From the Inside Flap:

"The real usefulness of . . . 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die, is that it provides good ideas for DVD rentals. I have, by the way, seen 943 of the 1001 movies, and am carefully rationing the remaining titles to prolong my life."
--Roger Ebert

"1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die is . . . a great motivating guide to cinema. After reading one of its engaging, often profound entries on a missed film, you want to run out and rent it."
--Dallas Morning News

"Schneider and his team . . . explain why each film is a must see. Schneider's choices are irrefutable."
--Library Journal
