Confused 'the year's most fascinating oddity in film publishing. ... It must be art cinema's most defiant hour. ... it challenges us to take serious cinema seriously. And no one could dispute the front flyleaf's claim: "Take 100 is the first-ever film festival attempted between the covers of a book." ... The photographs are sensational ... The accompanying texts are anything but glossy. Earnest, intelligent ... why [...] have I fallen for the book? Because I admire its quixotry: how it goes into battle against the windmills. ... Of course, it is desirable that the world wakes up to intelligent cinema and the importance it can have in our lives. If fracturing our coffee tables will do it, bring on the mega-books. ... I myself found Take 100 quite an education. There are a dozen directors here I have barely heard of - even as a full-time, festival traipsing critic. ... Let the new age begin.
