Abstract:

"Thomson has demonstrated wit and originality beyond a reasonable doubt [in] the latest edition of his deservedly treasured reference work ... He proves anew that he is irreplaceable ... His monologue has blossomed into an unlikely, searching dialogue about what to value in the movies -- how to love what's come befoe without nostalgia, and how to find the courage to demand more from the stuff being made right now ... One of the most probing accounts ever written of a human being's engagement with the movies." Sarah Kerr, New York Times Book Review.
