About this item
"A work of shimmering, glimmering genius" - Stephen FryGordy LaSure’s passionate about film. He eats film, he drinks film, and sometimes he’ll even watch a film. But most of all he loves talking to people about film: whether a comely student with low confidence and a father complex, a Studio "development' exec who doesn’t trust his own judgement, or the countless people Gordy LaSure’s encountered in his capacity as the web moderator on an Excessive Sweating Discussion Forum. Gordy LaSure’s alwaystalking about films and how they’d be a shit ton better if only people would pull their asses out of their ears and listen to Gordy LaSure.The voyage of this book can be categorized as an attempt to understand How In Hell Film Works. Why are some films bad, and some films terrible?How come just a handful of films (Titanic, Porky’s, Dirty Harry) areany good at all? Gordy’ll tell you How and Why, and he’ll give you a slug of Wherefore on the side. And he doesn’t shoot from the hip; he shoots from the gut.
