  • Try to Tell the Storyby David Thomson

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2009; US$ 15.00

    David Thomson, one of our most celebrated film writers, gives us a haunting, fascinating memoir about growing up as an only child in wartime England.  He was born in London in the aftermath of the war, where he was raised by his mother, grandmother, and upstairs tenant, Miss Davis.  He remembers how his grandmother brought him to a street corner to... more...

  • Nicole Kidmanby David Thomson

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2008; US$ 15.95

    From the brilliant film historian and critic David Thomson, a book that reinvents the star biography in a singularly illuminating portrait of Nicole Kidman?and what it means to be a top actress today. At once life story, love letter, and critical analysis, this is not merely a book about who Kidman is but about what she is?in our culture and in our... more...

  • The Moment of Psychoby David Thomson

    Renowned film critic David Thomson plumbs the horror and inspiration of Alfred Hitchcock?s greatest film. more...

  • Bette Davisby David Thomson

    Faber & Faber 2010; US$ 8.99

    ?She could look demure while behaving like an empress. Blonde, with eyes like pearls too big for her head, she was very striking, but marginally pretty and certainly not beautiful . . . But it was her edge that made her memorable?her upstart superiority, her reluctance to pretend deference to others.?   Bette Davis was the commanding figure of... more...

  • Gary Cooperby David Thomson

    Faber & Faber 2010; US$ 8.99

    ?Cooper was heroic, of course, in his own mind as much as in his scripts. He was manly, tall, ruggedly handsome. He was a man for a fight.? On screen he was the ultimate all-American hero: lean, laconic, and masculine, a lone sheriff battling his enemies in High Noon , or a tough individualist in The Fountainhead . Off-screen he bedded a host... more...

  • Humphrey Bogartby David Thomson

    Faber & Faber 2010; US$ 8.99

    ?Look, I?m hardly pretty, he seems to say. I sound like gravel; I look rough and tough; and, honest, I don?t give you the soft, foolish answers the pretty boys will give you. You may not like what I say, but you better believe it.? He became a legend as ?Bogie,? the world-weary, wisecracking outsider, but in reality Humphrey Bogart was plagued... more...

  • 'Have You Seen...?'by David Thomson

    Penguin Books Ltd 2008; Not Available

    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...

  • The Big Screenby David Thomson

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2012; US$ 18.99

    The Big Screen tells the enthralling story of the movies: their rise and spread, their remarkable influence over us, and the technology that made the screen?smaller now, but ever more ubiquitous?as important as the images it carries. The Big Screen is not another history of the movies. Rather, it is a wide-ranging narrative about the movies... more...
