascinating compendium of the magazine's takes on the best in movies from Hollywood to New York to Cannes to Asia, and the players who made it happen. Photos throughout.

From Publishers Weekly:

November 9, 1967, marked the debut of Rolling Stone. According to Peter Travers, editor of The Rolling Stone Film Reader: The Best Film Writing from Rolling Stone Magazine, the magazine's editor, Jann S. Wenner, declared at the outset that his "publications would cover not only music but also 'the things and attitudes that the music embraces' "?and that included film. Through the years, the film reviews and interviews by a talented group of writers have followed Wenner's call "to cut through the myth and the nonsense." Travers's lists of 50 maverick and 50 rebel films complete the package.
