Summary, etc.: More than a century after the Lumière brothers made their first movie, the magic of the silver screen refuses to fade. Even silent era classics, such as the futuristic Metropolis, still retain the power to astonish. The talkies introduced new genres-- among them the special-effects blockbuster, first seen in King Kong and reinvented in the 1980s with Steven Spielberg's Jaws-- that continue to inspire and enthrall. In more recent years, technological progress has led to such groundbreaking achievements as Toy Story and Gravity. Including more than 100 of the best movies made, from The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari to Boyhood, the book contains highlights taken from every genre and every part of the world-- from neorealism to the New Wave, and from crime thriller to romantic comedy, fantasy, and sci-fi. The Movie Book is the perfect introduction to this fascinating subject, bound to delight and entertain film buffs and new movie audiences alike.
