Selected, edited and written by film critics from the "Daily Telegraph", "Time Out", the "Sunday Times", "Sight and Sound" and "LOVEFiLM", "The DVD Stack" contains the finest film writing.

The editors' aim was to make a book 'representing both the best of cinema and the best of DVD'.

From the classic ("Casablanca", "On the Waterfront") to the cult ("The Big Lebowski", "Mulholland Drive"); from foreign language ("La Dolce Vita", "Oldboy") to documentary ("Bus 174", "Capturing the Friedmans"); from the arthouse ("The Kingdom", "Solaris") to the multiplex ("Con Air", "Kill Bill"), all manner and make of film on DVD is here...

Review:

"The writing is sharp, informative and amusing throughout." What's On In London "Of course if this book were worth its salt then it'd have to be The Best Book About The Best DVDs etc etc. Thankfully it is. It's awesome in fact. I'm flummoxed how they managed to sit and watch so many films and extras. Must have been tough... lucky bastards." Buzz "It's sober, understated and written by people who really know their stuff." Evening Standard"
