Description

For Keeps offers the best of Kael's reviews and other writings on movies from the collections that have marked her matchless career, starting with I Lost It at the Movies (1965), through Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Deeper Into Movies (a National Book Award winner), The Citizen Kane Book ("Raising Kane," the full text on the making of the movie, is here), and all the others in a glorious run concluding with Movie Love in 1991. Now that Kael has retired from regular reviewing, her reputation has only increased, and for the inimitable real thing, readers must turn to this volume to sample her perspicacity, fluency, and style. More than 275 reviews are arranged chronologically - in effect, a history of 30 years of movies. This ultimate compendium from America's most eloquent, passionate, and provocative critic is a boon to serious moviegoers and an indispensable companion in the age of the VCR.show more
