Again_ No References to the Dark Tower
19 April 2005 | by (Connecticut, USA) – See all my reviews

This is not a bad documentary just a very incomplete one. There are no references to his seminal work, "The Dark Tower" series which he began in college and forms the backbone of many of his other novels. It is too defensive. It does not discuss the writers that influenced him, ignoring the Bradbury's and Lovecraft's and more that make Stephen possible. I know that King does not put himself beyond them. It's just unfortunate that old SCi Fi/Horror genre stereotypes were reinforced by the piece.

I loved seeing him at his old residences but where was Connecticut. He spent many years in Stratford as a child.

For a supposed literary documentary there is a bit too much Hollywood. Although I was very happy to hear him dis Kubrick's Shining. It is an interesting Kubrick but it's not a King.
