Join writer and film critic David Thomson, author of The Biographical Dictionary of Film, for a conversation about his new book, A Light in the Dark: A History of Movie Directors, with NBC’s Bill Goldstein.
Brilliant, witty, and richly observed, Thomson’s new book examines the lives and work of some of cinema’s most innovative and distinctive directors — including Orson Welles, Alfred Hitchcock, Jean Renoir, Jean-Luc Godard, Jane Campion, Spike Lee, and Quentin Tarantino. Hear him discuss the role of the director in modern film, the genesis of his writing project, his candid takes on the big winners (and surprises) at this year’s Academy Awards ceremonies, and much more.
