Top ten books on film

Michael Wood is Charles Barnwell Start Professor of English and Professor of Comparative Literature, Princeton University. His books include Film: A Very Short Introduction.

For the Guardian, Wood named his top ten books on film.

One title on the list:
I Lost It at the Movies by Pauline Kael (1965)

Surely the greatest of all regular film critics,Kael loved the movies with unflagging passion, and wrote especially well about the films that let her passion down. She was always funny. This is the first collection of her work, but there are many others, all wonderful.
Read about the other books on the list.
