Veteran Los Angeles Times and NPR film critic Kenneth Turan likens his new book "Not to Be Missed," to a "spiritual autobiography." The lifelong cinema devotee has included 54 films in his recently published celluloid canon, ranging from established classics like "Casablanca" and "The Godfather" to overlooked gems like "First Contact" and "Leolo." We'll talk to Turan about his book and we want to hear from you: What films would you put on your Not-To-Be-Missed list?

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Kenneth Turan, film critic for the Los Angeles Times and Morning Edition on NPR, and author of "Not to Be Missed: Fifty-Four Favorites from a Lifetime of Film"
