Originally published: New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2012.
David Thomson tells the enthralling story of the movies and how they have shaped us. Taking us around the globe, through time and across multiple media, he tracks the ways in which we were initially enchanted by this mesmerising imitation of life and let movies - the stories, the stars, the look - show us how to live. But at the same time he shows us how movies have made it possible for us to evade life altogether.
