[quote=“Søren, post:1, topic:1135”]Finished this book some days ago and just want to come with a couple of words of warning.
People buying this book expecting it to contain valuable insider knowledge of how Mark Damon’s spaghetti western movie days went will be terribly disappointed, not many pages are spent on that particular period. In fact most of the pages are endless listings of Damon’s PSO years discussing who bought what movies at what sum and why that was ‘fun’ or who didn’t buy a particular movie and why etc etc. Perhaps very interesting for people very hooked on knowing the mechanics of movie selling, but probably not, as this book apart from focusing on the most boring part of film making (getting the money and selling the shit) suffers from really bad writing.
Oh and of course not a page goes by without Mark Damon bedding some new startlet or what gives which is fun to read in the beginning but gets on ones nerves as the pages carry on plus it makes Mr. Damon come out as somewhat of a bastard.
Avoid at all means. Even if a price of one penny or one pound may seem fair, let me assure you: It’s NOT.[/quote]
Haha…that pretty much sums up what i thought of it too. Mind you, although i have enjoyed a lot of his films he always looked like a smug git to me anyway so none of it came as any surprise
