It's Only a Movie : Reel Life Adventures of a Film Obsessive
What happens when you spend most of your childhood in a cinema? Can you really learn about the world by watching triple-bills of Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, Slade in Flame and Krakatoa: East of Java?Or does it mean that movies become more real than ?real life?? In It?s Only a Movie the UK?s leading film critic Mark Kermode considers all of these questions, drawing on scenes from his life that he remembers with cinematic clarity ? getting shot at while interviewing Werner Herzog in the Hollywood Hills, being handbagged by Helen Mirren at the Bafta Awards ceremony, and being thrown out of the Cannes Film Festival for heckling in very bad French.Whether reflecting on why he was punched for writing a bad review of Blue Velvet or rueing the day he spent travelling through Russia in a broken-down Lada on the trail of the low-budget horror movie Dark Waters, Mark Kermode has written a hilarious account of a life obsessed with film that will appeal to anyone who?s ever wondered ?Who would play me in the film of my life?
