A Century of Films : Derek Malcolm's Personal Best, Paperback

A Century of Films : Derek Malcolm's Personal Best Paperback


nvited by the _Guardian_ newspaper to explore his choice of one hundred films in a weekly column over the two years spanning the millenium, film writer and critic Derek Malcolm set out on a project which has attracted much attention and has resulted in this stimulating, entertaining and surprising personal view of world cinema.

This is not a 'best of' but a critical celebration of one hundred films based on unparallelled knowledge and understanding of what cinema can achieve, Malcolm not only gives pleasure to filmgoers, but introduces readers to films that they may not yet have discovered, encouraging us to experience a wider range of the riches that the international cinema has to offer.

Whether giving new ways of seeing a familiar - not necessarily best-known - film from a well-known director, or celebrating a lesser known gem, whether writing about stars and actors, cinematographers, or moments of cinematic grace, *Derek Malcolm* demonstrates how it is that he has earned his place as one of the world's most celebrated film critics.
