Insider's guide to movies

posted by Jason Kottke Apr 02, 2009

The folks who publish the excellent City Secrets travel books have come out with a similar guide to movies, The Ultimate Insider's Guide to Cinema's Hidden Gems.

City Secrets offers reflections and discoveries from the authors, artists, and historians who know each city best. Movies takes this intimate, insider's approach to the arts, featuring brief essays and recommendations by esteemed figures in the film industry — including actors, directors, producers, and critics — and other writers and figures in the arts. Some have written on a film, or an aspect of a film (a performance, style, or theme) that they feel is overlooked or underappreciated. Others have chosen a well-known film for which they can offer personal insights or behind-the-scenes observations. Contributors include Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson, Ken Auletta, Milos Forman, Anjelica Huston, Barbara Kopple, Sidney Lumet, Simon Schama, and many others.
