Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The intelligent person's guide to the movies, with more than 2,800 reviews!

Look up a movie in this guide and, chances are, you'll find yourself reading on about the next movie and the next. Pauline Kael's reviews aren't just provocative — they're addictive.

These brief, informative reviews, written for the "Goings On About Town" section of The New Yorker, provide an immense range of listings — a masterly critical history of American and foreign film. This is probably the only movie guide you'll want to read for the sheer pleasure of it.

Review:

"She's the best film critic we've got." Details

Review:

"A great critic...with a body of criticism which can be compared with Shaw's criticism of music and the theatre." The Times Literary Supplement (London)

Review:

"Kael changed the way we see. Poets aren't the only unacknowledged legislators of the world; great critics write the text as well." San Francisco Examiner

Synopsis:

Smart, funny, and unforgettable, Pauline Kael is the most interesting and influential film critic in America. Her ability to skewer an actor or director and her wit, insight, and thorough knowledge of the film business make her by far the most rewarding regular observer of the movie scene. This new collection covers films that have come out since the previous 1985 edition.
