Pauline Kael, winner of the American National Book Award for her film criticism in 1974, contributed over the years an enormous number of short pieces for the New Yorker's famous 'Goings on About Town', giving a run-down on what movies were playing in any given week. These screen listings have now been compiled, updated and expanded by Kael into a huge alphabetical guide to thousands of films of every conceivable style, genre and appeal.
