Read "Twelve" by Nick McDonell.  The author was 18 when he wrote it.  If I remember correctly, Bret Easton Ellis and Hunter S. Thompson praised the book when it came out.

hey does anyone knows if the books that Kubrick recomended once on filmmaking actually exist?
 I think one was written by Pudovkin.

I read the Sci-Fi at home before I go to bed and I read the Michael Moore book at work after I finish my lunch for about 30 minutes a day.
