Fact Attack!

SFX - - Total Recall -

As the decade goes on films de­cline in num­ber; 1970 has 24 films, 1979 has five. The de­cline of our film in­dus­try in the ’70s is laid bare.

The pa­per­back edi­tion of this book set me back £24.99 in 2001, but copies are cur­rently go­ing for £160 on Ama­zon. Hard­backs are £295!

There are a few mis­fires: the por­ten­tous Don’t Look Now es­say is bizarre; the in­clu­sion of A Clock­work Or­ange and Straw Dogs is daft.

Most of the re­views are rewrit­ten ver­sions of ones that ap­peared in the ex­cel­lent sex & hor­ror fanzine Flesh & Blood (which I own all of!).
