Product description

Review

'A work of shimmering, glimmering genius. Finally, brilliant critical appraisals of such luminous cinematic masterworks as Road House and Time Cop allow us to see - as if through a mist - just how movies work and how critics have been fooled into valuing such comparatively mediocre and lame effusions as Citizen Kane, The Seventh Seal or It's a Wonderful Life - none of which, Gordy LaSure shows us, match up to the high water mark of the great Seagal, van Damme, Norris, Swayze and Statham achievements. Never has the cult and mythos of hero been so accurately and insightfully illuminated, or with such excoriating passion, zest, knowledge and insane prejudice.' (Stephen Fry)

Book Description

Richard Ayoade edits and annotates the meditations on film by that master of the medium, Gordy LaSure.
