really liked it

Just the title of this was enuf to make me want to read it for a long time - but it took me a long time to get around to it. Any bk w/ this as a basic premise is likely to appeal to me. The cover image is from Makavajev's "WR". This is mostly capsule reviews so it's not as in-depth as it cd be but WHAT A SELECTION! These are probably the movies nearest & dearest to me.

Mark Hejnar This book completely changed my life. Pretentious sounding, but I mean it. found it in a used bookstore in 1981 in Burlington, Vermont, the only city outside of my small redneck hometown. I was a senior in high school. it made me want to make films instead of being an actor. making things that had no relation to anything I had seen before. I got to see many of the films listed at film school in chicago. I remember being the only person who liked them. I will always hold this book dear.
