The man be­hind such cult favourites as Johnny Suede (which fea­tured Brad Pitt as the epony­mous rocker), Liv­ing In Obliv­ion and Box Of Moon­light, Tom DiCillo is one of US in­die cinema’s fore­most film­mak­ers.

Through ex­ten­sive in­ter­views with the director and many of his ac­tors, in­clud­ing Steve Buscemi (who also con­trib­utes the fore­word), Cather­ine Keener, John Tur­turro and Matthew Mo­dine, Hot Press con­trib­u­tor Wayne Byrne – a life­long fan – of­fers a bril­liant in­sight into DiCillo’s unique, idio­syn­cratic style and fiercely per­sonal ap­proach.

It cer­tainly hasn’t been plain sail­ing for DiCillo, and the book fear­lessly chron­i­cles the var­i­ous ob­sta­cles he has had to over­come to make his movies. Funny, mov­ing, en­ter­tain­ing and in­sight­ful, In­clude Me Out is a truly riv­et­ing ac­count of one man’s in­cred­i­ble ded­i­ca­tion to his art.PAUL NOLAN
