This review is from: "Have You Seen...?": a Personal Introduction to 1,000 Films Including Masterpieces, Oddities and Guilty Pleasures (with Just a Few Disasters) (Paperback)
A fascinating, amazingly knowledgeable set of discussions of largely pre-1960s films you may well not have seen prompting all sorts of dvd buying strategies. At times the author gets right up your nose because of his opinionated and obtuse cleverness but I don't feel there are many people in the world who could have achieved what he has done. The personality which comes through is engaged, precise, visionary, eclectic, emphatic and decisive. Infuriating very occasionally, but original and readable throughout. He wrote a novel with Marlon Brando but isn't very kind to him - that is slightly undispassionate.
