In his first fully illustrated work, David Thomson breaks new ground by focusing in on a series of moments -- which his readers will also experience in beautifully reproduced imagery -- from seventy-two films across a 100-year-plus span. An indispensable counterpart to both his classic Biographical Dictionary of Film (called “a miracle” by Sight and Sound) and his lauded recent history, The Big Screen (“a pungently written, brilliant book” according to David Denby), Moments That Made The Movies ($39.95) takes readers on an unprecedented visual tour, where the specifics of the imagery the reader is seeing are inextricably tied to the text. Thomson's moments range from a set of Eadweard Muybridge's pioneering photographs to sequences in films from the classic -- Citizen Kane, Sunset Boulevard, The Red Shoes -- to the unexpected -- The Piano Teacher, Burn After Reading. Based in San Francisco, David Thomson is the film critic for The New Republic and has written regularly for The Guardian, The Independent, Sight & Sound, Film Comment, and Movieline.
