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 Chytilová'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.
