Description

This is Barry Norman's personal selection of his best 100 films of the century. As he says in his introduction: '...there is one thing of which I am quite sure: you will not agree with all of it. You will agree with some of it; there are films included which would undoubtedly on everybody's list but equally there are several, maybe many, which would not appear 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 significant developments and thereby give some kind of context to my choice of the best 100 films of this century'.show more
