Ten of the best books about film

Andrew Pulver, film editor at the Guardian, tagged ten of the best books about movies, including:
Easy Riders, Raging Bulls
Peter Biskind

A stone-cold classic from the moment it arrived in 1998. Biskind, a former editor of Premiere magazine, produced a detailed, insightful and immensely readable account of the (until then) relatively neglected achievements of the 70s “movie brats” and their outpouring of masterworks. Both scholarly and popular, Biskind’s book turned a whole new generation on to the Hollywood new wave.

Easy Riders, Raging Bulls is on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books on making movies and Leo Braudy's list of the five best books on Hollywood.
