Intellect's Directory of World Cinema: East Europe

The East Europe volume of Intellect's Directory of World Cinema is now available to order over at Amazon and Amazon UK. I have a number of pieces in this new volume including my reviews of Vera Chytilov√°'s Daisies (1966), Dusan Makavejev's WR: Mysteries of the Organism (1971), Walerian Borowczyk's Blanche (1972), and Milos Forman's Loves of a Blonde (1965). I also have two longer articles in the book on the careers of Krzysztof Kieslowski and Walerian Borowczyk. The book also features my tope-five list of personal favorite Eastern European films for those interested.

It's a great looking volume and I am proud to have some of my work (especially my pieces on Borowczyk) featured, especially in that it gives me the opportunity to be in the same volume with one of my favorite writers, Daniel Bird. Thanks to those who might order a copy and I hope you enjoy the book.

I will next be appearing in Volume 2 of the American Independent edition, which is scheduled to street later this year.

Nicely done sir! I can't keep up with their releases - I didn't even know this one was coming out. I look forward to reading your article on "Daisies" - a simply wonderful film. I'm extremely excited that it's getting a release on the upcoming Czech New Wave Eclipse set.

I'll be in the next volume of Intellect's Japan series (coming out in April I think) with 7 or 8 reviews. Thank goodness they have good editors there...B-)

Thanks so much for the very nice comments Bob! Glad to hear you love Daisies as well as it is a real favorite of mine. I was thrilled to have gotten to write on it for the book. I can't wait to read your upcoming pieces in the next volume of the Japan series! Thanks again...
