Summary

Summary

Barry Norman is Britain's best known film critic. This is his personal choice of the ' best ever' films. This is a new revised edition Barry Norman's personal selection of his best 100 films of the century. As he says in his intro ' There is 1 thing of which I am quite sure: you will not agree with all o it. You will agree with some of it; there are films included which would undoubtedly be on everybody's list but equally there are several, maybe many, which would appeae on any but mine...' Each of his hundred films are reviewed in his inimitable style: Witty, incisive, controversial. Accompanying the reviews are the main film credits, running times, Oscar nominations and awards, and video availability. In addition to his selection, Barry Norman has written a perceptive brief history of the cinema: My purpose being to pick out the most sinificant developments and thereby give some kind of context to my choice of the best 100 films of this century. This new hardback edition has been completely updated and revised with colour photographs, where appropriate , throughout.
