From the inside cover:
The peerless, fearless, inimitable Pauline Kael singlehandedly turned moviegoing into a popular art form in 1965 with I Lost it at the Movies. As critic of The New Yorker she has been going full tilt ever since. Hooked is her ninth collection (and eleventh book), and it brings together all of her reviews since July 1985. The scope is wide—Out of Africa, The Color Purple, Dirty Dancing, Radio Days, Hannah and her Sisters, Platoon, Hope and Glory, Broadcast News, Top Gun, Fatal Attraction, The Last Emperor...more than 150 movies in all.
