David Thomson's "Have You Seen? - A Personal Introduction to 1,000 Films" is a quirky, idiosyncratic and hugely entertaining look at a century of cinema. This is veteran film writer David Thomson's personal, irreverent, hilarious and utterly original take on the 1,000 films he has most loved - and hated - from "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein" to "Zabriskie Point", from esteemed classics to forgotten curiosities, guilty pleasures to noir treats, horror gems to kitsch disasters. The result is probably the most enjoyable film book you will ever read (and you'll never think about "The Sound of Music" in the same way again). "Delightful ...it's like having the most film-literate pal you can imagine sitting beside you in a multiplex". ("Independent"). "A joy ...he's incapable of writing a boring sentence". ("Evening Standard" Books of the Year). "This book sets the bar. There isn't a more intelligent, insightful and provocative guide to individual movies in the world". ("Financial Times"). "Every reader's simple instinct will be to plunge into the heart of it". ("Sunday Times"). "A dazzlingly authoritative treat ...crammed with insight and epigram". ("Observer"). "Eccentric, brilliant, scholarly, perverse, witty, egocentric and infuriating, sometimes all at once". (Philip French). "He enrages, exasperates, but never leaves one indifferent". ("The Times" Books of the Year). David Thomson is, among many other things, author of "The New Biographical Dictionary of Film", now in its fourth edition. His recent books include a biography of Nicole Kidman, "Fan Tan" (a novel written in collaboration with Marlon Brando) and "The Whole Equation: A History of Hollywood".
