Personal Quote:

[on Louise Brooks] Louise Brooks is the only woman who had the ability to transfigure no matter what film into a masterpiece. The poetry of Louise is the great poetry of rare loves, of magnetism, of tension, of feminine beauty as blinding as ten galaxial suns. She is much more than a myth, she is a magical presence, a real phantom, the magnetism of the cinema. See more »


Author of "Surrealism in Cinema", a very influential book on Luis Bunuel and other great filmmakers.
