Yeah that's kind of Nayman's style..... if you see his interview he talks like that in real time. Sometimes it can be obnoxious......

I liked the his Coen Book, didn't buy it, but listened to it on audible at work over a couple days last year.
Looking forward to this one, will probably just listen to it again.
And according to that Junk Filter podcast, it sounds like a Fincher one is on the way.

Interesting take on the book and his filmography/career in general.

Interesting review and take. I pretty much agree.

I don't understand the point of the article nor the relation between title and content. But writers don't write titles for their articles.

Just read the Safdie Boys introduction.  Goosebumps.  Needless to say, I completely share their reaction to Boogie Nights.   I didn't share their passion for early Sandler, but certainly do their regard for P-DL.   Hope the rest of the book is as exciting and rewarding.

Sadly, it isn't yet.   I'm up to the P-DL chapter and my previous comment about the 'chewy' language still applies.  I've appreciated some of his insights but found the typos (and an error regarding L.A. streets) somewhat annoying.  I photos don't wow me--as the faithful have seen them before.  I'm grateful there are interviews to wrap things up--I'm really looking forward to those.

I just find myself wishing it was all more....fun?....to read.

Shyriiwook takes some getting used to, for sure.
