What was the greatest movie ever made - Citizen Kane or Vertigo? To this and other cinematic posers, Thomson brings a lifetime's experience as film critic and movie lover. From Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein to Zabriskie Point, and covering movie-making from 1895 to 2007, serious arthouse to wacky comedy, Thompson's short, sharp essays rescue dozens of great films from obscurity and puncture several undeserved reputations. American-cut pages.
