This is way more than a simple fleshed-out list of movies. Indeed, it's a selective survey of film history highlighting some of the people who effected the big turning points in the art. Schickel's writing is superb, personal and a delight to read. I would have been happier if the book were triple the length. You'll want to keep a pencil and paper handy while reading to jot down the movies you'll want to see because there is no specific list to be found therein.
