1970s Cinema, Distilled: A Must-Have Box Set

Davy Jones never rode a motorcycle alongside Dennis Hopper, but the Monkees and Easy Rider were both creations of rebel producers Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider, who teamed with Steve Blauner to form BBS Productions in 1969.

In the aftermath of the financial crisis, an aimless twentysomething is holed up in a Brooklyn squat, racked with guilt over his stepbrother's death. The Instructions by Adam Levin [McSweeney's, $29] The kind of ambitious debut that occurs once a decade, this 1,000-plus-page carnival ride takes the form of a religious scripture written by an adolescent Jewish terrorist named Gurion Maccabee. The cartoon-character names and postmodern opacity see more

The Best Celebrity Quotes From The New Biographical Dictionary of Film

For 35 years, the critic David Thomson has delighted (and irked) cinemaniacs with his contentious opinions on Hollywood's starlets, legends, and auteurs. It seems Cary Grant is the only sacred cow spared in The New Biographical Dictionary of Film (Knopf, $40). Here are a few bons mots from Thomson's freshly updated, wholly addictive, expanded fifth edition. T.H. On Michael Bay: "He makes noisy garbage; it is his calling, his being and soul.
