For the past five years Roger Ebert, the famed film writer and critic, has been writing biweekly essays for a feature called "The Great Movies," in which he offers a fresh and fervent appreciation of a great film. The Great Movies collects one hundred of these essays, each one of them a gem of critical appreciation and an amalgam of love, analysis, and history that will send readers back to that film with a fresh set of eyes and renewed enthusiasm_or perhaps to an avid first-time viewing. The Great Movies includes: All About Eve ‚ Bonnie and Clyde ‚ Casablanca ‚ Citizen Kane ‚ The Godfather ‚ Jaws ‚ La Dolce Vita ‚ Metropolis ‚ On the Waterfront ‚ Psycho ‚ The Seventh Seal ‚ Sweet Smell of Success ‚ Taxi Driver ‚ The Third Man ‚ The Wizard of Oz ‚ and eighty-five more films. Wonderfully enhanced by stills selected by Mary Corliss, film curator at the Museum of Modern Art, The Great Movies is a treasure trove for film lovers of all persuasions, an unrivaled guide for viewers, and a book to return to again and again.
