An all-new guide to 50 years of groundbreaking films from america's most influential alternative newspaper
For the last 50 years, the Village Voice has set the benchmark for passionate, critical, and unique film coverage for a savvy and sophisticated audience. Some of America's most respected film critics and culture writers have championed movies in the pages of the Voice that were often dismissed or ignored by the mainstream media. Now, the Voice has selected 150 of the greatest films that its influential critics have celebrated--and it has compiled their landmark reviews in this one-of-a-kind book??.
Contributors such as J. Hoberman, Andrew Sarris, Jonas Mekas, Georgia Brown, Michael Atkinson, Amy Taubin, Tom Allen, and Oliver Stone will delight and provoke film buffs with their sharp insights and original points of view. Featured filmmakers include acknowledged masters such as Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Jean-Luc Godard, and David Cronenberg as well as the most exciting new names in world cinema from China, Belgium, and Thailand. Featuring smart and compelling reviews for films from the surrealist shocker L'Age d'Or (1930) to the voyeuristic classic Rear Window (1954) to the fascinating drama The Devil, Probably (1977) to the erotic thriller Mulholland Drive (2001), this authoritative reference is your best guide to some of the most important and adventurous movies ever made.
The Village Voice was founded by Dan Wolf, Ed Fancher, and Norman Mailer in 1955. From its beginning, the Voice has pioneered the high-spirited advocacy journalism that has become the hallmark of the alternative press. As America's first and largest alternative newsweekly, the Voice has maintained a tradition of uncompromising reporting and criticism for the past five decades.
