DAVID THOMSON talk & booksigning for “Have You Seen . . . ?: A Personal Introduction to 1,000 Films" Thursday, December 4 at 7:30 pm
In 1975, David Thomson published his "Biographical Dictionary of Film" - few film books have enjoyed better press or such steady sales. Now, thirty-three years later, we have a companion volume, a second book of more than 1,000 pages in one voice - that of our most provocative contemporary film critic and historian. Juxtaposing the fanciful and the fabulous, the old favorites and the forgotten, “Have You Seen . . . ?: A Personal Introduction to 1,000 Films" presents the films that this acclaimed film writer offers in response to the question he gets asked most often.
David Thomson was born in London. He is a regular contributor to publications in both Britain and the United States,and was the screenwriter on the award-winning documentary "The Making of a Legend: Gone With the Wind." His other books include "Showman: The Life of David O. Selznick," "Rosebud," and three works of fiction.
