Item description for Time Out 1000 Films to Change Your Life (Time Out Guides) by Time Out...
Overview Provides a guide to movies based on the emotions that they evoke, providing a look at the cinematic history behind nine emotions--joy, anger, desire, fear, sadness, exhilaration, regret, contempt, and wonder--along with a "food for thought" section for movies that make the audience think.
Over 1,000 films are listed in this visually arresting, full-color celebration of the silver screen. Film personalities, including actors, directors, cinematographers, and animators, write about their favorite films from a variety of angles. Martin Scorsese, Nicole Kidman, and Nick Hornby are among those who weigh in. Writers are matched to suitable (or sometimes surprising) themes and genres within the wider subject of how films can alter the course of a life. Movie stills and posters, trivia, and top-ten lists make this a book that can be dipped into or read from cover to cover. Great screen moments — endings, beginnings, kisses, death scenes — are given special spreads. The eclectic approach speaks to fans of big Hollywood blockbusters and factoid-reciting film geeks alike. <i>Time Out</i> guides have become well-known for their hip, savvy travel coverage, and this wider-ranging pop cultural coverage follows in this tradition.

Change your life? Jul 23, 2008
It's a great book to pick and read a chapter or two. You may not agree with all the selections (I didn't), but that's part of what makes it fun and interesting reading
A Great Source for Good Movies! Jul 22, 2008
This book is not only an excellent source for good movies, but also well-composed contents with numerous comments from movie directors/ actors/ actress. You can also find the movies in 10 categories: Joy, Anger, Food for thought, Desire, Fear, Sadness, Exhilaration, Regret, Contempt and Wonder. I thought TIMEOUT was a sort of fashion paper but I was wrong on this one. It deserves to buy it, own it and keep it....to me.
