A List of Lists: March 2012


Visit NYPL's BiblioCommons for these lists and many more. You can also create your own and share them with us in the comments! See below for some interesting staff picks from the past month, on topics both timely and timeless:

Family & Home



  • Immigrant Experience Films
  • Ryan's 5 Favorite Independent Films That Are Worth Checking Out - with companion blog post.
  • April 2012 DVD Releases... Reserve Your Copy Now! - Highlights include Academy Award Best Picture winner, The Artist, Best Picture nominee, War Horse, and The Iron Lady, starring Best Actress in a Leading Role, Meryl Streep. April also has big Hollywood thrillers, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Contraband, and The Darkest Hour. Also, there's We Bought a Zoo, if that's your thing.
  • No but I read the book: Hot 2012 Forthcoming Movies Based on Novels - 2012 is on fire with a new crop of literary adaptations, sci-fi & fantasy, zombies, favorite subway reads, vampires, and biopic of Lincoln (not to mention a vampiric biopic of Lincoln)! Something for everyone. Sure you love the book but are incensed at the movie version which refuses to capture its essence, but nevertheless, movie tie-in editions are being newly released for the occasion, getting them into the hands of readers. So catch up on these books before the movie comes out!
  • Horror Movies - Are you afraid of the dark?
  • Introduction to the French New Wave (Nouvelle Vague) - The label "New Wave" appeared in a published investigation regarding social phenomena among the postwar generation. The term became associated with a loose collective of intellectual film critics tied to the journal Cahiers du Cinema, who advocated for a breaking away from the "tyranny of narrative" in favor of a new form of film language rooted in mise-en-scène, as well as the long take and deep composition.

I love lists!

Thank you for putting this together. I doubt very much that I would have found all the great lists that are coming out if this blog post wasn't up.
