Called "the best literary gift to travelers since the Baedeker and Henry James" (Financial Times), City Secrets guides are charming travelers' companions to the world's most fascinating cities. In New York, London, Rome, Florence, and Venice, City Secrets offers reflections and discoveries from the authors, artists, and historians who know each city best. Movies takes this intimate, insider's approach to the arts, featuring brief essays and recommendations by esteemed figures in the film industry--including actors, directors, producers, and critics--and other writers and figures in the arts. Some have written on a film, or an aspect of a film (a performance, style, or theme) that they feel is overlooked or underappreciated. Others have chosen a well-known film for which they can offer personal insights or behind-the-scenes observations. Contributors include Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson, Ken Auletta, Milos Forman, Anjelica Huston, Barbara Kopple, Sidney Lumet, Simon Schama, and many others. A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to The Film Foundation, an organization founded by Martin Scorsese that raises funds for film restoration and conversation, and promotes awareness about motion picture history.
