Not that it's terrible, Thomson writes extremely well and engagingly, and he brings out more about his subject than you might think possible. It's just that there is too much here about movies which I haven't seen, don't plan to see, and though Thomson does his best in trying to make them a part of his overall narrative it ends up being a little bit too obscure to fully appreciate. I like the concept of the book quite a bit- biographical criticism of alluring and complex stars written poetically ought to be done more often, like in the old days, I say. But this is somewhat deadened for me by its material, which is necessarily vague and uninteresting, I think.
