Did you get book vouchers for Christmas? Or maybe you’d just like to treat yourself to a book, Well, I’ve found some that you might be interested in. Now, I haven’t read any of these books yet but they are on my ‘to read’ list. So here we are, five film related books that I think sound interesting and all are all available via Amazon.
I love The Princess Bride, who does’t? So this book is right up my street. When I bought the special edition of the film I was treated to some great extras including a behind the scenes style video filmed by Elwes.
I know quite a bit about the making of the film but I’m sure there are some interesting stories in this book.
This looks like a must have for all Carpenter fans. The photographs are taken by Kim Gottlieb Walker Carpenter’s unit photographer who was first hired for Halloween but went on to shoot stills on the sets of some of Carpenter’s most well known films such as Halloween, The Fog and Escape from New York.
Robert Altman is a highly regarded director and this book put together by his wife is like a visual history of his work. Martin Scorsese and other Hollywood alumni add their own touches to the book which covers Altman’s films and has lots of unseen content.
David Thomson, a British film critic who lives in America, writes about 1,000 books and by all accounts it’s a hoot! It has some great reviews on Amazon and with a title like that, how could I ignore it?
While I don’t really subscribe to the idea of ‘guilty pleasures’ I do enjoy hearing about the things other people feel guilty for liking.
So there you are, five books that I think sound pretty good. Have you read a good film related book recently? I’m currently reading Ayoade on Ayoade by the brilliant Richard Ayoade, it’s excellent.
