Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Originally published in 1998 by Prion Books, London. Andrew, film editor of the British magazine is an excellent film critic, adept at relaying clearly both his critical notions and the, at times, extremely oblique plots of the films he discusses. Among the directors whose work he examines in-depth are Spike Lee, David Lynch, John Sayles, the Coen brothers, Jim Jarmusch, Quentin Tarantino, and perhaps most sensitively, Todd Haynes.
