In the first fully illustrated work of his illustrious career, David Thomson re-examines a series of moments which readers will experience in beautifully reproduced imagery from seventy-two carefully selected films across a hundred-year time span. Hailed by John Banville as the greatest living writer on the movies, David Thomson takes readers on an unprecedented visual journey. His moments range from a set of Eadward Muybridge's pioneering photographs to sequences in films from the classic Citizen Kane, Sunset Boulevard and The Red Shoes to the unexpected The Piano Teacher, Burn After Reading immersing the reader via a groundbreaking marriage of imagery and the author's accompanying narrative. David Thomson's evocative, unflinching prose and profound understanding of what makes film and art form identify him as one of the great film writers of our time, making it likely that Moments that Made the Movies will be widely viewed as an important classic on the subject of international cinema.
