5.0 out of 5 stars The best book ever on brit cult cinema, 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Offbeat (Paperback)
Offbeat is by far the best book on british cinema that i have ever read.It is that good.Tired of reading about the same old cult films such as get carter and the wicker man,this book on obscure and forgotten brit films from the fifties to the eighties has now set me off on a journey to locate films such as i start counting,and soon the darkness,and flight of the doves.The boys in blue has always been a guilty pleasure,but how many fans of cult cinema have ever seen the tv-spin off The lovers starring the genius that was richard beckinsale.This book will point out to you things that you never realised-such as the fact that in get carter the gangster jack carter played by michael caine supposedly returns on a vengeance mission to his native newcastle without retaining even the slightest hint of a regional accent.It is these observations that make offbeat a must buy for any cult movie geek like myself.
Mi verdict-just buy the flipping thing!
