Enter Frank's 500, the easy-to-use guide to 500 key international thrillers - the good, the bad and the ugly. From the gangster movies of the thirties, to the hard-boiled actioners of the nineties. Thrillers, mysteries and suspense films by Alfred Hitchcock, Howard Hawks, John Huston, Don Siegel, Sam Peckinpah, Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg, right up to Brian Singer and Robert Rodriguez. Gripping movies starring the greats from James Cagney, Cary Grant and Grace Kelly to Uma Thurman, Brad Pitt and Harvey Keitel.

Alan Frank's candid, forthright opinions lace Frank's 500 with a welcome touch of irreverance - it's open season on sacred cows! Each review contains a brief plot summary with full credits, contemporary reviews, and a "dagger rating" to assess each movie at a glance
