9781904978213: Time Out Film Guide, 13th Edition

The Time Out Film Guide contains over 15,800 film reviews assembled over 37 years and written by a team of over 230 sharp, knowledgeable critics. These reviews are drawn from the full spectrum of cinema history: Russian silents to Ealing comedies, classic documentaries to Japanese anime, poverty row B-movies to Hollywood blockbusters. Each review is headed by the film's chief technical credits, country of origin, running time, colour code, copyright year and cast list. In addition, icons identify the top 100 films named in both readers' and Cinema Centenary polls. Twenty-one appendices classify by category and country, while comprehensive indices identify the works of every director covered in the guide and those of a selection of significant actors. Features new to the twelfth edition are present here again. These include colour tabs throughout to aid navigation, more colour illustrations, and the inclusion of 100 new cinefile boxes, containing pictures and more indepth reviews of classic films.

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.
