This title contains favorite flicks - the best of a century.They say that in life, there are winners and there are losers. The movies we selected for this two-volume collection are winners indeed, but those who didn't make the cut are not losers. We just didn't like them quite as much. Though it was a tough choice, TASCHEN believes that the 100 movies featured herein are the finest examples of filmmaking our kind has known. From horror to comedy, fantasy to tragedy, epic to musical, all genres are represented in this wide-ranging and devilishly fun compendium.Chronological entries each include a synopsis, cast/crew listings, technical information, actor/director bios, trivia, awards, and of course plenty of film stills and production photos.Take it from us: each of these movies deserves to be watched, re-watched, studied, and celebrated. These are the 20th century films whose influence endures most prominently.
