Juxtaposing the fanciful and... more...

This is possibly the most entertaining, surprising and enjoyable film book ever written. Thomson set himself the near-foolhardy task of writing one page each on 1000 of the films that he has particularly liked ? or in some cases, abhorred. Some half-million words of funny, vigorous, wayward prose later, we are all the happy beneficiaries of his deranged... more...

Today's political and cultural climate makes it more crucial than ever to come to terms with the consequences of this earlier period of repression... more...

40 years ago as a Graduate student I wrote a book about Spaghetti Westerns, called 10,000 ways to die. It's an embarrassing tome when I look at it now: full of half- assed semiotics and other attenuated academic nonsense. In the intervening period, I have had the interesting experience of being a film director. So now, when I watch these films, I'm... more...
