Yes, four stars because I really liked the book. This isn't Cahiers du Cinéma; it's a straightforward list of places in San Francisco that pop up in forty-odd films, stuffed with facts and droll bits of trivia. Maybe it's only captivating if you're a fan or resident of the cool gray city of love. I've seen most of these films and lived in SF for 23 years – but almost everything was new to me.

A San Francisco treat.

I'll be adding a lot of these to my netflix queue~
