For over four decades, Stanley Kauffmanns film reviews in the New Republic have guided filmgoers and charted the development of the cinema arts. In this collection of film writings, Kauffmann discusses the most influential, exciting and innovative films released since 1993, as well as less successful - sometimes disastrous - efforts. From major films by established Hollywood directors (Steven Spielbergs Saving Private Ryan and Oliver Stones Nixon) to works from the iconoclastic world of independent American film (Neil LaButes In the Company of Men and David O. Russells Spanking the Monkey) to the best of world cinema (Abbas Kiarostamis A Taste of Cherry and Erick Zoncas The Dreamlife of Angels), Kauffmann offers his lively and considered views of over 60 films.

In other essays, he compares cinematic adaptations of Mozarts operas, explores changing public attitudes toward film as an art form, assesses the possibilities of accurately dramatizing the Holocaust, and recalls the careers of such important figures in film history as David Lean, Billy Wilder and Akira Kurosawa.
