More than one thousand pages in the voice of our most provocative contemporary film critic and historian--a generous history of film and an enticing critical appraisal written with as much humor and passion as historical knowledge.

Juxtaposing the fanciful and the fabulous, the old favorites and the forgotten, this sweeping collection presents the films that Thomson offers to answer the question he gets asked most often--"What should I see?" Not content to choose only his own top films, Thomson has created a list that will surprise and delight you--and send you to your DVD player. But he also probes the question: After one hundred years of film, which ones are the best, and why?

"Have You Seen . . . ?" suggests a true canon of cinema and is a must for anyone who loves the silver screen: the perfect confection to dip into for a taste of controversy, little-known facts, and ideas about what to see. You'll want to return to this volume again and again, like a dear but argumentative friend in the dark at the movies.

Films are organized alphabetically and indexed by decade. Would have been more useful to me if also indexed by genre or movement as well.
