The Movie Book

AUTHOR: DK

An updated edition of DK's "BIg Ideas" guide to the world of cinema

Does Chinatown subvert the film noir genre? What is the effect of Pulp Fiction's episodic plot? How do multiple points of view undermine notions of reality in Rashomon? Learn the answer to these questions and more with The Movie Book, the ultimate guide to the greatest movies ever to grace the silver screen.

Part of DK's bestselling Big Ideas series, The Movie Book chronicles the history of cinema, from the golden age of black-and-white films to international art-house and 21st-century sci-fi. The key themes and big ideas behind more than 100 of the world's most celebrated cinematic gems are explored in authoritative and engaging text.

Beginning with the iconic A Trip to the Moon (1902), immerse yourself in the world of film, from The Wizard of Oz (1939), Vertigo (1958), and Jaws (1975) to Spirited Away (2006), Slumdog Millionaire (2008) and Parasite (2019). Discover everything about your favourite movies, as well as celebrated classics and the films you need to see, through film stills, posters, biographies, movie memorabilia, and narrative timelines. Along with iconic quotes from the films themselves and key critics, this book brings cinema to life.

Whether you are a fan of comedies, romance, musicals, action movies, or thrillers, The Movie Book is essential for anyone with a passion for cinema.
