Not to be Missed: Fifty-Four Favorites from a Lifetime of Film

not to be missedIn his 2014 book, Not to be Missed: Fifty-Four Favorites from a Lifetime of Film, film critic Kenneth Turan discusses fifty-four films which he considers like ‘friends who’ve enriched my life.’

The book, as well as nearly every film on this list, is readily available through the Minerva network, as part of the collections of the South Portland Public Library and other Minerva member libraries.  This page collects quick links to the titles so that, if you are interested, you may easily request the items.

In addition to the main list of fifty-four films, Turan’s book also contains A Second Fifty-Four, an additional list of films which the author considers to be well worth a watch.
