About this title


A comprehensive collection of the best reviews and other writings on movie from a respected film critic offers more than 275 chronologically arranged reviews, all with her unique, witty, and knowledgeable touch. 50,000 first printing.


For Keeps is a dazzling anthology of reviews and essays by Pauline Kael, America's most important movie critic. This hefty book contains a fifth of Kael's total output. It reprints all of her most famous reviews, including her controversial treatments of Last Tango in Paris, The Long Goodbye, and Nashville. Also here are some of her best longer essays, "Movie Brutalists," "Trash, Art, and the Movies," and &quoy;Cary Grant: the Man from Dream City." Raising Kane, Kael's book-length revisionist view of Citizen Kane, is reproduced in its entirety. Kael's style is impassioned, incisive, witty, and deeply personal. In the preface to this extraordinary volume, Kael says, "I'm frequently asked why I don't write my memoirs. I think I have."
