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

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2008; US$ 29.95

    In 1975, David Thomson published his Biographical Dictionary of Film, and few film books have enjoyed better press or such steady sales. Now, thirty-three years later, we have the companion volume, a second book of more than 1,000 pages in one voice?that of our most provocative contemporary film critic and historian. Juxtaposing the fanciful and... more...

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

    Penguin Books Ltd 2008; US$ 31.98

    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...

  • Bette Davis (Great Stars)by David Thomson

    Penguin Books Ltd 2009; US$ 12.78

    '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 the... 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 and... more...

  • The Big Screenby David Thomson

    Penguin Books Ltd 2012; US$ 15.98

Sunday Times , New Statesman , The Times , Guardian , Observer and Independent BOOKS OF THE YEAR Taking us around the globe, through... more...

  • Gary Cooper (Great Stars)by David Thomson

    Penguin Books Ltd 2009; US$ 12.78

    '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 of... more...

  • How to Watch a Movieby David Thomson

    Profile Books 2015; US$ 14.66

    From one of the most admired critics of our time, brilliant insights into the act of watching movies and an enlightening discussion about how to derive more from any film experience. Since first publishing his landmark Biographical Dictionary of Film in 1975 (now in its sixth edition), David Thomson has been one of the most trusted authorities... more...

  • Humphrey Bogart (Great Stars)by David Thomson

    Penguin Books Ltd 2009; US$ 12.78

    '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, wise-cracking outsider, but in reality Humphrey Bogart was plagued by... more...

  • Ingrid Bergman (Great Stars)by David Thomson

    Penguin Books Ltd 2009; US$ 12.78

    'Ingrid Bergman was far more than just a sweet, virtuous, "natural" Swedish girl - she was a dark sensualist over whom many men might go mad. Her very gaze delivered a climate of adult romantic expectation.' Adored by millions for her luminous beauty and elegance, at the height of her career Ingrid Bergman commanded a love that has hardly ever been... more...

  • The Moment of Psychoby David Thomson
