Defining Moments in Movies: The Greatest Films, Stars, Scenes, and Events That Made Movie Magic by Chris Fujiwara

Which moments have defined the silver screen: Bogey’s "Here’s looking at you, Kid,” in Casablanca? Hitchcock’s shocking shower scene in Psycho? Morphing, flying bodies in The Matrix? From the Lumière brothers’ first public film exhibition in 1895 through the arrival of sound, from the golden age of Hollywood to Italian Neo-Realism, the French New Wave, and beyond to contemporary Asian cinema, this guide captures every facet of movie magic. Worldwide in scope, and written by a team of experts, it encompasses all the major directors, brilliant stars, popular genres, and even the most significant technical developments and influential film criticism. Every film buff will treasure this!
