    OK so we have a new leader in terms of spoiler countsThis is basically a succession of film spoilers I’ve read my fair share of these kinds of books but never ever have I come across anything which makes such an effort to ruin so many plots to so many films in such a short space of time It’s incredible and I remain puzzled as to what she and the editors were thinkingWho is the target audienceIf you are trying to encourage a new audience then why spoil the plot to almost every single film you describeThere is an overwhelming emphasis on the French New Wave period of the 50s and 60s and a handful of modern ones by the excellent Jean Pierre Jeunet though there are some surprising omissions with only a solitary offering from the Cinema du look period in “Diva” one of only two choices from the 80s Then there’s the absence of “La Haine” “Au revoir les enfants” and the hilarious “Le Diner de Cons” But hey I suppose like any “best of” list its horses for coursesThese films are neither listed in alphabetical or chronological order which puzzled and annoyed me in eual measure It starts off in chronological order before it grows bored and before you know it you’ve got “Au hazard Balthazar” from 1966 jammed between films in 1969 and 1970 That’s either really poor editing or an experimental approach to writing a guide We doesn’t always get the English titles to the movies and there are some minor inaccuracies with one or two of the synopses too The art work is decent enough and it works really well it was a clever touch to draw some of the memorable objects or scenes from some of the movies Higgins does a good enough job with her recommendations so thank you very much for those I really wanted to love this book the idea is promising but this is sorely let down by the delivery and even if this contained the best writing imaginable; these glaring flaws diminish its appeal I understand these flaws are unlikely to annoy everyone and if you have already seen these films or don’t mind spoilers then this could well be for you if not you have been warned
