Descriptions du produit

From Sean Connery to Roy Rogers, from comedy to political satire, films that include espionage as a plot device run the gamut of actors and styles. More than just 'spy movies', espionage films have evolved over the history of cinema and American culture, from stereotypical foreign spy themes, to patriotic star features, to the Cold War plotlines of the sixties, and finally to the sexy, slick films of the nineties. This reference filmography comprehensively covers movies involving elements of espionage, from "The Abductors" to "Zotz"! Each entry includes release date, running time, alternate titles, cast and crew, a brief synopsis, and commentary. There is an introduction that analyzes the development of these films and their reflection of the changing culture that spawned them.

Not the definitive work 28 avril 2007

Not sure what better guides are out there, but this one has some serious flaws. It does have a good index (essential for any filmography, and a number of them suprisingly don't have good indices) and lists a fair number of films. The biggest letdown are the reviews themselves, which veer from descriptive to opinionated consistently. I have no problems with somewhat opinionated reviews, but the author seems to have some crippling prejudices: "worst kind of Regan-era simplified nonsense," is an example of a comment -- but the author also has an axe to grind against Bond films, Hitchcock, and Paul Newman as an actor! Peculiar, and annoying. Very weak in listing cast, crew, director, alternate titles, and other relevant information far more interesting than some of the commentary and remarks on box office draw.

Furthermore this book is very out-of-date now, since a number of good films have been re-released on DVD only recently. I would hesitate to buy an updated book by this author, and I think his audience would be better served by far less commentary and "critical" reponse and a run-down of how well a film did at the box office. I think this is a shame, because I bought this book on the strength of another interesting review by this author and the overwhelmingly positive reviews I saw here. Skip this one.

Better filmographies out there:

The quirky but extremely useful Overlook film seriesThe Overlook Film Encyclopedia: Horror (The Overlook Film Encyclopedia Series), The Videohound Golden Retriever books Videohound's Golden Movie Retriever 2007 (Videohound's Golden Movie Retriever), and the TLA Video guides TLA Video & DVD Guide 2005: The Discerning Film Lover's Guide (Tla Video & DVD Guide)

Not authorative enough, alas 21 juillet 2013
Par Hans J. Wollstein - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I am enjoying this A to Z of espionage films as far as it goes, and unlike other reviewers on these pages, I have no problem with the author's personal opinions. In fact, I enjoy agreeing or disagreeing with him. Books like this one without any points of view are meaningless lists, in my opinion. No, where the author fails is in the area of inclusion. Or lack thereof. Mr Mavis completely disregards the biggest repository of espionage mayhem in classic Hollywood: the cliffhanger serials. Spies and secret agents and G-Men were present in nearly every serial made between 1930 and 1956. Even popping up in westerns and Northwest Mounted Police thrillers. And in the silent era, at least one serial, Wm. Randolph Hearst's PATRIA from 1917, became one of the era's great cause celebres. Why this omission? Probably because Mr Mavis used the American Film Institute Catalog subject categories as his database, which contain only feature films of 5 reels or longer. A totally arbitrary distinction especially when it comes to the pre 1920 era. Yes, the book would have benn quite a bit heftier with the inclusion of serials, but would also make much more sense.

Don't waste your money 24 février 2003
Par Johan K. Kjellstrom - Publié sur
Format: Broché
While the book lists 1760 spy movies which is good for referance the authors very opinionated reviews leaves a very bad impression. He also forgets to list the majority of the Euro spy movies made during the spy craze of the 60's. This is probably on purpose as the ones he has listed he ridicules.
Don't waste your money unless you are a die hard spy fan and want to use this book for film title referance.

Terrific, authoritative guide -- very entertaining! 11 juillet 2003

Format: Broché
Here's the best guide out there for spy and espionage films, and one of the best filmographies period. Mavis doesn't forget one film, and his comments are strong and persuasive; he's not afraid to say what he really thinks about a movie. He can also be very, very funny -- is he the only other person to see how bad Tom Cruise and Keanu Reeves are??? Expert film analysis, as well, and great pictures. BUY THIS BOOK!

The definitive guide to spy movies! 19 mars 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Forget the previous customer review, and check out what the book critics and film historians think -- this book is the best single resource for spy films released in America. It's also one of the funniest film books I've ever read -- I can't wait for his next book. The credits are more complete than other film sources, the photos are fascinating, and the author's comments are really helpful -- and again, hysterical. Should be in every film lover's library!
