David Thomson, 'the greatest of today's film writers' according to JG Ballard, has added over 100 new entries and completely updated his Dictionary for this fifth edition. The entries range from brief biographies of one or two paragraphs to short essays on major figures such as Antonioni, Graham Greene, Marilyn Monroe or Werner Herzog. Significant newcomers to the industry are here along with the famous names of movie history - their careers described in Thomson's witty, passionate and accurate, yet opinionated, style.
