THOMSON, DAVID - The Big Screen  The Story of the Movies

Title: The Big Screen The Story of the Movies
Description: Farrar, Strauss and Giroux, New York, NY, USA, 2012 Octavo; hardcover, with metallic blue spine-titling; 595pp., with 16pp. of monochrome plates and many illustrations. Dustwrapper. Remainder. New. "David Thomson is, I think, the best writer on film in our time. If 'Have You Seen . . . ?' was his most succinct and entertaining book, The Big Screen is a large and vivacious map of 'the screen': beginning with Muybridge and tracing careers ranging from Korda to Renoir to Hawkes to Mizoguchi, to David Lynch and Tarantino, then swerving over to television shows such as I Love Lucy and The Sopranos. Thomson has found and created a marvelous plot for the history of film, with insights and revelations on every page--as well as a few MacGuffins. He is our most argumentative and trustworthy historian of the screen." - Michael Ondaatje.
