Dilys Powell is the doyenne of British film critics. Reviewing for the Sunday Times, and more recently Punch, she has built up a reputation for perceptive assessment. Divided into thematic sections, this selection from over fifty years of criticism reveals her views on such topics as British cinema, the French, film stars, genres, adaptations, and censorship. In addition to critiques of such key films as Citizen Kane and Rashomon, there are entertaining pieces on biblical epics, biopics, and the musical, and sections on films she loathed and those she tried hard to like.
