It's been a long time since I've come across a set of lists quite so piquant and entertaining as Ten Bad Dates With De Niro.-Louis Bayard, Salon (CriticAs Pick) What are the Top Ten movies for making cigarettes look cool? Do good films ever win the Oscar? What is film's most tragic farewell, greatest opening-credit sequence, grisliest murder, loosest screen adaptation, most gratuitous use of sex and violence? How do you make a great movie without a movie camera? And why do Robert De Niro's characters behave so badly to women? Born of the cinephile's well-known love of lists, Ten Bad Dates with DeNiro is a symposium and celebration of viewing pleasures, private passions, and cinematic lost causes. Contributors include a fine cast of critics, filmmakers, and writers ranging from Steven Soderbergh and the Coen brothers to Andrew O'Hagan and George Pelecanos.show more
