The DVD Stack: The Essential Guide To The World's Best DVD's

by NickBradshaw (Editor), TimRobey (Editor)


Selected, edited and written by film critics from the "Daily Telegraph", "Time Out", the "Sunday Times", "Sight and Sound" and "LOVEFiLM", "The DVD Stack" contains the finest film writing. It also compares and rates different DVD editions of classic films from around the world, including the all-important special features. So whether it is limited editions, budget releases, box-sets, special editions or more, "The DVD Stack 2nd Edition" can tell you the best possible edition of the movie and where in the world to find it. The editors' aim was to make a book 'representing both the best of cinema and the best of DVD'. Mixing the canonical and the eclectic, it also allows its writers to make idiosyncratic choices, so that it can help create the right DVD stack for your living room. From the classic ("Casablanca", "On the Waterfront") to the cult ("The Big Lebowski", "Mulholland Drive"); from foreign language ("La Dolce Vita", "Oldboy") to documentary ("Bus 174", "Capturing the Friedmans"); from the arthouse ("The Kingdom", "Solaris") to the multiplex ("Con Air", "Kill Bill"), all manner and make of film on DVD is here...
