"Useful guide to some great movies"
4 stars"

The satisfyingly chunky proportions of this book and emotive “Must See” in the title invite you to randomly open it at any point for a quick browse. I did that, but found it hard to put down.

There is on average one film featured per page. The text gives a plot synopsis for each film and highlights other interesting information (stand-out performances etc). A listing of director, cast, and awards is also included.

Some great images from the films accompany the text, including personal iconic favourites such as Cary Grant being pursued by a biplane in ‘North by Northwest’, and a gun toting Al Pacino as Tony Montana in “Scarface”.

It is handily divided into 10 categories, which are colour coded (red for Horror, blue for Drama etc) – this is useful for quick reference, or if there is a genre you want to skip browsing. A great little book, although film buffs may need to look further for more in depth analysis and production details. Perfect for settling movie trivia debates and deciding what to rent when the new releases section is uninspiring!


"501 Must See Movies" is essential reading for both the film buff and those who simply enjoy going to the movies. Many of the unrivalled classics are here, but perhaps seen from a new perspective by dynamic young critics, together with some unexpected and new discoveries.
