Want to broaden your cinematic horizons? Or perhaps you just need a recommendation for something to watch tonight?
One excellent resource is 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die, edited by Steven Jay Schneider. Its new tenth anniversary edition, updated by Ian Haydn Smith, covers movies from the first silents like 1902’s A Trip to the Moon, directed by Georges Méliès, all the way to 2012’s Life of Pi, directed by Ang Lee (which is featured on the book’s cover). I’ve been using this book to encourage myself to learn more about movie history and watch movies I otherwise never would have considered.
