Midnight Matinees: Movies and Their Makers, 1978-1985

by Jay Scott

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Canada's best-known film critic offers a hodgepodge on the current state of moviemaking. Part 1 consists of articles on subjects as diverse as the making of Mishima in Japan, a piece on the hoopla surrounding the premiere of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, an even wittier entry on several visits to the Cannes Film Festival, a biting history of Canadian film, and a striking essay on the career of the self-destructive German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Part 2 is an A-to-Z arranged selection of film reviews, which span the last decade. Throughout, Scott is provocative and irreverent. Recommended for medium to large-sized film collections. Christopher Schemering, formerly with Arlington Cty. P.L., Va.
