This book was much appreciated by a young colleague. It’s a great gift if you don’t know somebody that well but know they love films, Thanks Taschen!

The Preferred Way to Binge Flix

We all have our favorite movies, directors and performers, and we might also find ourselves sticking too much to their lane. This is when we get into a movie watching rut. 100 All-Time Favorite Movies can cure that. 1.) Buy the book 2.) Pretend you've never seen the flick. 3.) READ THE BOOK (ANY ORDER) 4.) Refamiliarize yourself with movie 5.) Enjoy!

For the movie lovers

Jean-Jacques,October 28, 2021
So interesting to learn over all these movies...

Compact, comprehensive and informative book

Stephen,October 27, 2021
There is so much packed into this relatively compact book. It is beautifully printed offering so much informative text on each of the chosen films featured, and also some gorgeous visuals in the form of stills, and poster artwork. A valuable addition to my book collection, not only as an avid cinema goer and film fan, but also as a movie poster collector.
