Coming soon from my book:

In 2022 I reacquired the rights to my book, and I’m posting the chapters here as I revise each one. The following 7 chapters (out of 100) still need work before I put them online. Estimated completion in mid-2024.

  1. I Wake Up Screaming (1941, H. Bruce Humberstone)
  2. Phone Call from a Stranger (1952, Jean Negulesco)
  3. Chase a Crooked Shadow (1958, Michael Anderson)
  4. Seconds (1966, John Frankenheimer)
  5. Nathalie Granger (1972, Marguerite Duras)
  6. Diva (1981, Jean-Jacques Beineix)
  7. Pan’s Labyrinth (2006, Guillermo del Toro)
