Gathers movie reviews and essays about the making of Mishima and Cocoon, the premiere of The Right Stuff, the Cannes film festival, and the history of Canadian film

From Library Journal:

Canada's best-known film critic offers a hodgepodge on the current state of moviemaking. Part 1 consists of articles on subjects as diverse as the making of Mishima in Japan, a piece on the hoopla surrounding the premiere of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, an even wittier entry on several visits to the Cannes Film Festival, a biting history of Canadian film, and a striking essay on the career of the self-destructive German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Part 2 is an A-to-Z arranged selection of film reviews, which span the last decade. Throughout, Scott is provocative and irreverent. Recommended for medium to large-sized film collections. Christopher Schemering, formerly with Arlington Cty. P.L., Va.
