Overview

Optimized for use on the Nook, updated to include the best films from the first decade of the twenty-first century, this brand-new edition of 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die surveys more than a century of movie history. Every film profile is packed with the details that movie lovers need to know about the world's great movie classics. Chronicling the complete history of filmmaking, this important survey dates back to silent-era sensations such as D. W. Griffith's controversial The Birth of a Nation and the immortal Little Tramp movies of Charlie Chaplin, and then covers blockbusters of the past like Gone With the Wind, Doctor Zhivago, and Raiders of the Lost Ark. Also described are Hollywood's most memorable musicals, great dramas, screwball comedies, experimental "New Wave" films from 1950s and '60s Europe, major films noir, classic westerns, action and adventure films, and outstanding documentaries. New films summarized in this edition include the multi-Oscar winning The King's Speech, as well as Slumdog Millionaire, The Social Network, The Hurt Locker, Avatar, and The Black Swan, among others. Each profile lists the film's director and cast, presents a plot summary and production notes, and cites interesting, often little-known facts relating to the film's cast, storyline, and production history. For students of cinema, discerning film buffs, DVD collectors, and readers who enjoy reminiscing over cherished screen moments, the newly updated third edition of 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die is the perfect place to start.
