The Big Screen, The Story of the Movies by David Thomson

I received this book for Christmas and I am really enjoying it, I’d call it a companion piece to the “Story of Film, an Odyssey” the 15 episode DVD collection which was on TCM last year.  “. . . it’s not another history of the movies.  Rather, it is a wide-ranging narrative about the movies and their signal role in modern life.”
