If the goal of this book is indeed to include a little bit of everything, then what is to prevent the resulting list of 1001 films from being just a cinematic smorgasbord—a case of mere variety taking precedence over true value? Good questions all. The first step in determining the 1001 movies to be included here involved taking a close look at a number of existing “greatest,” “top,” “favorite,” and “best” film lists, and prioritizing titles based on the frequency with which they appeared. This allowed us to identify something like a canon of classics (including modern and contemporary films) that we felt confident warranted a spot in this book on the joint basis of quality and reputation.

A Trip to the Moon directly reflects the histrionic personality of its director, Georges Méliès, whose past as a theater actor and magician influences the making of the movie. The film boldly experiments with some of the most famous cinematic techniques, such as superimpositions, dissolves, and editing practices that would be widely used later on. Despite the simplicity of its special effects, the film is generally considered the first example of science-fiction cinema. It offers many elements characteristic of the genre—a spaceship, the discovery of a new frontier—and establishes most of its conventions.
