The Movie Guide is the most comprehensive, in-depth film reference available in a single volume - the indispensable sourcebook for movie buffs and film scholars alike. Collected from the vast databases of CineBooks, the world's leading film authority, The Movie Guide provides key information not available in other single-volume guides. With longer, more detailed reviews and fascinating film facts, this easy-to-use, alphabetized guide covers well over 3,000 of the most important films ever made - from accepted classics such as Citizen Kane and Schindler's List, to cult hits and "sleepers" like The Crying Game and Strictly Ballroom, to the most-talked-about films of the year. Whether it's foreign films or The Flintstones, every movie fan will applaud The Movie Guide's in-depth coverage and special features: Comprehensive reviews - with detailed plot synopses and probing critical insights, often supplemented by special anecdotal material not found in other film guides. Complete cast listings - including major cast information (up to ten main actors) and the names of the characters played. Academy Awards - the special honors that each film has received. Not only the winners in every category, but the nominees as well. Top creative credits - including director, producer, cinematographer, editor, art director, music composer, costume designer, special effects, and more. Essential for the true fan who appreciates the collaborative nature of film. Production information - crucial film facts such as year of release, running time, distributor, production company, country of origin, and color code. Rating systems - not only the MPAA rating (essential for family viewing), but a special star ratingsystem based on the film's overall critical merit.
