* NEW DATE for A.O. Scott Signing "The New York Times Book of Movies"

On Saturday, May 2, at 4 pm, A.O. Scott will discuss and sign The New York Times Book of Movies: The Essential 1,000 Movies to See, which he compiled together with his longtime colleague at the Times, Manohla Dargis. A great opportunity to meet in-person with one of the nation's leading film critics. (This is the new date for the event originally scheduled for March 14.)
 
A collection of review of the 1,000 most important, popular, and influential movies of all times.
 
While critiques of beloved Hollywood milestones from Stanley Kubrick, Steven Spielberg, Alfred Hitchcock, and Orson Welles are all included, this book is notably a resource for the modern cinema buff and student. Nowhere else can one find this curated collection of reviews with such special features as lists of best films by category and year, as well as unique recommendations and sidebars for the modern viewer—including what to watch and how: from DVD and Blu-Ray to streaming platforms.
 
In an era when many students and fans of film simply rely on the Internet for information, this category killer will prove its worth as a relevant and indispensable gift and reference.
