1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die

The ultimate movie guide. Telling you everything you need to know about the must-see movies, from the ones you shouldn’t have missed the first time around, to the ones you can see again and again, this reference guide details each genre of film, from romance to horror and sci-fi.

The information of each of the 1001 films is not particularly a review, more a synopsis with in-depth information about the director, the genre, how it plays out in the film or maybe how it affects the political, social and cultural climate during the date the film ran. Each film contains one or more quality photos of the film or actors. The listings begin by year, so Classic Films are easy to find with more than 600 entries. The alphabetical index can be searched by Film Index or by Director. There is an additional listing divided into categories, such as Fantasy or Crime. Although a few of the contributors are actual film critics, most are professors of film studies.
