Event Details

Author David Thomson

A sultry con artist trips up a wealthy and naïve young heir and inveigles him into her stateroom; A thief seduces the woman who caught him trying to steal her mother’s car; In the aftermath of a dinner party, a middle-aged American woman in Paris reveals too much about the insecurities and lies that will destroy her marriage. These are just a few of the moments in cinema included by film critic David Thomson in this lavishly illustrated work that not only celebrates, but analyzes film as a visual medium. This engrossing book by famed cinema writer David Thomson is an indispensable addition to any film lover’s library.

Organizer

Mechanics' Institute Library & Chess Room

The Mechanics' Institute Library and Chess Room is an historic membership library, cultural event center, and chess club located in the Financial District of San Francisco, California at 57 Post Street. Founded in 1854 to serve the vocational needs of out-of-work gold miners, the Institute today is a favorite of avid readers, writers, downtown employees, students, film lovers, chess players, and the 21st century nomadic worker who needs a quiet place to plug in a laptop and do research.
